Linux - Introduction to the NVIDIA driver installer
After you have downloaded NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg1.run,
begin installation by exiting X, cd'ing into the directory containing
the downloaded file, and run:
The .run file is a self-extracting archive. When the .run file is
executed, it extracts the contents of the archive, and runs the contained
`nvidia-installer` utility, which will walk you through installation of
the NVIDIA driver.
The .run file accepts many commandline options. Here are a few of the
more common options:
Print embedded info about the .run file and exit.
Check integrity of the archive and exit.
Extract the contents of ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629.run,
but do not run 'nvidia-installer'.
Print usage information for the common commandline options
Print usage information for the common commandline options as
well as the advanced options, and then exit.
Installation will also install the utility `nvidia-installer`, which may
be later used to uninstall drivers, auto-download updated drivers, etc.
