Exclamation GeForce 8600 GT OC in SUSE 10 SP1

Good morning,

I've got an AMD64 system with the noted card from BFG. I have followed the instructions on the NVIDIA web site and the install (using YAST2) SEEMS to have gone well, but in SaX2 the card is binned as VESA Framebuffer Graphics, and I have only one workable configuration, nothing like the rich performance I should get with this card. I am trying to run NX5 (CAD system) and am getting complaints about the graphics...

Anyone got experience with this set up?
I will attach my log file below for you savvy types...

Rick

According to your bug report, xorg.conf is specifying the fbdev driver, not the nvidia driver. I'm not clear which instructions you followed, however the driver README explains what needs to be done to use the NVIDIA driver.

Running nvidia-xconfig as root might be sufficient.

Thanks for the prompt reply!

well, OK, I ran the script, and got some screen feedback:


engfor21:~ # nvidia-xconfig

Using X configuration file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf".
Backed up file '/etc/X11/xorg.conf' as '/etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup'
New X configuration file written to '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'

HOWEVER, it still seems to behave the same way...

the instructions were those on the NVIDIA web site for SUSE users 10.1.

Thanks again,

Rick

You'll need to post a new bug report if you need further assistance.
