Im trying to install the driver for my Geforce 7400 Go graphics card http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_disp ... -8756.html
--> this is the link where i downloaded the driver.
but when i try to install it, it says that it is unable to determine the version of kernel sources located in `/lib/modules/2.6.28-16-generic/build`
before installing this driver i have installed the linux display driver version 185.18.36, according to nivdia website the other driver that im trying to install adds support for my model because my model is not supported in the version 185.18.36. however im currently using 185.18.36 but sometimes like every 30 seconds the screen blinks (becomes black for an instant) thats why i tried to also install the driver which adds support to my model.
from nvnews i found out that the problem might also be that both external vga port and the internal LCD are both on. (my laptop is sony vaio SZ32GP, and i run both win xp and linux mint gloria)
can someone tell me also that how can i switch to LCD only mode. because as i press Fn+F8 (thats the key to switch in win xp) apparently nothing happens.
I have also tried to install the driver from the Hardware Drivers in mint menu but glxgears wont run then.
