I have installed openSuse 11.2 recently and I am getting distortion on my dual display. I have the nVidia GeForce Go 6150 video card and installed the nVidia drivers from the Opensuse site.
I was able to get the dual display up and running but sometimes there is distortion on the display. It looks like the pixels on some lines of the display are being shifted horizontally back and forth real quickly.
I use the same monitor with my Windows work laptop with an nVidia Quadro card with no distortion ever.
Any ideas on what the cause is or how I can fix it? I was thinking it was a driver problem. Are the drivers provided on the openSuse site the most up to date?
As you may have noticed from the real URL popping up somewhere during the install the NVIDIA drivers (the ‘official’ ones anyway) are located on NVIDIAs own server and should be fairly up to date. You could doublecheck it by starting up software management and searching for nvidia, then look up the installed package and check the Installed (available) column.
