its very easy my friend  Cool

run konsole and type down or copy paste following

Code:
sudo pisi ur

Code:
sudo pisi it nvidia-kernel nvidia-glx nvidia-tools

Code:
sudo nvidia-xconfig



note : it will ask a password, it is your user pasword ( not superuser )

then ctrl+alt+backspace to run your driver. if you see nvidia logo means it's working.

Don't you have to configure anything (xcorg.config) for 3d acceleration?

By giving the command "nvidia-xconfig" at end of the process, you already do configuration. So, it's not necessary to configure anything manually.

If you couldn't manage to configure xorg.conf with "nvidia-xconfig" command, you can do it this way:
Press Alt+F2 key combination and write
Quote
kdesu kwrite /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Then, xorg.conf file will open. Find the "Section Device" section and change "nv" to "nvidia" and if "RenderAccel" line is "false", change it to "true". Then save the file and re-start the X by pressing "Ctrl+Alt+BackSpace" key combination.
That's it.

When I do this, my NVidia card is installed, but the fonts in Firefox are all blurred. Are there also newer drivers?

Is that the one which is on the Pardus 1.0 repository? That one gives those blurred characters. Found out that I need a newer driver, how can I accomplish that?

You can build the latest version of nvidia drivers and at the and you will have 3 pisi packages called "nvidia-kernel", "nvidia-glx" and "nvidia-tools". After instaling these pisi packages just give the the command nvidia-xconfig as root.
Code:
sudo pisi build http://svn.pardus.org.tr/pardus/devel/kernel/drivers/nvidia/pspec.xml

Code:
sudo pisi it *.pisi

Code:
nvidia-xconfig

Then you must install nvidia-old-drivers or you can upgrade the kernel.

I think I should upgrade the kenel then, because the old driver blurs all my texts...

Next question: how to do it?
