Default Re: new driver 1.0-6111 for Linux X86 Suse 9

Make sure the kernel module 'nvidia' is loaded before you start X, if you are not certain that it is being auto loaded then boot to text mode only first, then load the module before you start X (either by startx or changing to graphical runlevel). After attempting to boot the machine with the nvidia driver, reboot to runlevel 3 and copy the X log file to somewhere it will not be overwritten.. then you can start X using the nv driver. Come back here and post your X config and the log file attached to this thread.

The warning about rivafb means that your kernel was compiled with support for rivafb, not that you are using it. It is only a warning that using rivafb will not work, so, don't use it and you will be fine.
