Question SuSE 10.2/6800GT Problem

Hi !

I have just assembled new PC with Intel Core2 Duo, Gigabyte m/b,
Intel P35 Chipset, and Asus 8600GT/512MB PCIe video card.

Software: SuSE 10.2 (32-bit) with latest kernel update (2.6.18.05), latest nvidia driver (100.10.14) from its web site installed manually ("modprobe nvidia" works)

However, neither "sax2" (sax2-8.1-83.2) neither "sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia" do not work as expected - sax2 ALWAYS switch to framebuffer mode.

I have replaced video card with MSI 8600GT, installed it into another
PCIe slot, problem still exists.

Strange enogh, since lspci DOES lists this video card. Additionally,
Windoze works on this PC.

Thanks in advance for any suggestion(s)

Here is system info & logs:

--------------------------------------------

lspci:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Unknown device 0402 (rev a1)
03:00.0 SATA controller: JMicron Technologies, Inc. JMicron 20360/20363 AHCI Controller (rev 02)

--------------------------------------------

sax2 -p (seems like problem with detection)
SaX: root Chip: 0 is -> VESA Framebuffer Graphics 01:00:0 0x10de 0x0402 AGP fbdev

I read sticky post, and I have included /var/log/nvdia-installer.log. nvidia-bug-report do not needed, since this is NOT nvidia driver bug, its a problem with detection by SuSE sax. I am just looking for workaround of software glitch.

If you feel that this is a SUSE bug, then you should report it to SUSE.

Maybe it is a bug in sax2 detection software. My 7600GT is detected correctly, but it's an agp card. Try to set up card with ordinary nv driver:
#sax2
then edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf and change Driver "nv" line to Driver "nvidia". If this doesn't help, then updating Xorg might do the trick. If you already updated whole system, than you might want to go furter by updating xorg to 7.3-devel. I can assure you it is pretty stable (using it myself), repo is located here:
