  1. #1

    Question Can someone help me install the GTX295 Co-op

    Using latest drivers from nvidia site and G02 one click..
    Using default and various installaion commands like
    sh ./NVIDIAblahblah.run
    Standard and then these
    --x module-path=usr/lib64/Xorg/modules/ -q
    -K

    Startx
    gives me an error
    Failed to load NVIDIA-module specific error, 0

    modprobe -r nvidia
    says
    FATAL: Module nvidia not found

    This is a Dual GPU card
    so it has /dev/nvidia0 and /dev/nvidia1

    should that meant it needs to be installed different or twice?
    (windows detects as 2 x 295GTX)

    And now sax2 always uses vesa so please someone help me..??
    sax -r -m 0=nvidia


    I'm confused... Help Anyone?

    The oneclick installer starts Yast to install the driver. You are also quoting manual commands for the installer you might download from nvidia.

    This may help to install the easy way: Some NVIDIA Basics - openSUSE Forums
    ----------------------------------------------------------


    But if you actually want manual driver instructions:

    Alright so here is how to install the nvidia driver manually, in case the one in the repo doesn't work or u just want to use the latest.
    Go to Yast>Software>Software Management
    Search for and install if you don't have these:

    make
    gcc
    kernel-source

    Now download the latest Nvidia driver:
    Place the file in your /home/username

    Now restart and at the boot screen, pause the boot by moving the down button, then move back up and clear any text in the boot arguments by holding backspace. Then just type the number: 3

    At the login
    Type "root" then enter and then your root password and press enter.
    now type
    cd /home/username
    *Now remember you can use the {TAB} key to auto complete

    so type:
    sh NVIDIA{TAB}
    and the whole file name should auto complete
    eg: sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.09-pkg1.run
    Follow the installer and let it compile the kernel module for you.
    Say Yes to everything
    Use TAB to move around
    reboot

    is this still an issue with the gtx295 as i have followed the repo and the one-click route yet vesa is still the only recognised format.

    the card (gtx295) works in debian.

    This should work fine. If your driver is installed you will still need to go to:
    Yast - Hardware - Graphics and Monitor
    Set your monitor up with resolution in there
    For LCD screens most use the generic -->LCD + resolution
    Check enable 3D

    AFAIK your card is too new for the official driver. Please download the latest 190.32 version from:
    32bit: ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Li...90.32-pkg1.run
    64bit: ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Li...90.32-pkg2.run

    After downloading you can follow the "Installing NVIDIA the hard way" procedure. Just search the forum and you'll find numerous post with instructions
    - Athlon X6 3.6 GHz, 16 GB DDR3, 64 GB SSD, 3 TB of disks, GT540, openSUSE Factory + KDE
    - ASUS A73SD, Intel + GT610M Optimus, 6 GB, 2 x 120 GB SSD, openSUSE Factory + KDE

    Anything that can go wrong.... will teach us

    The problem I think has to do with a kernel version mismatch between the nvidia driver and the kerbel versions available (I use a local mirror for the Main repos).

    I downloaded the latest 185 driver from the nVidia site and installed via the terminal and the nvidia driver is working.
