Nvidia problem
« on: February 12, 2010, 03:11:55 pm »
This might not be the place for this but this is where I found the post that I think can help me. Ok I needed to update my kernel so I could get my wireless running and my nvidia drive went out.  I tried the update that is on the kernel downloads and it doesn't work at all.  looked around an I found the post listed below and he has the same problem as me but when I downloaded the drive  I got two run files.  Where do I put them or how do I install the drivers is what I need help with.

There are nvidia drivers included with the SOHO. If you did not opt those drivers out during installation. You no longer have to do the terminal deal with the drivers. Just go to the vasmcc and install the drivers, log out, and bam the drivers take effect because X automatically restarts itself when you log out.
