Source rpm did the trick!
First time i restarted the X server it crashed though, but with good reason, something had screwed up the config file, filling it with garbage.
When i copied in my backup and used vim to change the driver and load section it worked!! Nvidia splash screen and everything.

Angry X only works for root

I can only get x to work for root.

I have downloaded the new drivers and installed them. When I run the 3Ddiag program I get Verifying 3D configuration based on XFree86 4 for 3D board
"nVidia Coorporation NV11 (10de@0110)":

Tests for package "NVIDIA_kernel":
package ... done.
package files ... failed!
================================================== ==============
Some file(s) of package NVIDIA_kernel are missing/modified:
..5..... /lib/modules/2.4.18-4GB-SMP/video/NVdriver
..5..... /lib/modules/2.4.18-4GB/video/NVdriver
..5..... /lib/modules/2.4.18-64GB-SMP/video/NVdriver

Consider to reinstall the package NVIDIA_kernel!

I looked at the files and they are there.

I have reinstalled the NVIDIA_kernal a few times and it in not seeming to help.

I don't know what else to do can someone help me?

Default Don't use binary drivers


before any of you try and try to do tricks to get the binary SuSE 8.0 drivers work just download the src.rpm packages.
The binary files are crap.
This is the only serious solution!

i had the same errors on SuSE 8.0 but after i rebuild the driver from source (tar.gz files) it works.

The new NVdriver found at '/lib/modules/2.4.18-4GB/kernel/drivers/video/' has another filesize.

Maybe Nvidia build the binary rpm with the wrong Kernel?

Hey guys, I found this while looking for help.

The procedure differs slightly from the straight install, apparently this is what you are supposed to use in case you have a conflict. And I know, the fix uses 7.3 as an example, it should help with 8.0 anyway, no?

Anyone wanna try and post the conclusions? I don't dare touching my machine, I really don't want to screw it up so I have to reformat.
