Question Quadro2 Pro installation - OpenSuse 11.2


I like to install the official NVIDIA driver for a Quadro2 Pro, on the OpenSuse 11.2 OS. 32 bit.

The driver I downloaded from is confirmed to be the correct one:

When OpenSuse 11.2 is installed, it detects the graphics card and install the 'nv' driver by default (nouveau).

The procedure I follow to make the installation is the same you'll find on other forums:

chmod +x

init 3

sh -q

sax2 -r -m 0=NVIDIA

init 5


Compilation and installation (sh -q) are reported to be succesful, but the last command (sax2 -r -m 0=NVIDIA) reports it can't find an X system.
Returning to the desktop (init 5) the 'nv' driver is still active.

Others sugesteed 'blacklisting' nouveau byt putting the line:

blacklist nouveau

On the file /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf

I did and reset, then retry the full installation, same results.

At the end of the SaX.log are these lines:

(II) LoadModule: "nvidia"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules//drivers/
dlopen: /usr/lib/xorg/modules//drivers/ undefined symbol: AllocateScreenPrivateIndex
(EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules//drivers/
(II) UnloadModule: "nvidia"
(EE) Failed to load module "nvidia" (loader failed, 7)
(EE) No drivers available.

Fatal server error:
no screens found

Any help ?
