Nvidia Graphics Problem...

Hello all,

I am just trying openSUSE 11 for the first time, and I am absolutely impressed. I do, however, have a single issue that is ruining the experience a bit:

YaST automatically updated my nVidia driver (to the correct one), but my resolution and display are totally messed up every time that I boot up.

I’ve managed to find out that Nvidia-settings can fix my problem, but it is a hassle to have to right-click on an extremely distorted desktop, manage to run the nvidia-settings command, and then try to tab and press enter blindly until my screen gets corrected. Whenever I try to have nvidia-settings save my configuration, it doesn’t actually seem to make a difference.

I have also noticed that, no matter what settings I use, SaX2 kills my screen when it tries to autodetect my settings.

Is there any way to automate nvidia-settings opening and applying the correct settings at boot?

I tried adding a few lines to my xinitrc file, as per an ubuntu guide suggested, but that didn’t help any either.

My (relevant) system is:

Intel Celeron D @ 2.93 gHz
VIA PM8MS Motherboard
Geforce 440 Mx 8x AGP Graphics

openSUSE 11.0 32-bit
Nvidia Forceware 96.43.05
Xserver 11.0

*Thank you in advance for the assistance! *:slight_smile:

Did you try the Nvidia-settings as root.
Then save to X Configuration file.
Then reboot?
