View Full Version : nForce drivers for Fedora?
10th December 2003, 11:59 PM
Hi. I'm having issues figuring out which of these many (http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_nforce_1.0-0261) drivers to download for my nForce motherboard. Is it going to be simple, and one of those precompiled things (like Red Hat 9.0) will work, or am I going to have to compile it myself from the Kernel Tar File at the bottom? If I will, can someone give me good directions on how to do so? nVidia's directions are too tech-head and redundant for me to understand :p
Thanks for any help :)

That forum has plenty of guides on a variety of nforce2 motherboards.

Download this http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/nforce/1.0-0261/NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.tar.gz
You will need the kernel-source and proper development packages.
After you get all that squared away untar the nvidia download and cd into it and then cd into the nvnet dir and run make && make install (you do this since there is no need for the sound driver as it is identical to i810_audio) After that you should be able to add the proper alias to /etc/modules.conf
(alias eth0 nvnet) then configure the network interface and be on your way! :)
