EN7950GT Driver Problem: Redirected to nVNews
I have had some problems with my nVidia EN7950GT Graphics Card and getting the driver to work. I have got openSUSE 10.2 installed

I have spent some time on another Linux Forum, http://forums.suselinuxsupport.de, but the moderator there couldn't help me and redirected me to you. The thread I used there can be found here: http://forums.suselinuxsupport.de/in...ic=51059&st=0#

and starts at post number 14.

To recap what I have tried so far:

1st I tried the easy way

But i didn't work, then it got a bit more technical and tried what the moderator from the other forum told me:

1) boot to runlevel 3 (or failsafe from boot menu )
2)log in as normal then su to root,then cd to where you downloaded the drivers
( in your case it would be cd /home/RST_SUSE/Desktop )
3) type sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-xxxx-pkg1.run ( where xxxx is the driver version) & press enter
4) accept licence agreement
5) it won't find kernel modules & asks to connect press yes
6) can't find suitable will compile it's own ok
7) installs driver
8) gives a load of blurb at end
9) returns to prompt
10)type sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia
11) sax does it's stuff
12) accept
13) back to prompt
14)at the prompt type reboot & press enter
15) log in as normal
But that gave me a problem when i reach number 10 and ran sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia, it returned this message:


xc: Sorry could not start the configuration server

xc: for details refer to the log file:


xc: abort...
Then i tried to reboot and when i tried to boot Linux i got this message:
When i run sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia, it runs for a bit and then returns this message:

I couldn't run startx and therefor ran sax2 -m 0=vesa and cliked OK to the setting and then i could startx.

Then i tried to run the installation of the driver again This time I said yes in the end to run the nvidia-xconfig utility to automatically update my X configuration file so that NVIDIA X driver will be used when you restart X, and that any preexisting X Configuration files will be backed up...

So that i didn't have to runsax2 -r -m 0=nvidia.

But when i rebooted i git this message:

Skipped services in runlevel 5:

Then the moderator said:

try an older driver from the archives, failing that, i think you need to consult the nvidia forums http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/foru......&forumid=14 as it appears beyond my scope of knowledge to get this working

i tried to use an older driver (version 9631) and it didn't help I got the message about the log file. The Sax log file my log file can be found here if that any help:
so here I am... Can anybody help its nightmare to scroll and move windows around without the drives installed.

According to your first screenshot you don't have the power connector plugged into the graphics card. Did you verify whether this was the case?
