Default Re: openSuSe 11.1 & NVIDIA 180.22 Driver


After a lot of install/uninstall of the new driver (180.22) with the same driver mismatch version encountered by so many I did exactly like you mention bellow and it finally worked on my OpenSuSE 11.1 x86_64.

(1) start with either 177.82 installed or no driver installed
(2) install 177.82 though the repo (using zypper or YAst2)
(2.5) make sure you "apply" the change in step 2 but you dont need to reboot
(3) uninstall it (using zypper or Yast)
(4) go to init 3
(5) install 180.22 with the installer script
(6) go back to init 5
