Installing (or re-installing) NVidia drivers for the NVidia Quadro 600 graphic card on SLC6 (RHEL 6)

This is basically a note for myself, to install or re-install the Nvidia drivers for the Quadro 600 graphics card on my SLC6 (RHEL 6) machine.

NVidia Quadro 600 Graphics card: http://www.nvidia.com/object/product-quadro-600-us.html


Open a terminal in your SLC6 machine, and paste the copied link to wget to download the driver installer; then, run the installer:

wget http://www.nvidia.com/content/DriverDownload-March2009/confirmation.php?url=/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/390.59/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-390.59.run&lang=us&type=TITAN
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-390.59.run

The installer will download and install the drivers, then it will ask you if you want to install 32 bits libraries as well, and then it will ask you if you want the X configuration updated. Usually, I answer YES to all these questions.

Now, you can reboot the machine:

reboot NOW

DONE! Drivers installed, enjoy your graphics card! :)
