Nvidia Linux Display Driver IA64 1.0-5336
How do I install this Nvidia graphics driver?
In order to install the Nvidia Linux Display Driver IA64 on your Itanium computer powered by a Linux kernel-based operating system, you will have to first install the kernel headers for your Linux kernel and download the binary package from the Downloads section above in the “run” file format.
The “run” file is actually a command-line installer that must be saved on your Home directory. Exit your graphical session and enter a console environment, where you will have to switch to the root account and execute the "sh NVIDIA-Linux-ia64-1.0-5336-pkg1.run" command (without quotes).
During the installation, after the kernel module was successfully compiled, you will be asked if you want to manually edit the X configuration file or let the installer set the optimum settings for your Nvidia graphics card (recommended). After installation, reboot your machine, enter your graphical session and run the “nvidia-xconfig” command via an X11 terminal emulator to make it the default video driver.
Is my Itanium hardware supported?
To be honest, we have no idea, as we don’t own such hardware here at the Softpedia Labs, but considering the fact that Nvidia published such a video driver, it should work with most Itanium computers. Be aware though, that Nvidia Linux Display Driver IA64 is no longer under active maintenance do to the unpopularity of the Itanium IA-64 architecture. Therefore, this driver is no longer published on the official Nvidia Linux Driver page.
