    Hi!

    I decided to try to start using Ubuntu 64x on my main rig and its so different from using Windows that I have problems installing my grafics card driver.

    The 3 drivers Ubuntu suggests in System/Administration/Hardware Drivers for my Nvidia Quadro NVS285 all lock up the system after installing and so I also tried to install the latest driver from Nvidia itself for my card.

    Now I have a .run driver file that I don't know how to install since from what I have read so far on the internet I only got more confused.

    Thx for advice!

    Lauri

    If it's a .run file you should double-click it, it'll run and install your drivers.

    If that doesn't work, your probably screwed.
