Hey! First off im new at SUSE but i have come to like it a lot in just a few days. My problem is that i can’t get my NVIDIA card going, i’ve read all forumposts i could find regarding this issue. I laid my last hope to the one-click-install at opensuse.org/NVIDIA, Yast was finished everything installed fine. Then i rebooted into failsafe and did the following as i read in another thread:
–add-argb-glx-visuals -d 24.
shutdown -r now
After the restart i just get a message that x has to many errors and can’t start. My xorg.conf can be found here and the log here.
Thank you in advance, Afnaf.
Well, as a matter of fact you do not use nvidia-xconfig in openSUSE. You use sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia
Of course it will work ONLY if you have the proper drivers which can be found in YaST -->>Software Repositories -->> Add -->> Community Repositories and tick Nvidia (and Packman alongiside it :). Then install G02 version of nvidia when searching in that repo.
P.S. Have a look here http://en.opensuse.org/NVIDIA
Ty for your quick answer. Another question then should i uninstall the drivers i installed then or should u just run Yast again?
You have the right drivers, don’t worry.
When starting the PC clear the boot options with backspace and type 3
Just run as root sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia
after checking that settings are ok save them and press yes. You do not need to restart the pc.
After that type /etc/init.d/xdm start
It should start graphical interface, if it won’t come back here.
It worked as you said Master Thank you very much.
Then have phun and start discovering the world of Linux;)
