i bought a distribution called aurox for 12€, based on fedora core. installation was a pain (yea i’m a lazy OSX user), but finally worked. blender works, but without 3d-acceleration.
the magazine that came with the dis said how to install the included nvidia drivers for my geforce
"… switch to a terminal, log in as root, kill the window-manager with telinit 3…
…run …/nvidia.sh to install the drivers…
…start the win-man with telinit 5…"
the installation quit with an error:
“…ld wasn’t found. make sure …blah… you have binutils and/or ld is in your PATH…”
so, the 1000 $ question: what is ld, what are binutils, how to handle PATH? in the meantime i’m further investigating in that case - the nvidia website sais different things about the installation procedure.
