Default 180.22 and 8400GS

Pentium 4 / openSUSE 11.1 / GNOME/ new 8400GS card

1st - Booted into GNOME with the new card installed but the monitor still on the onboard video. The new card showed up in the YaST hardware information list.

2nd - Changed the BIOS and rebooted with the monitor on the new card and Linux boots to the command line and hangs at the login prompt.

3rd - Switched back to onboard video and downloaded a 180.22 driver from nvidia.com. Ran the driver from the command line after switching to "init 3". The driver starts and wants an internet connection. How do I start a connection from the command line?


Thanks

I'd try one of the rpms under
<ftp://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/11.1/i586/>

You need to install kernel-source and gcc if you want to compile the driver.

Or as suggested use the RPM from:
<ftp://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/11.1/i586/>

Default Re: 180.22 and 8400GS

Hi,
After installing the nvidia-glx package (180.22) on Ubuntu 9.04 my boot time increased and the screen shows the nvidia logo for 2 minutes.
Dmesg shows this new line:
[ 95.557070] Clocksource tsc unstable (delta = 4682796731 ns)

I also tried changing my 8400 gs with a 8600 but the system doesn't boot (nvidia logo flickering and system stucked). Booting with ubuntu nv driver is fine.

On Ubuntu 8.10 i haven't any issue with 180.11 (glx) package but 180.22 drivers from nvidia site doesn't work.

What can i do to investigate the problem and submit all the needed logs to nvidia or to ubuntu dev team?
