That's weird. If you manually download the deb file, then copy it into a new directory, then do:

ar x *.deb


tar xzf data.tar.gz

then go to the place where the nvidia-*.tar.gz file is


tar xzf nvidia-*.tar.gz

then go to the place with the code, and run:


what is the result of the make command?

Also, I'm pretty new to linux and have always had trouble getting make to work.
I made a directory with asus_nvidia.c and Makefile, with the code copied and pasted from above. When I cd to the directory and run make, all I get is:
make: Nothing to be done for `default'.
Should I modify the make file? I'm not sure what the code in it does.

Can someone help me out? I'd love to get this nvidia card turned off until they have good drivers.
