I have a box running openSuSe 11.0. It has an old 6200GT in it and all was working fine using the “1 click install”. I originally tried the files from nvidia but even after using yast to get the kernel-source installed the nvidia set up stil complained it was missing… Oh well.
Now the problem is it was all going great, then today I plugged in an S-Video cable so the kids could watch a flick using that box. Upon booting X fails to load and states “no useable screen found”.
After shutting down and unplugging the S-Video cable I still get the same thing. Im guessing its down to my native monitor using 1440x900, and the TV at best 1024x768. But why complain even after removing the S-Video?
So I opened xorg.conf but didnt really know what to play with in there. Used yast to reinstall the drivers…Same problem. Ran nvidia-xconfig out of desperation (which I read in another thread here.
I guess its not of the utmost inportance as the wireless NIC will be delivered tommorow and the box will get tucked away in a cupboard with X disabled. But Id still like to figure this out for future reference, as once vent has a nix client my main rig will be primarily running openSuSe, and I like to have a TV-out on it.
Thanks in advance
