hi all ~
I have an HP Pavillion dv6105us laptop, AMD Turion64, with a GeForce Go
6150, dual booting with Media Center and SuSE 10.1.
Tired of no GL or 3D support in the dummy suse drivers, I have tried
three different methods to install the real drivers, and they all caused
the same problem. I have tried: YAST, 'tiny-nvidia-installer', and a
direct rpm run, following the howto that the nvidia site points to, with
the same result. I made sure I was in runlevel 3. Each time I
installed the drivers, the install seemed to go without a hitch, no
errors or crfashes, but after rebooting, X tries to start, and all I get
is a blank screen. Crashing X shows an error about no screens being
available. I don't know enough to directly configure the X server, and
sax won't load. I'm going to image the disk before trying it again,
since I have had to reinstall each time (the newbie curse). Any help
would be appreciated.
I have had better luck with nvidia's program nvidia-xconfig (see
than with sax.
I run 9.3 and it works fine. But some people are having problems with
the nvidia drivers and recent updates of 10.1. Search the list archives
for 'nvidia' for more info.
