Red Hat I know what you're thinking, but don't worry. This article isn't 'Yet Another Red Hat 8.0 Review'. This article is primarily about using Red Hat 8.0 if you happen to be a newbie, but it's also about using Red Hat 8.0 if you happen to be a KDE user. Why? I happen to be a KDE user, so it makes sense I'd focus more on what I know the most about. Plus, I still remember the frustration of staring with something akin to terror at a blank command line with lots of ideas about what I'd like to do and very little knowledge of how to do it.

Nvidia driver install....

Excellent article.

Sorry if I missed something or am repeating a previous reply (i've read most, if not all....) but if a new or low time linux user has selected say a Personal Desktop type install for Redhat 8, chances are they never selected any of the development tools for installation. They may not be aware that these are required to build from source as is the case with the Nvidia drivers. I wasn't....... ;-)

Here's to more articles of this quality!!!

thanks
