    Wink Nvidia Drivers Problem

    Hi there...
    I'm unable to install the Nvidia drivers in SUSE11.1. This is my first time i am using the Open SUSE,it really good. Previously i was with Debian "Lenny". I am getting an error and the Log file is as shown below.

    ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file
    '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details.You may find suggestions on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux driver download page at Welcome to NVIDIA - World Leader in Visual Computing Technologies.

    I have sucessfully installed the "Kernel-source" "automake" "gcc" packages which are pre-requisites for the same. Got stuck with this problem. Please give any suggestions to overcome this problem and are there any instalaltion manuals that can guide me to get the drivers working for me.

    Thank You Very Much....

    Default Re: Nvidia Drivers Problem

    Try installing kernel-syms and linux-kernel-headers and see if that helps.

    You could also add the nvidia repository and install from the software manager.

    I installed the driver using Yast from the nvidia repo. Make sure you
    selected the correct one. ( this will depend on your graphic card model (
    See the nvidia website for correct drivers) {I have a Geforce 8499GS. Only
    difference I can see in my system from yours on the prerequisites is I also
    have make installed, which Nvidia says you need. I also have automake
    installed.

    For my 8400 card or any 8 series card i used the following:
    nvidia-gfxG02-kmp-default-185.18.14_2.6.27.23_0.1-2.2
    x11-video-nvidiaG02-185.18.14-2.2

    On my 11.2 Milestone 3 system I finally had to install the hardway (Manual)
    and use the 185.18.29 version. Manual install f=gives error about a missing
    link, but answering OK goes ahead and installs everything, and the link is
    correct. At least it works.

    You did not say how you tried to install, but try YaST first, if it works
    you do not have to recompile the driver after a kernel update.

    Hope this helps you.
