I tried them today. I remember durring install when I did the online update
the Download Nvidia drivers were there and I selected them. But now when I go
into YOU they don't show up anywhere. Even in installed updates or all
updates.

I tried to load nvidia for the driver in xorg.conf but it still shows driver
nv in hwinfo.

So I tried downloading the run file from nvidia.com and when I tried to
install it it failed durring compiling them for the kernel.

Its so frustrating when I know it will just work in Windows :) but I'll stick
it out what ever it takes!

I'm starting to think I may just have problems with the video card as a whole.
Cus I remember when it was in my older system it would lock up all the time
in SuSE 9.2. And now that I've replaced the video in the older system it runs
fine. And now this brand new box which I was just trying to setup as a
multimedia box in the living room is locking up. And the only tv out card I
had was this old gf2ti.

So I think I'll just go pick up a cheap nvidia with a composite out. See how
that goes.
