Re: 1.0-71.74 & SuSe 9.2 & GF 6800 Go 256MB
Not sure why no expert has replied, but I doubt your problem has anything to do with the nvidia driver. Follow the installation instructions from nvidia. Or use the SuSE update to get a fairly recent nvidia driver installed.
Try modprobe nvidia to make sure you get the driver installed. If you have a configuration working with the nv driver, just edit the xorg.conf to change nv to nvidia. As the nvidia README suggests, start from level 3 and "startx -- -logverbose 5" to see what the driver is up to.
The instructions call for "sax2 -m 0=nvidia" if you want to use sax2.
