Default Re: Installing nvidia driver in opensuse 11.0.

Switch to a console (Ctrl-Alt-1).

As root, "init 3" which will shut down the X server. You can also use "rcxdm stop", I suppose.

Once the driver is installed, "init 5" should restart the X server and bring you to the login screen (or "rcxdm restart").

Hope this helps...
