nvidia drivers
« on: February 08, 2013, 03:34:05 am »
Is there any way to manually download nvidia drivers.  I have no internet right now.  Needed to reinstall, that want pretty good except for myth.  That doesn't matter because I have no cable either.  So all I really need is some way to install nvidia drivers.  I can use my phone to download them.  Then some how copy them somewhere to install.

You could download the nvidia and associated debs and put them either in  /var/cache/apt/archives or, if you put it in /usr/pluto/deb-cache and recreate the packages files it will be available to all mds.

http://deb.linuxmce.org/ubuntu/dists/lucid/beta2/binary-i386/nvidia-260-kernel-source_260.19.29-0ubuntu1_i386.deb
http://deb.linuxmce.org/ubuntu/dists/lucid/beta2/binary-i386/nvidia-glx-260_260.19.29-0ubuntu1_i386.deb
http://deb.linuxmce.org/ubuntu/dists/lucid/beta2/binary-i386/nvidia-settings_270.29-0ubuntu1~lucid~xup1_i386.deb
http://deb.linuxmce.org/ubuntu/dists/lucid/beta2/binary-i386/pluto-nvidia-video-drivers_2.0.0.45.12081326353_i386.deb

If you want to make them available for all, put it in deb-cache... then run this.
pushd /usr/pluto/deb-cache; dpkg-scanpackages -m . /dev/null | tee Packages | gzip -c > Packages.gz; popd
I never quit... I just ping out.
