nvidia driver "404 error"

Postby Gort » Sun Nov 02, 2008 1:36 pm

Hi All

My first post!! I just installed mint and I tried to enable the drivers for my video card. I got the follow error:

W: Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/ ... 1_i386.deb
404 Not Found

Is there a way for my to download from somewhere else?

Thanks
Kev

Run apt update in terminal and try again.

Thanks

I think that will do it, though I am going through a long initial update. While waiting, I found EnvyNG. If you don't mind, could you tell me the difference between installing Nvidia drivers through EnvyNG and the regular restricted driver tool?

Just an update. "apt update" solved the issue.

Thanks
