Question Trouble with SuSE 8 & NVIDIA latest driver


I am having a problem with running XFree86 & NVIDIA latest drvier. I have the following :

OS : SuSE 8
ARC : 2 Intel 1Gz Processors
MEM : 2 512 MB SDRAMs
Card : Gforce4 MX 440 64MB
XFree : V 4.2.0-107
Uname : Linux linux 2.4.18-64GB-SMP
Nvidia's Driver : 1.0-2960.suse80.i386

/var/log/XFree86.0.log : NVIDIA(0): Failed to allocate LUT context DMA

Yes ...I did read the README file on nvidia.com site....Both gcc versions, the one installed and the one the kernel got compiled with, are at 2.95.3 20010315....

I have tried to install with the src file....didn't work
I hvae tried to install with the tar file....didn't work either

With the original driver that came with the SuSe installation, everything works just fine...(the nv one)....but without 3D support .....

I would appreciate insights, comments, directions, or help...

Um, not very popular, but try online update from YAST2. This worked for me nicely.

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, it uses 7.3 as an example.

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.
