January 31st, 2010, 11:39 PM
Hey all, I hope this is an easy question to answer, how do update my nVidia drivers? Can I add a repository so it automatically updates? I have downloaded the latest verson from the nvidia
website. When I so a "sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-190.53-pkg2.run" I get

"Error: You appear to be running an X server; please exit X before installing"

Can anyone help??

Have a look here. I haven't tried it myself. I have the nvidia driver that system> administration> hardware drivers offered me, but the advice looks like it might be good.
