Unhappy SuSE driver install problems

Dunno what I did wrong but I definatly did something bad!

I installed the drivers and everything went through fine, I then went an edited the XF86Config file (I dont have XF86Config-4) and changed

Driver "nv"
Driver "nvidia"

saved and restarted. the computer now brings up a black screen whenever I try to launch X and nothing else happens.

I also tried the Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" but that didnt help either.

Any ideas guys?

Send a message via ICQ to blackrainbow


just set Option "NvAgp" "0" in your XF86Config, this should work, but it is slow, because it's disabling agp.

I also had this poroblem. However, both "NvAgp" "0" (off) and "1" (wich I presume forces it on) works. Removing the Option "NvAgp" line gets me a black screen again.
