Default suse 9 crashes (black screen)

hi,
I'm a linux newbie and i can not speak english very well so i hope you understand me! I downloaded the latest driver from the nvidia website(IA32). I installed it (ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/sup...ler-HOWTO.html) but it didn't work. So I edited my Xfree86config - it's attached but it didn't work - I also downloaded the nvidia drivers via "Online Update" - there was ever a black screen. It seems that the kernel crashes. - My xfree86 log file is attached, too.

I've got an NVIDIA Geforce FX 5200 Ultra, a AMD Athlon 2600+ and SuSE Linux 9 Professional - my hardware doesn't share my irq ports - every hardware has an own irq port.

I hope you can help me!

bye

is this driver only for kernel 2.6 or kernel 2.6 and lower? Because I've got kernel 2.4...

How to install it? Shall I use the SuSE howto? (http://www.sh.nu/download/nvidia/linux-2.4/)

That 5328 driver fixes the lockup issue, yes install it like the how-to says.

Have you got GCC dev installed?, you see the dev packagers contain libs and header files for compiling.

As a rule it best to get or install dev packagers as well.
