SusE 8.2 and mx440
Hello all,
Still can't get the source code to compile on suse 82.. Had no trouble on 8.1 with same machine.
It is a AMD athlon 1.3 with a Geforce MX440 card.
has anyone got this to work on a similar machine?
Maybe I'm using the wrong drivers? What should I be downloading?

You should have downloaded the 4363 driver which gives you one file: NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4363.run

As user root execute that file and follow the instructions it displays:

# sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4363.run

This worked for me, but some others reported that the installer was trying to use the standard kernel module instead of the athlon kernel module. If this happens to you try:

# sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4363.run --kernel-name=2.4.20-4GB-athlon

In this case you must have the kernel-source module from the SuSE 8.2 distribution installed.
