Hi Phildo,

You can open it with text editor. On command line you can open text files with text editors, like nano, vi, emacs etc. and on desktop environment you can use example, gedit, kwrite, kate etc.

Download latest Nvidia unix driver from their website, make it executable

Disable nouveau in grub.cfg by appending the following to boot line:

rdblacklist=nouveau nouveau.modeset=0

Switch to runlevel 3 (telinit 3)

Install gcc and kernel-devel:

yum isntall gcc kernel-devel-$(uname-r)

Run nvidia installer.

Reboot

Job done
