nvidia driver problem on suse 9
 
hi,

i've just installed the newest version of the nvidia driver (1.0-5332) for my Geforce 4 ti4400.

i went to runlevel 3, executed the shell script (after i've installed and updated the kernel source) and went through the installation fine.

when i tried to run sax -m 0=nvidia the screen turns black and stays that way. i can run this command using kde, though.

my XF86Config tells me that the right driver is installed (see below):

i don't have 3d Acceleration though. Games run really crappy and with gfxgears i get like 5fps, where i usually get 300. how can i activate opengl support (it won't let me activate it in sax2).

3Ddiag gives me a false for nvidia (verifying driver installation) (see below):

please help!

Use THESES instead, should sort the problem.

problem solved... i don't really know what was wrong. i uninstalled them, re-downloaded the driver from the nvidia page and followed the instuctions most carefully, step by step. it works now and hell of a lot faster than before.
