    Unhappy BT5 and Nvidia Driver

    Trying to install NVIDIA-Linux-x86-180.22-pkg1 on BT5 with linux-source-2.6.39.4 to no avail droped out of x to shell ran sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-180.22-pkg1 and get this

    ERROR: Unable to build the NVIDIA kernel module.
    ERROR: Installation has failed.
    I attached nvidia-installer.log as it was too many char to post

    You can try to use the nouveau driver. Which works very well with nvidia.
    Or try to install the linux source and use the proprietary driver.

    Dear carbonfiber, I have a nvidia card (8700m GT --NBF Mobile) did you make sure to first close your session of X and use the appropriate chmod parameters. For instance after i close the session of X i type: chmod +x [filename] and then sudo ./[filename] to install my drivers.

    -good luck

    CarbonFiber, Sup!

    Have you tried looking for the driver out of the actual site itself to download?

    http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index5.aspx?lang=en-us

    Under the "OPERATING SYSTEM" section select "Linux 32bit"
    And download it (dont install yet) =] then Restart your computer and When you log back into your BT5. (before you type startx) type
    "sh NV" and press TAB on your keyboard, Then press ENTER and continue the installation there.
    After its done. I believe it should be done =] type "startx"

    If it still doesn't work... I tried my best :/
