Method 1 - The first method is automated:
Run: Display Manager [TASMA>System]
Click: Detect Drivers

Method 2 - This method has a GUI and involves selecting the exact packages you need:
Run: Package Manager
Click: Show New Packages
Search: "nvidia"
Check: Appropriate checkboxes. (Depending on whether you use an older, or newer graphics card (1))
Click: "Install Package(s)"
Press: [Control-Alt-Backspace] /OR/ Reboot

Method 3 - The third method requires Konsole and is a text-only installation of the NVIDIA packages:
Run: Konsole [Programs>System]
Type: "sudo pisi ur"
Type: "sudo pisi it nvidia-kernel nvidia-glx nvidia-tools"
Type: "sudo nvidia-xconfig"
Press: [Control-Alt-Backspace] /OR/ Reboot


If there are any more methods, please post a reply detailing it, and I will modify my message accordingly.
If you have an older NVIDIA driver or wish to adjust screen resolution, please follow the subsequent link: http://en.pardus-wiki.org/Hardware:Installing_nVidia_drivers_in_Pardus_2007

This process is rather automated. When you run the display configuration, it suggests you to install nvidia drivers, and, when you accept it, it runs Package Manager for you.

You're referring to navigating to TASMA > Peripherals > Display? Do you have the option to configure the NIVIDA driver afterwards?

Thats why I'm suggesting this method for anyway who wants to try it out, see if they like it. You can select the option to install nvidia-xconfig etc, and anything else that <you> choose to, its got a finer degree of control than than the Display Manager. But, to each his own, I'm just personally used to using Package Manager Smiley

I don't fully understand what exactly you configure by means of your method.

The above links describes the functionelle of "nvidia-xconfig".

Check: Appropriate checkboxes. (depending on the age of your graphics card)
How do I know which is the appropriate checkbox???   Huh?

More information can be found on PardusWiki -  Please contribute wherever you feel like it:
http://en.pardus-wiki.org/Installing_graphics_card_drivers_for_Pardus_2008
I think that your contribution (bottom 2 lines) is disabling the excellent contribution (see image) of the Pardus developers to the Display Manager in Tasma.

..........You can select the option to install nvidia-xconfig ............
This nvidia-xconfig is NOT a gui for nvidia drivers.
If you want another gui for nvidia drivers, you can install nvidia-settings.

Firstly, the appropriate checkbox depends on your NVIDIA drivers, your screenshot has clearly pointed out which packages are appropriate to you.

My contribution is an alternative, why should someone be <denied> the knowledge of an equally effective way of installing NVIDIA drivers? The easier method is listed first, someone reading that page can easily pick it out. Its not Pardus developer<s>, one Pardus Developer wrote the first paragraph which explains how to install the graphics card using the Display Manager, another Developer wrote the last two lines as an alterative with a finer degree of control over what gets installed but as a more time consuming option than that first option.

This topic does not offer a GUI for configuring NVIDIA drivers, it offers a GUI for installing NVIDIA drivers. Ch00k brought up the point that the Display Manager automates the process, I responded by saying you get to choose what is installed and what is not, nvidia-xconfig is one such option.

I'm sorry for the misunderstandings.

I had to read this one twice but now I understand this  Cheesy

I can imagine the misunderstanding that occured and appreciate both of you for contributing to this disucssion without letting misunderstandings escalate to irritations or verbal agression which can easily develop when one misunderstands each other.

Thanks again to both of you.

Run: Display Manager [TASMA>Peripherals]
I think this should be: Run: Display Manager [Tasma>System>]
And I changed the wikipage.

I am changing from the IGP to a NVIDIA card.  Do I install the NVIDIA drivers before I install the card or do I log onto Pardus after the card is installed and then install the drivers.  I will be doing this the middle of next week. Huh? Huh? Huh?

The second option. It doesn't matter when you install the drivers, as long as you have the card installed you can install the drivers whenever you wish - I still haven't installed my NVIDIA drivers.
