Thread: Install GeForce 9300M GS

    Default Install GeForce 9300M GS

    Hi,

    I wish to install the NVidia drivers on my laptop and I am a little confused, so I am asking for advise.



    Some information from my side:

    I am using a laptop Dell Vostro 1520.


    Code:
    davi@linux-m7m5:~> sudo hwinfo --gfxcard | grep Model
    [sudo] password for root: 
      Model: "nVidia G98M [GeForce 9300M GS]"

    Code:
    davi@linux-m7m5:~> sudo lspci | grep VGA
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation G98M [GeForce 9300M GS] (rev a1)

    Than I have a bunch of options that I do not know what to choose.

    And I have got this nouveau drivers installed. Should I remove it first? If I should how can I do it?

    Code:
    davi@linux-m7m5:~> sudo lspci -nnk | grep -A3 VGA
    [sudo] password for root: 
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation G98M [GeForce 9300M GS] [10de:06e9] (rev a1)
        Subsystem: Dell Device [1028:02bc]
        Kernel driver in use: nouveau
        Kernel modules: nouveau
    davi@linux-m7m5:~>

    Default AW: Install GeForce 9300M GS

    I think, the only thing is to install:
    Code:
    zypper in x11-video-nvidiaG03
    That should install all necessary drivers.

    No need to disable or delete any nouveau packages.
