Default SUSE 10.1 and Geforce FX5200

Hi,

I am very new to linux. I finally got the latest nvidia driver installed, but when i ran sax2 it said error in line 619. So, I read you could edit xorg.conf without running sax2. I opened xorg.cong in kate with root access and changed the space that said

Driver: "Change Me" to Driver: "nvidia"

Now, it boots fine, but when logging into a user, the screen goes black, and it kicks me back to the login screen. Anybody know what to do? Thanks for all the help?

What runlevel are you in? When you get to the login screen, is it graphical or text-based? If it's graphical, then it shouldn't be a problem w/drivers, as graphical login should use the same xorg.conf (I think? I'm a RL3 guy), hence, same drivers. So, might be a problem with user login scripts or something, if that's the case.
