Can someone help me install the graphic card of the HP Workstation xw4100?

The card info is:

Quadro4 980 XGL/AGP/SSE2
1.5.8 NVIDIA 96.43.20

I'm tried to install the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9639-pkg1.run in init-3 mode. I could not succeed due to an "Cant find kernel source on nvidia driver install" error.

I managed to install the *nvidia_96* & *nvidia_96_updates* (installed but not activated) drivers.

Thx for your help! If you nedd more info, just let me know

Before installing the nvidia drivers, you should first try installing them from System -> Administration -> Additional Drivers

See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/Nvidia for additional details.

If for some reason you feel you need to manually install the driver, you first need to install a few dependencies

sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r`

Then run the Nvidia .run as root.

See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NvidiaManual for additional details.
