I wanted to work on cuda in linux fedora 10 32bit. I have installed fedora 10 and i have installed cuda tool kit, cuda software development kit but I dont know how to install the graphics driver. I have downloaded graphics driver version 190 which has cuda support.
Here is what happened
My user name in fedora 10 is Max. i opened terminal and typed follwing commands
[Max@Max-Gear ~]$ su
[root@Max-Gear Max]# su -
[root@Max-Gear ~]# ls
anaconda-ks.cfg install.log install.log.syslog
[root@Max-Gear ~]# sh /home/Max/Desktop/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-190.53-pkg1.run
Verifying archive integrity… OK
Uncompressing NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86 190.53…
Then it opened next page and showed an error. it said
ERROR: You appear to be running an X server; please exit X before
installing. For further details, please see the section INSTALLING
THE NVIDIA DRIVER in the README available on the Linux driver
download page at www.nvidia.com.
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file
‘/var/log/nvidia-installer.log’ for details. You may find

there is no readme file with driver. I tried to login in using userid root and i have set admin password as 231458 during installation but fedora is telling user cannot be authenticated. What am i supposed to do. How to install the driver???
