hi, Joel.
I think there are several ways to fix it( I do it under Debian):

1. Install mesa driver. it's the old way and always works well.

2. Download the driver from nvidia home,and install it.
It's the easiest way if you aren't familiar with CentOS.


3. Maybe Centos have made the rpm packages for nvidia drivers.
 So search it with "rpm" cmmand, then install it.

Hope help!

Hi folks,

Sorry for the off topic post. I have just got a new whizz bang laptop and I'm wondering whether I have gone too high spec. It is 64 bit LED ASUS ul50v series. I am running linux centos 5.4 but can't get the nvidia driver going (LED screen perhaps) and I just had an initial problem with pymol. (I want to run modeler, sybyl and gold also ) This is not to mention the fact that the kernel doesn't have wireless or Ethernet drivers.

Should I "downgrade" or persist.

Many thanks for comments
