Thanks, Tuxracer runs perfectly in the Window Mode!

Ahm, and again what about the patches in your first reply? How are they used and should I?

Hmm, well the patch is only necessary if you want to stay with 6629 and can't live without the Software-Cursor, or XV...
but you should first check YOU(YaST Online Update), Suse might have already patched and tested packages...

if they don't have them, or if you really want to try it... here's a quick & dirty HowTo rebuild X.org ... But be warned, the build process lasts some hours, also you "must" have a boardband connection (X.org source is ~40 MB + some MBs for dev-Tools ) and of course you might **** ** X...

Ok, will try 7167 as soon as i have some time...

The patch seems to be nothing for me... (It's worse - I dont even have Internet in Linux, as I have ab troublemaking USB-Modem - manufacturer ignores Linux - but thats another story in another Forum..... Murphy seems to be after me)

I think you just install 7167 drivers as per Suse instructions:

In run level 3 in a root shell

sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-7167-pkg2.run -q

3) Configure XFree86 with

sax2 -m 0=nvidia (0 is a digit, not a letter!)

After that


Then apply the patch:

# sh /path/to/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-7167-pkg2.run --extract-only
# cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-7167-pkg2
# patch -p0 < /path/to/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-7167-03.11.2005.diff.txt
# modprobe -q agpgart <-- on Linux 2.6, only!
# ./nvidia-installer

Don't know if you need to be in run level 3 or not on the patch install. The instructions don't mention running SAX2 either after patch install.

Is this correct?

I think your first Install the patch:

# sh /path/to/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-7167-pkg2.run --extract-only
# cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-7167-pkg2
# patch -p0 </path/to/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-7167-03.11.2005.diff.txt
# modprobe -q agpgart <-- on Linux 2.6, only!
# ./nvidia-installer

And as I mentionend:
# modprobe nvidia
was absolutely necessary to me!

The line
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-7167-pkg2.run -q
is not necessary, because after the above lines, you already installed the patched version of the nvidia driver?!
