RE: nvidia GEForce graphics card issue with FC4



So your installation could actually connect to ftp.nvidia.com?

I can't connect during installation or even later, such as now (just  a
test)....

ncftp ftp.nvidia.com

NcFTP 3.1.9 (Mar 24, 2005) by Mike Gleason (http://www.NcFTP.com/contact/).
Connecting to ftp.nvidia.com...                                                

Could not connect to ftp.nvidia.com -- try again later: Connection timed out.  

Redialing (try 1)...                                                           


(hangs)

On the other hand, 

ncftp download.nvidia.com

Anonymous user logged in.
Logged in to download.nvidia.com.                                              

ncftp / > 

But this is no help because that script uses ftp.nvidia.com.

Any suggestions?

Many thanks!


Many thanks!
