    Exclamation pLZ HELP!!! Nvidia 330M openSUSE 11.4

    I have been a ubuntu user for years and now am attracted to completely shift to OpenSUSE,
    But after more than 12 hours of searching z web, trying installing Nvidia driver for GEFORCE 330M in my Samsung RF510 laptop i have reached a crashing point.

    I did add the community nvidia repository, but there am meeting a lot of drivers about not less than 3, i don't know which is which..
    I tried installing i did tried the one which states is for newer drivers, but after reboot the GUI couldnt load, i had to reinstall my system, that did hurt! So now i want to do it without pain!!

    So please, may you help me out a more cleaner way to do it!!!

    Please z developers should come out with an automatic driver detector and download as in our fellows ubuntu,..i think its a good thing!!!
    Please am waiting!!!
    Thanks in ADVANCE!!

    Install the x11-video-nvidiaG02 and nvidia-gfxG02-kmp-xxxxxxxx where xxxxxxx is found from looking at the return you get in a console from running this: uname -r

    For example if you get this:
    Code:
    john@tumbleweed114:~> uname -r
    2.6.38-18-desktop
    then you would choose nvidia-gfxG02-kmp-desktop

    Before you proceed, what's the return you get from this command: /usr/sbin/hwinfo --gfxcard
    and from this command: ls -l /etc/X11 | grep conf

    Yes, green light.

    Get it right with 'uname -r'

    If you get a blank screen after install, don't re-install this time, instead revert to "nouveau" and you'll get a GUI back. Ask how to do that if the time comes.

    Bin utils should be available. I wonder what Software Repositories you have installed............
    Run this command and post back here: zypper -ls

    Use "advanced" form in your post and put the results in "code" tags -- easier to read.
