apt-key add with yum and .exe install

Post by dgutierrez » 2019/12/18 21:28:30

Hello,


What is the equivalent of sudo apt-key add with yum? I want to install nvidia autoupdate geforce software (https://www.geforce.com/drivers )
which is an .exe file. It looks like I need this wine key.

wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/winehq.key
sudo apt-key add winehq.key

Best,
Dominique

You're trying to install a Windows executable kernel driver on a linux system?

Just doing some poking around, there is no Geforce Experience that Nvidia releases for linux. So you're going to need to do some fiddling and investigation to figure out whether you can run that on linux.

I really doubt if it's of any use at all. It appears to be entirely windows-centric and is designed to tell you when new Windows drivers are available. Since linux doesn't use windows drivers (and nor does wine), this is likely to be a complete waste of time.
