    Default Installing Nvidia drivers

    Hi Guys,

    It appears i can only post in the newbie section, which to be fair is probably the best place for me as im no linux pro.

    Basically i used to use bt2 and know how to crack wep etc, but im still useless on linux.

    I recently installed the stripped down cd version of bt3 to my hard disk, and have it dual boot with vista.

    I now want to use compiz-fusion, i fixed the gslapt update problem and installed it, but it didnt start working or anything.

    I gues i need to install nvidia drivers, i got some in lzm format from the wiki, but being a tard i have absolutely no idea what to do with it. I managed to exctract it so i have a folder called nvidia, which contains other folders (dev, usr etc.) but i dont know how to install it.

    Can anyone help? Sorry for the big post!

    On a full install as he is talking about, just
    Code:
    lzm2dir nvidia.lzm /
    And they are installed.

    Or for a live,dvd,usb stick install look here.

    Good link 'parrot

    Well since i use a bit outdated nvidia drivers i installed the ones from nvidia's
    website by configuring and compiling them, it worked fineee

    Yeah thats how i did it, downloaded the bt kernel and took it from there.

    My original post was because, being a noob, i didnt know what to do with a .lzm.

    Balding parrots solution seems to be the easiest.

    Yeah that was good, but yes i did download the BT3 Kernel and put it
    in the directory it needs to be in, and then i compiled the nvidia drivers
    and also the nvidia configuration manager which is good to have afterwards.
