Default Re: nVidia Driver breaks X Server on SuSE 10.1

Hi Darkhammer81,

you might try:

- do SuSEs online-update to get current kernel and matching kernel sources
- reboot
- download NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8762-pkg1.run
- run as root: ( prepare kernel settings to reflect your current kernel )
Code:
cd /usr/src/linux
make cloneconfig
make modules_prepare
- set runlevel to 3 ( no graphic ) also as root
Code:
init 3
cd "<where you put NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8762-pkg1.run>"
sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8762-pkg1.run
- reboot
- as root ( go to non graphic level again )
Code:
init 3
sax2 -m 0=nvidia
- sax2 should guid you now to a configuration.

Best regards,
