Default Suse Linux 9.2 & Asus Extreme N6600GT PCI-e

Hi. This is my first post and I have a problem that I'm not able to solve by myself eventhough I reed a lot of threads about nvdia drivers and Suse in this forum.

Here it goes. I install Suse quit normally but when it boots up it hungs when is about to load X and go into KDE. All it appears is a black screen and a mouse pointer (if I move the mouse).

What can be the problem and if it has something to do with de drivers what can I do about it?

Thanks in advance.

Did you read the SUSE instructions before you installed the driver? You know- init 3, make cloneconfig, make prepare-all, sax2 -m 0=nvidia.. All that? Got that kernel source installed? Tell me no stories and I'll tell you no lies.

I don't have the how to because I can't download it from nvidia page. I try to install the driver, it builds the module but then it gives me an error "ERROR: Unable to load 'nvidia.ko'...".

The HOWTO is available from: http://www.suse.de/~sndirsch/nvidia-...ler-HOWTO.html; please attach the complete `nvidia-installer` log file, /var/log/nvidia-installer.log, if you continue to see installation and/or module load problems.

I forgot to say that my card is PCI-E. I've allready done the steps on this HOW-TO and still haven't succeed. I'll post the log. BRB

Your problem is your kernel source version isn't the same as your kernel. You need to upgrade your kernel and kernel-source to the latest with YAST online. Patch and reboot. You can run YAST at command line.

I'll give you the steps in detail, because you seem to be foreign or lost or both.

Get you monitors hoziontal and vertical sync ranges(30-86/50-160 for 17"). Get your monitors horizontal and vertical physical viewable size.(310X230 for a 17"). Read it off the online tech spec manual.

Login as root
Type:

init 3
yast
yast online update
next,next,next,install
reboot, rinse, repeat if necessary

uname -a
ls /usr/src/*
Are your kernels the same? I hope so, cause if not- you're screwed.

login as root
init 3
cd /usr/src/linux
make clone-config
make prepare-all
./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7167-pkg1.run -q --kernel-source-path=/usr/src/linux
yes,yes,install
modprobe nvidia
sax2 -m 0=nvidia
choose the proper monitor type, then resolution, then physical viewable size- and enable 3D. Know your hardware details before you do this.
Save settings.
/sbin/ldconfig

less /etc/X11/XF86Config
Make sure Driver = nvidia, line like so:
Section "Device"
BoardName "GeForce FX 5950 Ultra"
BusID "3:0:0"
Driver "nvidia"
Identifier "Device[0]"
Screen 0
Option "Rotate" "off"
VendorName "NVidia"
EndSection

If it does have it, good. If it has nv, change it to nvidia.

Reboot, and you are done.

Good Luck.

I did what you do but it gives me the same error.

When I do "uname -a" the output is "Linux linux 2.6.8-24.11-smp #1 SMP Fri Jan 14 13:01:36 UTC 2005 i686 i686 i386 GNU Linux"

And when I do "ls /usr/src/*" the output gives me this directories: /usr/src/linux; /usr/src/linux-2.6.8-24; /usr/src/linux-2.6.8-24-11;
/usr/src/linux-2.6.8-24.11-obj; /usr/src/linux-obj; /usr/src/packages.

I've downloaded everything from Yast and all but when I run the nvidia driver installer is says the same error message :S

Thanks for the help.

Do this:

ls -al /usr/src/linux

It should say this: /usr/src/linux -> linux-2.6.8-24.11

If not, then as root

rm -rf /usr/src/linux
ln -s /usr/src/linux-2.6.8-24.11 /usr/src/linux

Let me know how it goes.

Did that the first step and the result was as you described here "/usr/src/linux -> linux-2.6.8-24.11". Tried to install the driver and same error.

Done the other two steps and tried to install and also the same error.

I've had this happen before. The installer sometimes gets confused. What I do, but I can't tell you to do this, is rm -rf all of the old kernel and modules. Like so,

rm -rf /usr/src/linux-2.6.8-24
rm -rf /lib/modules/linux-2.6.8-24

Leave the .11 alone. Just remove the old kernel directories. If this doesn't work, then it may be because it thinks you are using SMP(2 cpus)- which you didn't say. This is confusing me- it thinks you are using an SMP kernel- which as listed- you ain't.


-> Kernel source path: '/lib/modules/2.6.8-24.11-smp/source'
-> Performing CC test with CC="cc".
-> Performing rivafb check.
-> Cleaning kernel module build directory.
executing: 'cd ./usr/src/nv; make clean'...
rm -f -f nv.o nv-vm.o os-agp.o os-interface.o os-registry.o nv.o nv-vm.o os-
agp.o os-interface.o os-registry.o nvidia.mod.o
rm -f -f build-in.o nv-linux.o *.d .*.{cmd,flags}
rm -f -f nvidia.{o,ko,mod.{o,c}} nv_compiler.h *~
rm -f -rf .tmp_versions
-> Building kernel module:
executing: 'cd ./usr/src/nv; make module SYSSRC=/lib/modules/2.6.8-24.11-smp
/source SYSOUT=/lib/modules/2.6.8-24.11-smp/build'...

Do you have 2 cpu's? The installer thinks so. Please repost your nvidia-installer log after you check this.

I only have a CPU (P4 3.2E GHz FSB 800MHz 1MB Cache 540J). I'll try to do this that you said here.
