Default package conflict

I am brand new to Linux world, only 3 days. I installed SUSE 8.1 on my computer which has Athlon 2.2G, 526M RAM, 120G HD, and Gigabyte 7AXP motherboard. When I opened the Control Center to configure the monitor and video card, it said that the graphic driver comes with SUSE does not have 3D capability. So I used the Online Update feature to auto install the latest nVidia video driver from one of the ftp sites. It seemed to download and installed the driver. When I rebooted and went to the Control Center again, the new driver didn't seem to be installed. So I manually downloaded the RPM files NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-3123.suse81.i586.rpm and NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.suse81.i586.rpm from nVidia and followed the installation instructions. When I ran the RPM in a Bash shell window, Linux complainted that the GLX is in conflict with an earlier pacakage. Could someone tell me what to do so that I can intall the GLX driver? Thanks.

Can you post the exact conflicts ?!?

It's probably just the old drivers from SuSE.
Try to uninstall those and then install the ones you downloaded from NVidia.

That should work

Smile package conflict

Thanks for the reply. I cannot regenerate the error. I used rpm -Uvh NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.suse81.i586.rpm. That method seemed to get the new kernel installed. I think I used rpm -ivh options which caused the conflict. However, I encounter a more severe problem after the new driver is installed. I am going to post the question in another thread. Thanks.

The difference is that -i means install

If you try to install something that already is "installed" you will eventually get an error message.

But by specifying -U you Updates the files thus there is no conflict between to different versions of the file
