1.0-6111 Installer Freezes on SuSE 9.1
I tried using the new nVidia installer last night and again this morning, but the installer keeps freezing at the end of the build process. The progress bar goes all the way to 100%, the word 'done.' appears and that's it. I can't get out of it. I have to shut off the computer and reboot to get back into the command prompt. The last driver I had installed without a hitch.

I've tried running sax2 anyway to see if it works, but I can't enable 3D. The nVidia logo doesn't show up on startup anymore either and I can't run any OpenGL screensavers or games now.

Has anyone else had this problem? Or better yet, can anyone tell me how to fix this? I'm running SuSE 9.1 personal.

If sax2 doesn't enable 3D acceleration anfer selecting your card in the card properties menu, then edit /etc/X11/XFConfig

find the line that says driver "nv"
and change "nv" to "nvidia"
save and restart Xserver.

That is the extent of my knowledge for now.

I'm not sure what I did, but I got the installer to finish correctly. I didn't do anything differently, it just didn't freeze the last time. It only took me 5 tries for it to work! Now 3D works again and things run a little faster.
