Thread: nvidia drivers for opensuse 11.0

  1. #1

    Default nvidia drivers for opensuse 11.0

    when can we expect nvidia drivers for opensuse 11.0. I am stuck with VESA and its spoiling the desktop experience.

    I followed the one-click installer for 10.3, and it worked. I booted into the new kernel, and bam! Nvidia and Compiz-fusion goodness.

    Mind you, that installs an older 2.6.22 kernel, but it is worth it. Hopefully we'll get a nice newer kernel package with Nvidia drivers for 11.0 at launch.

    I manually installed the OEM NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-173.14.05-pkg2.run
    works for me in rc1

    I bet the drivers' link will be in Database error - openSUSE as soon as GM hits the street. Nvidia is good about that

    I tried running the manual install driver from the Nvidia website but it kept telling me I didn't have the required packages (gcc and make) even though the package management had them listed as installed. Hope they have a repo driver available soon.

    Go into Yast > Patterns & select C/C++ & Kernel development

    Then check to see if you have kernel-source & kernel-syms that match your running kernel "uname -a).

    You need those to do serious compiling.

    Should work

    Has anyone managed to get that driver working with the desktop effects? (Compiz etc)

    I did a build of the NVIDIA driver as mentioned above, but when I click to enable the desktop effects, the screen flashes, but I don't get any wobbly windows.

    I know I can install nvidia driver manually, but then it has to recompiled everytime there is a kernel update. Waiting for the repo driver.

    I've got them with KDE 4.1, if that helps.

    I have yet to hear of anyone having any success with compiling Nvidia's legacy drivers.
