I am new to openSUSE and I have some question about it.
For the past two days ive been trying to get Ubuntu 10.04 to work but it has been nothing but frustration. I couldnt get the gpu driver to work and i could get the sound to work. Regarding drivers i was trying to install the Nvidia 195 drivers but they just didnt seem to agree. About the sound i have no idea on what to do to fix it. So i was wondering, are there any specific steps i need to take to get the gpu drivers to work and have 3D acceleration and what can i do to get the sound to work. And also what can i do to get the wireless to work.
Ah sorry about that. I ment to talk about openSUSE. I was just saying the trouble i was having with ubuntu and what i can do to not have that same trouble in openSUSE. I was wondering what i can do to get my Nvidia GPU to fully work in openSUSE and also the sound and wireless.
Open the repo manager in Yast
Pick Community …
Tick NVIDIA repo
Save and exit repo manager
Start software installer, it should auto-select two packages for your NVIDIA card. Install them, on a reboot the nvidia driver should load.
If you have generated a /etc/X11/xorg.conf , first remove/rename it, before rebooting. Done like this:
su -c 'mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.obsolete'
(enter rootpassword when asked for)
That shoud get it working. Still I suggest you do some reading in the link providing our valued member oldcpu’s excellent background info and instructions.
I installed as you said and now when i choose to boot to the desktop when it gets halfway loaded the screen just goes black. Also there was no xorg.conf to delete. SO i just simplely restarted. I guess i shouldnt have done that cuz of what i have now. Right now im on some Xen desktop setting. Its at 800x600 res. Its ok for now but i would like to have my screen at its native res which is 1920x1080. I was playing on doing some video stuff.
