Default Re: Opensuse 11.3 x64 X server freeze with driver 256.53

No, it is not specific to the 8500GT. I have an acer laptop with a Geforce GT 330M and Opensuse 11.3. I just seem unable to start X with nvidia's drivers. I have uninstalled nouveau, tried the rpm from nvidia's repository and the following two installers:
NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-256.53.run
NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-260.19.06.run

It doesn't matter which one I try, it won't work. I'm just glad the laptop came with two graphic cards, and at least Intel's works. (and yes, i was making sure that nvidia's graphic card was chosen when trying to start X using nvidia's drivers).

Greetings
