What drivers?


For NVidia, you should first install the ELRepo repository. See
https://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResou ... positories and http://elrepo.org/tiki/tiki-index.php

Code: Select all

sudo yum install https://www.elrepo.org/elrepo-release-7.0-4.el7.elrepo.noarch.rpm
Then, install utility to check which version of the Nvidia driver you have to use:

Code: Select all

sudo yum install nvidia-detect
See http://elrepo.org/tiki/nvidia-detect

Most drivers comes with linux, so unless you have a
problem, there should be no need to install anything.

No computer manufacturer supplies drivers for linux on laptops, well not standard general purpose ones anyway. You either get a driver for your hardware with your linux distro or you find a third party who supplies one for you (like ELRepo) or you build it yourself (not recommended on CentOS).
