    Unhappy Problems with the new NVIDIA drivers 1 Click Install

    Using den 1. Click Installation for the NVDIA (non legacy) drivers for Opensuse 11.00 does noch work properly.

    I think that it installs the wrong drivers (the legacy drivers being installed after the 1 Click installation, with the wrong dependecies).

    But I'm not quite shure which packages really are the proper ones. Anyways: the one klick installation leads to problems

    I recommend removing the old drivers in Yast.

    Go here & get the beta driver (it works best for me with 11.0O: NVIDIA Driver Downloads - Advanced Search
    fetch the NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-177.13-pkg2.run

    Howto @ Nvidia Installer HOWTO for SUSE LINUX users

    remove the old drivers in Yast
    Open a terminal; login as root; do "init 3" which will put you in runlevel 3
    login as root
    cd /tothefolderwith NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-177.13-pkg2.run
    sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-173.14.09-pkg2.run -q

    When that's done:
    Configure X.Org with

    sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia (0 is a digit, not a letter!)

    (NOTE: There is no need to try to enable 3D support. It's already
    enabled, when the nvidia driver is running.)

    Do the configure for your setup & TEST; always TEST & when it's like you want; save.

    type "reboot"

    and you should be good to go

    Hey Snakedriver,
    Don't mean to hijack, but seems appropiate, considering my small problem.

    Here goes...
    [openSUSE 10.3 64bit on Dell M1330 Laptop with GeoForce 8400M GS] using the Install NVIDIA via 1-click,
    and following all instructions, my system upon next boot could not load X and stayed in text mode till I deleted the partitions and reinstalled 10.3 again.

    Question: What do I have to do for a proper NVIDIA install. Just follow what you put above with 10.3 understanding?

    Thanks for your help.
    I don't wish to go through this delete partition all over again.

    The 7300 shouldn't be using the legacy drivers.

    Should be using the normal drivers.

    Hi
    Have a read here, Nvidia no
    need to re-install your system, if it borks and you want a gui login,
    then as root user;

    Code:
    init 3
    sax2 -r -m 0=nv
    init 5 && exit
    This will use the default nvidia driver, if that doesn't work use vesa
    instead. Also note the "0" is a zero.

    Thanks Malcolm Lewis,
    I tried again and received the error FATAL: Module nvidia not found

    I am not sure what is not correct here.
    The x11-video-nvidiaG01 is downloaded and installed.
    I wonder if there is another dependency missing?

    Hi
    On the nvidia page, follow the hard way. That is the one installed from
    the repository. I've never used them, because they have never seemed to
    work well for me on either this machine or my AMD 4400+ which has the
    EN8600GTS when i tried out openSUSE 11 on it.

    Thanks Malcolm Lewis,

    Prerequisites
    : used Yast to download these...
    compiler gcc
    program make &
    package kernel-source

    I downloaded the NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-172.14.12-pkg2.run to desktop.

    I went into terminal, became root, and typed
    Code:
     # init 3
     # cd Desktop
     # sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-172.14.12-pkg2.run -q
    followed instructions during install

    then to configure X.org
    Code:
    sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia
    on return to X configured Sax with proper resolution and screen size.

    All is well,
    Blessings,
    Chetanji

    Hi
    Good to here all is well. Just a couple of notes though, after you have
    finished the config with sax2, use the following;

    Code:
    init 5 && exit
    This will restart X and exit the root shell, just in case you forget to
    logout

    Now, for updating the driver it is even easier (assuming the network
    is running and connected to the internet), alt+ctrl+F2 to get to a
    console login and login as root user;

    Code:
    init 3
    nvidia-installer --update
    init 5 && exit
