Ok so i downloaded and extracted the linux x86 drivers and followed the instructions in the readme which are: 1. Run self extract 2. Change init level to 3 3. restart and log in as root 4. do commands: cd /root sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7676-pkg1.run 5. Go through installer stuff... yea all that 6. Change your xorg.config: Changing driver "nv" to driver "nvidia", and remove Load "dri" and Load "GLCore"(which wasnt there in the first place) then add Load "glx"(which was already there) Then i rebooted and ran startx then it came up with a black screen oh joy! So being the linux noob i am i didnt know how to access the xorg.config from the prompt so i just reinstalled. Tried it again(two more times actually) thinking i mistyped or something and got the same results. Any ideas?
