Thread: Install New Video Adapter and Load Proper Drivers

  1. #1

    Default Install New Video Adapter and Load Proper Drivers

    Well, it's finally here from China. My new NVidia:
    AGP 8X GeForce EVGA 6200 4X 8X 256 MB Video Graphic Card

    and I need to configure it for the present system which has the mga driver for my Matrox Marvel G550 video adapter.

    Can anyone give a suggestion as to how to go about accomplishing this? Should I turn off the machine, insert the new video adapter and boot to the Live Version of 13.1 and perform an upgrade install, or what?

    Thanks for any help.

    No, that's not necessary. (you can't do an upgrade install with the Live Version btw)
    Just replace the card, and your system should autmatically load the correct driver for the new card.

    But, if you have an /etc/X11/xorg.conf explicitely specifying the mga driver, you should remove that first. Otherwise X will not start.
    If you have problems with booting, just select "Recovery Mode" under "Advanced Settings" in the boot menu.

    I have no idea how well the default (and opes source) nouveau works with this card though.
    You might want to install the proprietary nvidia driver (to get the best performance), but you can do this after you changed the card.
    For the GeForce 6200 you need the G02 driver, that's the second 1-click install here:
    SDB:NVIDIA drivers - openSUSE

    Well, the saga continues. No problems, just a report of what happened. The system determined the card upon reboot and downloaded drivers afterward. This process installed successfully. Then I utilized the One-Click you mentioned and installed those drivers where I notice a perceptible change in the font (it increased in size) and am deciding to go a few days to see how things have changed.

    Would you know if the hardware acceleration is active now? This was the primary reason for upgrading but don't know how to test to see if I've been successful in this task. Thanks again.

    Install the package "Mesa-demo-x" (if it is not installed already) and look at the output of:
    Code:
    glxinfo | grep render
    And/or have a look in /var/log/Xorg.0.log.

    Maybe post both if you want advice.

    Well, your system uses the fbdev driver, not nvidia, that's why the fonts are so big...
    Here's the error:

    Could you please post which nvidia rpms you have installed?

    For some reason the wrong kernel module was installed. You are using kernel-desktop, so you need nvidia-gfxG02-kmp-desktop.
    So enter YaST->Software Management, select "nvidia-gfxG02-kmp-desktop" for installation and select "nvidia-gfxG02-kmp-default" (and "kernel-default" as well, that has been installed as well I guess) to uninstall.

    Or type the following into a terminal window:
    Code:
    sudo zypper rm nvidia-gfxG02-kmp-default kernel-default +nvidia-gfxG02-kmp-desktop

    Got that done.

    Does this look proper?
