I just installed Saybayon10 amd64. I have an NVidia gt 430 graphix card and I want to update the drivers to the latest
ones from nvidia.
I tried to search for the term "nvidia" and this forum said its to common a word to search for, so I spent a few hours scanning various posts and threads and couldnt see much in the way of a clear guide about how to update the driver in this OS.
I'd really apreciate being pointed in the right direction.
I use Blender and GIMP alot and I like to play some online games (as well as watch hulu) so I'd like to keep my poor graphix card up to its best.
I tried to play RIFT through wine and it sort of started but it told me my drivers were woafully out of date and its opening video wouldn't display (just flashing white/black screen sized boxes till I hit esc). its control ui came on ok but the choose-characters image behind the start bar would not show.
WoW gives 26 - 45 fps (with spikes to 58 occasionaly) on windows, same card - up to date drivers - its 65 - 110 fps.
Hulu playes vides well, and vimeo plays in HD if I want but its kind of chopy sometimes though that might be my connection.
Havent tested Blender or GIMP yet
Thank you for what ever light you can shed on this.
(keep in mind that I'm something of an idiot sometimes .... so type Sloowwly and clearlly Please
