Setting up nVidia drivers

At work I always forget this so this is a technical note for myself.  Maybe it will help you too?

  • Run lspci to determine what controller you have.
  • Visit the nVidia driver website and select your controller.
  • Stop X (telinit 3)
  • Download the file and chmod 500.
  • Verify you have gcc and kernel-devel packages installed.
  • Execute the program you downloaded from nVidia.
  • Start X (telinit 5)
  • Log in
  • Execute nvidia-settings
  • Activate additional monitor (twinview)
  • May have to enable Xinerama for more than two monitors.
  • Enjoy fruits of labor.
