    Did you install both nVidia RPMs via YaST (the only way to go, if you don't want to break it with kernel updates)?

    If so and you don't get the splash screen, I'd say they didn't install correctly.

    I installed through one click when I was following the instructoins to get Compiz/Emerald to work from the openSuse wiki. I thought I was following the instructions. As a noob, is there a command I can input into the terminal to see if it is working or installed right? Thanks for any help.
    Thank you,

    Have a peek in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, under Section "Device". If it says Driver "nvidia" there, you should be ok ("nv" would be the Open Source/non-nVidia driver).

    I haven't used Compiz/Emerald or those instructions myself, so I don't know if that would explain why you're not seeing the splash screen.

    I will take a look at that as soon as I login to that PC later today. If it is not there can I just reinstall through Yast without messing everything up? Thanks for the help.

    Thank you for your help MR2, I think this means all is good from the file you said:

    Section "Device"
    BoardName "GeForce 6600 GT"
    BusID "1:0:0"
    Driver "nvidia"
    Identifier "Device[0]"
    VendorName "NVidia"
    EndSection

    I guess the splash screen just is too fast for me to see
    Thank you,

    Yes it is annoying because it has a sleep(3) in there or so, meaning nothing can start until it switches back to the regular gray X pattern.

    No problem, M13. When you said Compiz, I practically knew it would be in there - don't think that would run without. Just forget about the splash then, I guess.

    If you haven't configured no logo, and you are using the proprietary main Nvidia driver, it always displays on every distro I've tried. The legacy driver might not show it, and the opensource driver probably doesn't show it.

    From a terminal run:

    lsmod | grep nvidia

    That should return a hit with nvidia if the nvidia module loaded.

    That seems to be the case. A few months (years by now?) back I had to explicitly disable it in what is now the legacy 96.x series; as of today I don't find that "Nologo" option in my xorg.conf anymore, which seems to confirm your observation.
    The opensource one does not show it at all because it's probably not written by Nvidia and since there is trademark on the logo whose use is most likely not approved by Nvidia.

    Have the nvidia drivers installed via yast kde 4.1 and working. The nvidia logo at startup flashes for a second, is this ok? I like the logo, good design.
