Default Geforce G105M Graphics - opensuse 11.1

Has anyone got to setup NVidia Geforce G105M Graphics Card and C2D - 2 Ghz on a laptop working well with opensuse 11.1 successfully?

I have been trying to configure (done several installs with diff configurations) on opensuse 11.1 and was unable to find suitable linux drivers (from opensuse nvidia downloads), however I tried the following pkgs which i download from nvidia site. Are these the correct ones?

NVIDIA-Linux-x86-180.60-pkg1.run
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-185.18.04-pkg1.run
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-185.18.14-pkg1.run

The main issue is only after building the module/running package ('sh NVIDIA...-pkg1.run -q'), which is I get "6 screens" on the laptop screen, instead of one, (when i restart "sax2 -r -m 0=ndivia")

kindly let me know if there any solution to this or I am missing out some steps ? Any help from your be appriciated.
Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I joined this forum having the exact same problem as you. The only difference is that my laptop is running Fedora 11 on a EasyNote TJ65 Packard Bell laptop. I tried many different drivers but i got the same 6 screens. Please let me know if you find something.
Cheers,
Ionut

Hi

I have an Acer Extensa 5635 with a G105M. I have openSuse 11.2, and I had the 6 screens.

I'm using 190.40 driver. With anything higher I have problems with suspend to ram.

The following from xorg.conf fixed the problem. I don't know if its all needed.

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier     "Default Layout"
    Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
#    InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

EndSection

Hi

I have experimented a little and it seems that the most crucial part is:
Code:
Option "ExactModeTimingsDVI" "True"
and to have:
Code:
 Modeline "1366x768"   69.50  1366 1414 1446 1446  768 771 775 806 -hsync -vsync
