I am also having trouble. When i start X an NVidia splash screen appears, then dissapears, but when the graphical login appears the graphics are screwed up and the computer completely locks up. The mouse wont even move. There are no errors listed in the log file, which i have attached.
3Ddiag doesn't find any problems.
I have an althon 800 with a Leadtek Winfast GeForce 2 MX
Any help appreciated.

Hey I have Suse 8.0, and when i load the Nvidia drivers X won't load up, it flashes a few times and just stays a black screen ! How annoying. If i use the default crummy drivers with suse it will work fine but i want nvidias.. does anybody know how to fix their blank screen problem ?

I am running SuSE8.0 and added a MX420 to a motherboard with onboard video. I ran Sax2 and it started Yast2 to online update the drivers. It seemed to run OK but it locks up, no keyboard-no mouse, which it never did before.

I just finally got these drivers to work with SuSE8.0 What I eventually had to do was downloaded the NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2960.src.rpm file, rpm --rebuild that file, then it will print out a bunch of stuff, and create a new kernel rpm file for you. Look for a line that says Wrote - blah blah and it'll tell you where it put it. Then rpm -ivh that newly created kernel rpm file. If that all works out, then all you need is to install the regular NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-2960.suse80.i386.rpm file and install that next. Then edit the XF86config file just like it says to do. For me, I also had to add an option to the config to get mine to work.

Option "IgnoreEDID" "true"

It took me forever, basically the only problems were that I needed to install the source kernel file, instead of the stock one for SuSE8.0, and I needed to add the IgnoreEDID option. After that it ran perfect. Here's my config file too...

Question

My problems were also solved when I did a --rebuild to the source RPM of the kernel. After that I just followed the standard procedure and everything works fine now. Well, almost

Every time I start a 3D-game or app, it says that I don't have any 3D hardware configured. However, when I close the notification, the game/app starts normally, with 3D support. Do you know what I have to change to get rid of those messages? I have the 3D acceleration-box checked in display settings in YaST

Thumbs up Works great......

Wanted to say thanks to all who have given very valuable information, LaoTzuTao, and those who gave the tip about recompiling the src.rpm kernel driver.

It works great for me now. I had ALL the same problems listed in this thread, luckely nVidia gave a URL to here for me to browse, that was very cool.

Also just wanted to say i'm using :
SuSE 8.0
GeForce 2 MX 500
XFree86 4.2.0

And using "rpm --rebuild <NIVIDIA_kernel.src.rpm>"
installing that RPM it leaves, then the GLX rpm works great with : 1.0-3132 build(s).

Just changed my XF86Config to include "glx", removed "dri" , and used the "nvidia" driver , and i've tested Quake3Arena and it plays VERY nice.

Have a good one all :O)

Everything worked fine when I rebuilded sources myself and the upgraded them. But before that I needed to install Deveploment Kit to make the compilation work.

Angry Probs with SUSE 7.3

I've had the Probs with Suse 7.3 -- Only it gave me a blank screen before it was finished with the intallation.

I changed to Mandrake 8.2 -- No Probs anymore. (Mandrake 8.2 is as easy as Winows XP)
