Default NVIDIA x driver not found on Opensuse10.3

Hi,

I am using opensuse10.3 and

Operating system is Linux 2.6.22.5-31-default
X Window System version: 7.2.0
Grafic card is NVIDIA Quadrofx 1600

I tried to use 3D application of my system, for that I installed compiz but it doesn't work then I want it to uninstal using the commends;

init 3

rpm -qa '*compiz*'
rpm -e <package list from the above command>
sax2 -a
gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/compiz
rm -rf /home/.../.config/compiz
init 5

but after that I couldn't reach grafic mode.

when I try init 5 it says that runlevel 5 hasbeen reached but nothing changed.

when I write startx

it says that:

ERROR: Failed to initialize GLX extension
(Compatible NVIDIA X driver not found)


Fatal server error:
no GLX visuals available


WHAT SHOULD I DO TO FIX THIS PROBLEM?

Regards,

Gizem

Default Re: NVIDIA x driver not found on Opensuse10.3

At least I solve it

I want to write the way here for someone else

open the xorg.conf file for editing, run: vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Find the 'Device' section where the graphics card is configured and replace the Driver entry with 'nvidia'. The following shows an example "before and after".


OLD:

Section "Device"
Identifier "GeForce2 Pro/GTS"
Driver "nv"
VideoRam 65536
EndSection

-------------

NEW:

Section "Device"
Identifier "GeForce2 Pro/GTS"
Driver "nvidia"
VideoRam 65536
EndSection
