I am trying out Open Suse 11.2 on a pc with an Nvidia Fx 5200 128 Mb.
Running the KDE version I get a screen resolution of 1280x1024.
But with the Gnome version the max resolution is 800x600.
Can anyone tell me why.??
Plus i can not find the way to install the nvidia driver
Conclusive proof that KDE is better than Gnome
But seriously, follow the instructions on the Wiki at this website to install the NVIDIA proprietary driver, and then use nvidia-settings as superuser to set the resolution and everything else. Works the same under KDE and Gnome, and you should only have to do it once.
NVIDIA - openSUSE use the one click and you’re done.
First search result for Google/Yahoo/Bing for “opensuse nvidia”.
Well the one click Nvidia driver install is fine but how do you adjust resolution. Its not in YAST that I can find.
I already gave advice on this, check your topic on the matter.
I was just coming here to post a link to the other thread :\
sax2 -r -m 0=NVIDIA
In the window you can change resolution.
Or just use nvidia-settings as su. You can do that from the konsole on the desktop whereas sax2 is best used at runlevel 3.
