Colin, I've gone to the "Display Drivers" wiki which directed me to the "Upgrading the Kernel" wiki for the diskless Media Directors section. I've created the stripheader.sh file from the contents on the wiki and did the following:
the next line failed:
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-173.14.12-pkg2.run --keep --add-this-kernel
with this message:
ERROR: this .run file is intended for the
Linux-x86_64 platform, but you appear to be
running on Linux-x86. Aborting installation.
What I'm confused about is a couple of things. I guess I need a different nvidia package from nvidia.com because I'm running i386. If I do, do you know which on works with LinuxMCE 710? When I did this previously, and went to run the next line which invoked stripheader.sh file, it ended with a command not found.
This is how I got off on a different tangent.
Please suggest something, I'm a Linux newbe!
