I don’t use the script of jdmcdaniel3, so I can not help with that. jdmcdaniel3 will need to help you with that.
I typically install via the very simple manual method (also called ‘the hardway (that is not hard)’ ).
For my wife’s PC with the G210 nVidia I ensured that KMS was set to YES in yast > System > /etc/sysconfig Editor > System > Kernel > NO_KMS_IN_INITRD and change it to “yes”. This takes a minute or two to save once changed is submitted. There is NOTHING special there. One is advised to try that per the openSUSE-11.4 release notes which I assume you read already. Right ? The release notes is ALWAYS the 1st instruction I look at for any software.
I ensure that I have NO packages with ‘nvidia’ in the rpm file name. ie if :
rpm -qa '*vidia*'
shows you have any such packages (ie with nvidia in the rpm file name) installed then the method I employ won’t work. So if you want to try the method I employ, then you need to remove those (there are some exceptions but I won’t confuse the issue by listing them here).
I ensure I have kernel-source (of identical version to kernel) and kernel syms installed. I ensure I have the base-development pattern selected (with appropriate packages from it installed).
I ensured I had the latest nVidia video driver from here: Unix Drivers Portal Page which for the G210 for 32-bit openSUSE is the 271.41.06 here and for 64-bit openSUSE is the 270.41.06 here. Its important you download the right driver for a 32-bit or the different driver for a 64-bit (which means your openSUSE version and NOT your hardware version), else you are in for a load of frustration. In your case the output you provided earlier suggests a 32-bit version so ensure you download a 32-bit version (and NOT 64-bit).
Also put the driver somewhere that it can be found easily in a terminal.
On some PCs I blacklisted the nouveau video driver by adding the line “blacklist nouveau” in the /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf file. That can also be done with root permissions by typing:
echo "blacklist nouveau" >> /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf
I then booted the PC, and when the grub boot appeared I typed ‘nomodeset 3’ such that those words appeared in the ‘options’ line of the grub menu after the current entry (with a space between them and the current entry) and the allowed the PC to continue to boot to a full screen text mode.
I logged in as a regular user, and then after logged in typed ‘su’ to get root permissions.
Then with root permissions, I navigated to the directory where the .run file (downloaded above) is located and I installed the driver with:
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-270.41.06.run -q
for my 64-bit. Yours will be different, possibly:
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-270.41.06.run -q
and then after that install is complete do NOT look for sax2 (as it no longer exists) but rather I instead ensured I had NO /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, and also ensured that I had NO CHANGES in any of the files in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ (ie left everything as ‘stock’ installed). And then simply rebooted with root permissions with:
shutdown -r now
Note if at anytime the boot fails, you can typically specify ‘x11failsafe’ as a boot code that will boot to the FBDEV graphic driver.
Note if you made changes to any of the files in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ then you need to UNDO those changes. You also do NOT need a file called xorg.conf anymore for most graphic cards and for a nominal monitor, this is true for the G210. If you have such a file, dependant on what you have inside, it will MESS up your ability to use the nVidia G210 (ie one MUST know what they are doing to have such a file).
I hope that helps.
