Default OpenSuse 10.3 installatin failed

Hello all!

I recently bought a NVIDIA Geforce 7300 GT card and would like to use it for Opensuse 10.3. I found a driver at and tried to follow the "Nvidia Installer HOWTO for SUSE LINUX users" documentation. Unfortunately I didn't work.

Maybe I provide you some more details. As I have an three year old celeron I used the description for openSUSE 10.3-IA.32 and perfromed the following steps:

1. I added the NVIDA server to the repositories.
2. I selected and installed the x11-video-nvidiaG01 package.

After this I'm not sure how to proceed. In SaX2 I get the information that my card is the "VESA Framebuffer Graphic". I don't know whether I can change anything. Furthermore I started the system in Runlevel mode 3 and tried to start the installer directly but unfortunately the sh command couldn't find the installer file.

Does anyone know what's my fault? I'm quite sure that it shouldn't be a big problem to install the driver.

Thank you in advance for your feedback.
