How do I remove manually installed Nvidia?

Now that openSUSE 11.2 is officially released I’d like to remove the Nvidia driver I downloaded from their website and also I’d like to install the driver from the Nvidia repos.

What would be the prpoer way to do this?


as root: nvidia-installer --uninstall

Thanks, that worked fine.

I guess I was trying to do too much. I was logging in as level 3 to run that command but then I couldn’t get back to the desktop.

So for anyone else that sees this looking for an answer:

  1. Add the Nvidia repo

  2. Remove the manually installed driver

  3. Make sure the driver from the repos gets installed

  4. reboot
