Do you actually have any interest in using PCLinuxOS or are you here just to waste our support resources until you get bored and move to Linux distribution number 13? Nvidia drivers are Nvidia drivers and closed source so the only difference between distros is the version number.
Well I'll know that if and when the system works as intended won't I?
Wasting your support resources - what are you talking about? Isn't the nvidia driver supposed to work? Of course it is. I've installed it and it doesn't work with the Gnome system on my laptop - even though it works on several other Gnome-based distros on the same laptop. I was just wondering if I could get it to work. I would expect you to be wondering why it isn't working too.
If Nvidia drivers are Nvidia drivers (as you say) and the current version is working on 5 other Linux distros installed on the same laptop but not working on PCLinuxOS-gnome, then surely there must be some difference somewhere.
If you don't want to try to get to the bottom of it, Texstar, then that's fine. No problem at all. But don't have a chip at me just for a cheap shot. I'll make my own decisions as to which distros I iinstall and which I shall use on a daily basis.
djohnston, yes the Nvidia drivers are installed by default, but not active by default (or they weren't in the first 3 installations here).
Thanks for the link. I'll mosey on over there.
