During setup of 8.2 personal I attempted to run the setup for the Nvidia driver from Nvidia's web site, but I got the error "couldn't find the program 'NVIDIA-LInux-x86 1.0-4496.run' ". Any advice would be appriciated.

The file I downloaded is not named that ...mine is NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run

from where the file is type this to see the full file name:

ls NVIDIA*

(also, when typing on the console you can press the Tab key for auto fill-in .... so after typing NV then hit the Tab key and you might get the whole filename...)

first thing to do is make the file executeable ....

from within the directory where the file is do this:

chmod 755 NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run

then to run the program, type this (from within the directory where the file is downloaded).

./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run

This must be done from a character based bootup, with X windows not running (as root). To get to charater based mode login, type 3 in the kernel boot options block when you slect your kernel on bootup....login is as the root user and do the above.
