Hi Guys,

Installed 256.53 and can't get X-Windows up on OpenSUSE 11.3. 256.44 works fine w/ same setup.

256.53 works fine here on my 11.3 rig. While installing the drivers do you overwrite the old xorg.conf ? How do you install the drivers? Via the run package or over the repository?

I faced the same problem. Solved it by running mkinitrd with root privileges.
It turned out that by default the initrd includes the video driver for KMS, and I had 256.44 in it, so it was loaded instead the installed 256.52.
Try that and see if it works.

I'll try that. Do you mkinitrd after the Nvidia install? Thanks.

What was the syntax you used with that command? Doesn't look like a "depmod -a" type deal.

Just "mkinitrd" by itself got it up and running. Thanks for the tip!
