Thanks for all of your replies. I did read up the NVIDIA site & looked up the doc specifically for SuSe (http://www.suse.de/~sndirsch/nvidia-...er-HOWTO.html)
. It said the best way to update the driver is to use YAST. But the options mentioned there don't exactly match up with the ones on my system.
To begin with, I tried adding the new server :
YaST -> Software -> installation Source -> Add
Server Name: : download.nvidia.com
Directory on Server: novell
But, not sure what should be user name & password. Did not work with the account I created. I am checking with NVIDIA support as well.
Just for kicks, I did try mplayer -vo xvmc, but it came back with an error saying it could not open the video out device.
How do I check what version of the driver is installed? I did not see anything when I did lsmod, so I guess its part of the kernel?
Sorry to bug you all, but thanks again.
