Exclamation Frozen X-window with nVidia drivers (SUSE Linux 10.0, GeForce 5200 FX)

I have just installed nVidia drivers for my card GeForce 5200 FX. I have SUSE Linux 10.0.
It seemed to be OK, but after ten minutes, X-window system froze.

I don't know why it does this... On http://www.suse.de/~sndirsch/nvidia-...r-HOWTO.html#3 there is writen that I should use Yast Online Update or follow steps 1 -3. I have tried both ways, but the X-window always freezes.

Does anybody know how can I fix it?

Default Re: Frozen X-window with nVidia drivers (SUSE Linux 10.0, GeForce 5200 FX)

Dunno if this'll fix it but 10.0 default kernel is iffy at best... I also had problems with the FX 5200 - for the "YOU" update make sure you've got the kernel update checked and if the nvidia drivers are already installed - check them to update.
... Oh yeah ... don't do this from inside the xserver. Boot or exit to runlevel 3 - command prompt ... su to root and run yast2
