Gefore 7800 gt wont even launch sax2 in SUSE 10.0
 
Alrighty, i don't know what to do.

I just finished building this system but i can't even get the OS to load up properly.

The graphical installer with SuSE 10.0 worked fine and the log-in screen appears to be ok, but as soon as the Gnome desktop attempts to load the screen glitches up and freezes leaving mymouse still working tho.

It sounds like the X freezing problem others have had, but i can't even load Sax2, as that does the same freeze up gitch up bit). The newest nvidia drivers do not fit on a floppy disk to my knowledge, correct?

CPU: Opteron 170
Mother board: epox 9NPA+ SLI(latest bios sept 05)
Video card: EVGA 7800 GT
Ram: 2 gig G SKills ddr500
OS: SUSE 10.0 64bit

This is 1.0.7676 but I think the other drivers are about the same size.
Code:

ls -lh /var/cache/apt-build/nvidia*tar*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root  root    14M 2005-09-07 23:32 nvidia-graphics-drivers_1.0.7676.orig.tar.gz

I'm not too familiar with SUSE, but you should be able to prevent X from starting, or start up something else then Gnome (which tends to use all bells and whistles available).
