Default suse 9 for amd64 and nvidia

my mobo k8v and gfx 5900xt. do the drivers from nvidia work? if so, how can i get them to work on my system?

i'm cracking up, just replaced my ati 9800xt because there was no 64-bit support only to discover that nvidia's doesn't seem to work!!!!

also if i were to try mandrake 10CE (non64) which version of the nvidia driver would i use IA32 or AMD64 again?

please someone help me, i'm only a stupid newbie trying deperately to get away from using windows. if i can get my system up and running i.e. 3d acceleration, dvd playback etc then microsoft can burn in hell cause they ain't gonna get another penny from me

The 64 bit drivers do work, tho I am staying 32 until nVidia AMD64 drivers also support 32 bit open-gl games. Use IA32 drivers for non-64 O/Ss.

My SuSE 9.0 x86-64 attempt failed with X running at 99.9% CPU and a blank screen, and I eventually gave up. 9.1 will be out soon (any time now), which I will then try. FC1 and FC2-test3 for x86-64 do work with the NVIDIA driver.

do you know if the dvd that came with suse 9 for amd64 has/or can be adapted so that it is just a plain vanilla 32bit version?

I highly doubt that, but you can always install from ftp (bandwidth permitting) if you lack the DVD. Be aware though that current NVIDIA drivers for 32-bit fail with some AMD64 processors. For more info on this check this thread: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=26575

What exactly do you mean by "doesn't seem to work" ? What does the NVIDIA 1.0-5332 driver do on your hardware? Are you sure you have configured XF86Config correctly?

The 1.0-5332 2.4 and minion.de 2.6 drivers from NVIDIA work with my hardware, but far from perfectly, in the sense that I occasionally get a complete lockup in X11. Right now, stability is more important to me than 3D, so I'm sticking with the XFree86 drivers, which work well enough in 2D except for occasional flickering and glitches.

I'm running SUSE 9.0 alternating between kernels 2.4.21-209 and 2.6.5-8.5, with XFree86-4.3.0.1-52.

Hardware is:
AMD Athlon 64 3200+,
GigaByte GA-K8NNXP with NVIDIA nForce3 150 chipset using AGP 3.0,
MSI FX5700-TD128 AGP card using NVIDIA GeForce FX 5700,
Mitsubishi DV172.

They only work under very specific circumstances(you cannot use SMP, you cannot use AGPGART, you cannot use APIC, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc) Performance is also bad and unreliable, and lockups frequent.

Andy said you had to use kernel AGPGART with the current AMD64 drivers - or did I hear wrong? I haven't had lockups. As for APIC:

ACPI: Local APIC address 0x00000000fee00000
ACPI: LAPIC (acpi_id[0x00] lapic_id[0x00] enabled)
Processor #0 15:4 APIC version 16
ACPI: LAPIC_NMI (acpi_id[0x00] polarity[0x0] trigger[0x0] lint[0x1])
ACPI: Skipping IOAPIC probe due to 'noapic' option.
Using ACPI for processor (LAPIC) configuration information
Intel MultiProcessor Specification v1.4
Virtual Wire compatibility mode.
OEM ID: OEM00000 <6>Product ID: PROD00000000 <6>APIC at: 0xFEE00000
I/O APIC #2 Version 17 at 0xFEC00000.
