    Unhappy GeFORCE 9500M GS and openSUSE 11

    Hello, everybody. I have a laptop ASUS G1 with GeForce 9500M GS. I have installed openSUSE 11 x86_64 and tried to install NVIDIA Driver with YAST software repositories (via 1-click). But after rebooting, X11 doesn't start.
    What should I do to install a driver for my card? I am a newbie to openSUSE. Could anyone give detailed description...
    Thanx un advance.

    The problem is that 1-Click doesn't work in my case. Everything else is written for openSUSE 10.X...

    Hi
    If your not a console login, press ctrl+alt+F2 to get to one and login
    and su to root user. Then enter the commands;

    init 3
    sax2 -r -m 0=nv
    init 5 && exit

    That's a zero not an O in the sax2 command. If nv doesn't work try vesa.

    That should get you a GUI going so you could manually add the
    repositories, else follow the 'HardWay'

    What kind of driver should I use? My processor is core2duo from Intel, OS is 64bit? Linux IA64 or Linux AMD64/EM64T?

    The compilation failed with the following massege:
    "Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'. This happens most frequently when this kernel module was built against the wrong or improperly configured kernel sources, with a version of gcc that differs from the one used to build the target kernel, or if a driver such as rivafb/nvidiafb is present and prevents the NVIDIA kernel module from obtaining ownership of the NVIDIA graphics device(s)."

    Hi
    Should be the EM64T version, sounds like the kernel-source isn't
    installed? If not from the CLI;

    zypper in kernel-source

    I have a kernel-source, installed on my machine. What is "CLI" and "zypper"? And what I should do with them?

    Hi
    CLI is the command line interface (text console screen), zypper is the
    command to run for installing from the CLI. See man zypper :-)

    So do you have a GUI up and running with a vesa or nv driver? Have a
    look in the /etc/X11/xorg file, post the output of;

    cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf |grep Driver

    Is the running kernel the same as the installed kernel source? Post the
    output of;

    zypper search -i kernel

    Hi
    Should be;

    zypper search -i -s kernel

    -i option doesn't show the version information.
