Messed up Nvidia-driver after upgrade

I did an upgrade of Nvidia(Latest version v.196) and KDE-base4 to KDE 4.4.4(I think) in Yast2.

Now when i reboot the X doesnt start. I claim it can’t find any nvidia-module.
I thing the upgrade of Nvidia v.196 failed, so i need to know how to reinstall Nvidia in console(CLI). It only boot up in cli.

I thought it is so simple to just download the latest driver and install in CLI, but my NetworkManager doesnt start eighter so i don’t have any network.

OpenSUSE 11.2 64bits
KDE 4.4.x
Nvidia NV140 Quadro 512MB

I guess my mistake was to upgrade both KDE and Nvidia in the same operation :frowning:
Please help!

Was the driver installed from the repo originally or manually the hard way
SDB:Configuring graphics cards - openSUSE

You can access Yast this way and re-install the drivers
Boot to Level 3, then Yast and More…

The Nvidia-driver was installed from Nvidia-repo. I never had any problems earlier installing/upgrading from repos.

I guess i can try to reinstall it in init 3 and Yast, but first i need network. It seems NetworkManager doesnt start in init 3. How do i get it online in init 3?

more options:

Can you boot via failsafe? If yes, go into yast and reinstall the nvidia driver.

or try this Install the latest NVIDIA driver

I wrote this little howto …and it is not hard at all

You should get the same yast options in runlevel 3 as from the yast2 gui.
Just set your network up to connect via ifup in yast>net devices>network settings in runlevel 3.
