Problems with nvidia card and desktop effects

I just installed openSuSE 11.1 in my laptop with a Nvidia GeForce 7400 card, I installed the Nvidia driver from the nvidia repository, set up the proper resolution (1280x800) and enabled the desktop effects, after reinitiating the X server and login in back again, the display is messed up, not working.

Is anything wrong with the nvidia driver? or with the compiz version?

I would appreciate any help.



Just go to NVIDIA - openSUSE and download the NVidia driver that mathches your video card. Follow the on-screen instructions and you are done !!! It works like a charm (or at least, it worked for me)

Good Luck !

the display is messed up, not working.

Could you explain the problem properly?

Do you get a blank screen? Or everything is working except desktop effects?
