    Default Nvidia-driver for OS11.1

    Hi!
    I just installed OS11.1 and everything seems ok.
    Its missing Nvidia-driver and im wandering if there is a working Nvidia-driver for my laptop:
    Dell Latitude D830
    - Nvidia Quadro NVS 140M

    I add Nvidia-repository, but it seems there is no drivers for OS11.1
    It worked with OS10.3 and OS11.

    Nvidia doesnt have driver on theirs support-web-pages but the have som BETA Drivers from 2007.
    I tried to install the normal Nvidia Driver that shows up in Software Manager, but then it almost crash the computer.

    Now i run on driver "nv".
    Anyone?

    Also this repository for 11.1 nvidia. Once you install the repo, Yast auto selects the RPMs for you.
    HTML Code:
    http://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/11.1/
    You can't browse the repo. You can use the URL in Yast --> Software Repos --> Add URL.

    I installed Nvidia driver "GF6 or newer" and the computer boot up but come with 1024x768.
    Nvidia Configuration doesn not start at all and the computer is extreemly slow.

    I manage to start "nvidia-settings" in CLI and then i could set resolution. Then it works!
    I think Nvidia driver/software is not bugfree, but now it looks good on my screen :-)

    You can browse the repos if you use ftp://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/11.1/
