Ubuntu 7.04 & Geforce 7600GT installation help

Hi guys,
I'm linuxing agian .....
Last night, I felt lucky and curious so I did a distribution upgrade from 6.10 to Feisty. All went well but easyUbuntu could no longer install my geforce card for me. Without that, blender will start but crash after about a minute or so.

Question: How would I install a Geforce 7600 GT card without easyUbuntu?

I can't wait to blender 100% in Linux

Thanks for helping!

P.S. I run openSuse but the menu is driving me crazy. To my joy, Ubuntu Feisty does NOT move the desktop when I press Alt + MMB (old habits die hard!)

this is more of a question to the ubuntu forums than blender section on cgtalk.. so maybe try there, also i suggest you read the FAQ and wiki on the ubuntu site. if nothing else helps, you can always just follow the README information that you can download with the driver straight from the nvidia site.

How about downloading nVidia drivers from their site and installing it after reading their installation instructions?
