Default Re: How to install suse 9.2 64 bit without the driver

Tschortscho
You do not say which card you have, but my GeForce MX4000 also does not have the proper driver included in my SuSE 9.1. My problem was not identical (black screen on login) but it may be solved in the same way.

If you are still having trouble, try selecting a driver for a simliar card - maybe a 2-D one from the SuSE SAX2 menu. I used the GeForce4 4200 Go & I seem to have full functionality - 1600x1200 @ 16million colours.

One complication is that I am running 32bit SuSE 9.1 on an AMD 64. That is because I was not sure how well the 64bit SuSE would be supported.

Had to rename the /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.o to prevent it from causing the black screen & use startx to get in & run SAX2.

I found the 'out-of-range' thing frustrating too. Got there in the end though.

Hope this helps,

Charlie.
