Yo to all, I would like to know the way to install the nvidia driver on 10.1. The catch is this : I did not install a bootloader, as I boot GhostBSD from another bootloader, GRUB 2, on another linux distro ? So how will this affect things. I have read the Ghost wiki on nvidia driver installation, and have tried that to no avail. So I believe the difficulty lies in the above bootloader arrangement. Time to Chime
If you read my previous post, I read that and tried it several times, with no luck. Where it notes in the wiki that you need to add some commands if using grub or bsd bootloader what if anything needs to be added considering my HD and OS arrangement ?
If you are using GRUB boot loader then you must load driver with rc.conf: echo 'kld_list="nvidia"' >> /etc/rc.conf If you are using BSD loader you may use loader.conf: echo 'nvidia_load="YES"' >> /boot/loader.conf
I have tried both seperately and what happens is it brings me to the login page with the grey background only ! no username or other usual icons are present. So...do you need to skip these added commands : Using this commands add needed lines to corresponding files (pay attention at Note!):
echo 'linux_load="YES"' >> /boot/loader.conf echo 'linux_enable="YES"' >> /etc/rc.conf echo 'hint.agp.0.disabled="1"' >> /boot/device.hints; ....when using the above ones ?
