Re: nVidia 9500M GS driver
Yes you will have to upgrade the driver with every kernel upgrade but in gutsy and feisty this didn't happen too often. Its easy to install really. you just need your kernels source and the nvidia sh package from their website then drop down in a terminal by
then stop gnome by
then run the package by
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop
(replace stars with file name of course) from the directory the package is in. You might have to
If the file doesn't execute properly.
chmod +x nvidia*****.sh
Or you can get envy and it should do it all for you.
edit:I just thought of something. I don't think envy will get beta drivers, Not really sure though.
I prefer the manual way.
And sorry I don't own a 9500m but i plan on owning one in the near future
