after this, use YOU (Yast Online Update) to update you system..
Maybe you should reboot now, to start using the new kernel.
Start nvidia installer the way you did before - It will work this time.
When it's over, run sax2 -m 0=nvidia
Then type init 5 to return to kde desktop
andyrock i have no idea which one is the kernel source could you walk me through in simpler terms. sorry to be a bother but I have no idea how to install kernals or rpms. and i downloaded an rpm from nvidia but i have no idea how to install it.
thanks in advance
