    Done. Does it update the driver automatically now? Um... or should I
    select something? Not sure at all.

    Hi
    Make sure any drivers you have installed previously have been
    removed...!! I would also run the following commands once any remnants
    have been removed as root user.
    Code:
    ldconfig
    depmod -aq
    Then run the following command from the cli to verify which kernel
    you have;
    Code:
    uname -r |cut -f3 -d "-"
    x11-video-nvidiaG02 and nvidia-gfxG02-kmp-<YOUR_KERNEL_TYPE> from the
    uname command above.

    Great. Deleted all Nvidia drivers. My screen went black to bash for a
    moment and now I am just a little scared to reboot.


    Code:
    --------------------
    uname -r |cut -f3 -d "-"
    --------------------
    output: default.

    What to do next? I just want to have the most recent nvidia drivers...

    Hi
    Did you reset via sax2 to the nv driver, if not don't worry;
    press ctrl+alt+F1 to get to the console, then login as root user;
    Code:
    init 3
    zypper in x11-video-nvidiaG02 nvidia-gfxG02-kmp-default
    sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia
    init 5 && exit
    Just make sure you configure your monitor correctly size, refresh
    rates etc!

    Thanks for your reply again. Unfortunately I am online with wifi right
    now.
    The command interrupts my wifi connection. Could you suggest another
    way I can do it right away, please?

    Hi
    Just run the zypper command first to install then drop to runlevel 3 to
    configure via sax2 etc. You can also add the following in the
    xorg.conf file AFTER running sax2 command in the section called
    "Screen";

    [CODE]
    Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "True"
    Option "DisableGLXRootClipping" "True"
    Option "RenderAccel" "True"
    Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
    [CODE]

    You just... just... rock.

    Wow. So much better now. I just had to give you my second positive
    recommendation. ...I'll continue to set up Compiz Fusion now.

    THANKS.

    Um...one more thing: Were exactly to add the values?
    Code:
    --------------------
    Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "True"
    Option "DisableGLXRootClipping" "True"
    Option "RenderAccel" "True"
    Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
    --------------------


    There are different Display settings as well as subsections...

    Hi
    It should start like this;
    Code:
    Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Screen[0]"
    Device         "Device[0]"
    Monitor        "Monitor[0]"
    DefaultDepth    24
    Option         "AllowGLXWithComposite" "True"
    Option         "DisableGLXRootClipping" "True"
    Option         "RenderAccel" "True"
    Option         "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
    SubSection     "Display"
    Depth       15
    Modes      "1024x768" "1024x600" "800x600" "768x576" "640x480"

    Hi
    Now the final note and this is soooooo important!!!

    If there is an upgrade to the kernel, you MUST wait until you see the
    updated Nvidia drivers appear in the update list (It can take a few
    weeks) before you can upgrade your kernel else it will break!!!
