Found this info on a support list and am passing
it along for those
still having problems. Did it all from a terminal window and rebooted
into safe mode for the install. Works great now. Hope it helps.
1) Kernel sources must be installed and configured. Usually this means
installing the 'kernel-source' RPM with YaST2 and configure it then
with the following commands:
cp /boot/vmlinuz.config /usr/src/linux/.config
cp /boot/vmlinuz.version.h /usr/src/linux/include/linux
cp /boot/vmlinuz.autoconf.h /usr/src/linux/include/linux
make cloneconfig dep
2) Use the nvidia installer.
3) Enable 3D support with SaX2.
I was able to get the driver to install using this method. I have another
issue though. The Geometry changes when using SaX2 and selecting the nvidia
driver. Geometry changes to 1400X1050 when I "Test" and I can't get it to
to 1600X1200. On my laptop this resolution looks lousy. And, I've checked
XF86Config and don't find the place where resolution is set. Being that
everything else works, could I save with the higher Geometry setting and not
Or where would I find the Geometry setting to manually change it?
Try making you preferred changes in YaST rather than SaX2. SaX2 pretty
much sucks, I have always set-up the new driver there to a resolution I
could use, then got into YaST and fine-tuned it. I think that YaST uses
SaX2, but it always works the way I want it to when I use YaST. I'm a
newbie at this so everything I just said might just be a big pile of
shit. Sorry, hope this helps.
