And then I get error:
Unable to load the kernel module ‘nvidia.ko’
ERROR: Unable to build the NVIDIA kernel module.
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file
‘/var/log/nvidia-installer.log’ for details. You may find suggestions
on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
driver download page at Welcome to NVIDIA - World Leader in Visual Computing Technologies.
No you don’t probably best to install the drivers from Nvidia easiest is to make a folder nv in your home and download them there.
Once downloaded log out then choose console login in the menu at the bottom left of the screen.
Log on as root and type cd /home/<yourusername>/nv then sh NVIDIA then press tab to fill out the whole name then press enter and answer yes to all the questions.
When done type exit then ctlr+delete to reboot.
If the screen settings are wrong when you login open a console and type sudo nvidia-settings set your resolution and choose save to xconfig.
Once the drivers reach the repos you can add them, though they are usually a bit behind the ones from Nvidia.
So you may want to keep them. The only downside is that you have to reinstall them if the kernel is upgraded.
On my laptop, I had the same errors a few days ago when some upgraded kernel version was installed on this opensuse 11.1 by the opensuse updater whereas the kernel source was not updated. Today i downgraded to the previous kernel version. Then kernel and kernel-source were on the same version. So the nvidia driver installed properly.
When in software management highlight kernel-default, then click versions tab and click the right one?
If that doesn’t work try simply to reinstall it. As far as i know, right know there’s only one version available
I am using RC1 the final release, intern release was on 4 dec.
So I expected the mis-match is fixed. The public release is 17 dec but when there is no easy way to get opensuse 11.1 nvidia we better wait.
I didn’t tell You to downgrade gcc It has to be the same, what i wanted You to downgrade is all kernel related rpms like base, extra and default. When looking at version at software management You see end like 4.1 then it’s a good one.
