Exclamation 1.0-71.74 & SuSe 9.2 & GF 6800 Go 256MB

Hi all

I am trying to install the (latest) nvidia driver on my new Dell Inspiron 9300, but it seems that the driver is not supporting the device.

Excerpt from SaX.Log:

...
Server detection data
Card0 => BusId :0x1
Card0 => SlotId : 0x00
Card0 => FuncId 0x0
Card0 => Vendor: NVidia
Card0 => Device : 0x00c8
Card0 => VID : 0x10de
Card0 => DID : 0x00c8
Card0 => Module : nvidia
Card0 => BusType : AGP
Card0 => Detected: 1
Card0 => Flag : DEFAULT
Card0 => SUB-VID : 0x1028
Card0 => SUB-DID : 0x019c
...

some 1000 lines later

...
(--) PCI: *(1:0:0) nVidia Corporation unknown chipset (0x00c8) rev 162 Mem @....

might it be that the driver is just not knowing about the PCI ID of the Dell Card, because I have googled for the problem and others seem to run fine.

any help appriciated
