Installing RedHat 9 - part four

by Volker Weber


All done. Kermit is now running RedHat 9 and drives the Sony screen in digital mode.

I removed the second HD yesterday because it was too loud. Then I made some room on Kermit's first HD and reinstalled the system there. It really only takes about 45 minutes to get it up and running. NVidia has an installation routine which checks for the appropriate kernel module and then actually builds one specifically for your kernel. You do need the kernel sources and the compiler for that installed on the machine.

Last but not least, I have to thank two people: The invaluable Stefan Rubner, who is able to help almost around the clock, at least when I am not sleeping. And also specifically Peter Leugner of AS Computer, who sent me detailed instructions for the NVidia driver.
