Hi,

Does anyone know how to run Nvidia-Xconfig? I installed the Nvidia drivers
but am being prompted than I am not using the Nvidia X driver and that I
need to edit my X configuration by using Nvidia-Xconfig. I can open up the
manual by typing man Nvidia-Xconfig but I do not know how to run
Nvidia-Xconfig. I am using Fedora 9/64 KDE 4.1


As root:
nvidia-xconfig

Can't get any easier than that.




I tried that already but all I get is error "command not found". I even
tried going to the folder containing nvidia-xconfig but I still get the same
error when I just type nvidia-xconfig.


It should have been installed in /usr/bin, which is, by default, in
your $PATH.  So unless you've got a non-traditional setup, it should
work fine.  Did you install the official driver package, or an RPM ?



My installation is in /usr/sbin and is an official driver package. Strange
ha?

>From where did you obtain the driver package?
Which driver version did you install?
Are you running it as root ?


Now I know what it was. When I was typing "./definatly-xconfig" I was using capitalized letters and was typing "./Nvidia-Xconfig". I just keep forgetting that Linux is case sensitive. I am a complete MS Windows expert even with Vista but Linux is a new animal to me. One more thing I discovered is that there are no drivers available for the latest kernel so I just need to wait a bit. But thank you for your effort to help, I definitely appreciate it.
