Thread: nvidia graphic driver 9200m

    Default nvidia graphic driver 9200m

    hi i tried to install the nvidia driver to my friends notebook several times in vain. i used the *02 packages from nvidia repository which are supposed to work with the 9200m. the driver was installed but x would not start. sax2 did not find a device to configure with then nvidia driver.

    then i downloaded the driver from the nvidia hp. i installed it 3 times but still it did not work. then i installed it a 4th time and suddenly it works.

    the only thing thats still strange is that sax shows the xconfig to usa a vesa driver but in my xorg.conf it clearly uses the nvidia.

    also the logo appears at startup and compiz works fine.

    anyone who made similar experiences?

    at my home pc i had to install the nvidia package 2 times before it worked. that seems to be a usual bug with the nvidia drivers.

    regards
    sol

    Default Re: nvidia graphic driver 9200m

    the problem is that i cant use yast / sax2 to change the resolution or the multimonitor settings.
    also the problem is that only the downloaded and compiled driver version of the nvidia driver works but the opensuse package does not work. i think that should concern the opensuse developers.

    and the real major problem is that every time a kernel update comes out my comandline hating girlfriend has to compile the driver again.
    please tell me how i should explain that to her?

    I would be surprised if you couldn't get the repo version of the driver working. You were using the correct one, from what you said (02) Packages. And so long as you have the correct kernel module to match. But I know sometimes the only way is manually. I had that in 10.3

    Not sure about the girlfriend. I guess you will have to educate her in the ways of the Jedi.
    Failing that, disable the auto updater. And run her thru it ever week or so using software management. Or consider remote access. You can lock packages (In your case it would be the kernel packages) but it really doesn't lock in the true sense (I actually would like to see improvement in this area)

    actually it seems to be a known bug (as i suspected)

    maybe there is not enough connection between this forum and the developers?
