Sorry, but I have to disagree with both of you on this occasion. For two
First, AFAICT, the OP is still trying to install the nvidia driver, not
the nv driver. So I think the instructions you both gave are inappropriate.
He said that the nvidia driver did not work, and that he had to reinstall
the whole system because sax would not start - presumably to uninstall the
commercial nvidia driver and put back the nv open driver and try again.
Thus, I don't think my advice was incorrect.
Also, Patrick's advice is correct in that situation, but if it weren't,
there is also the corresponding switch2nvidia script.
We were both giving advice about how to undo the not working change to
nvidia. How to get the commercial driver going will go next when the OP
replies and we have more info.
Second, the OP says he has followed the *suse*
instructions (as at the
URL above or rather at the equivalent for AMD64) without success. I also
had no success that way. I did have success when I followed the *nvidia*
instructions and used the *nvidia* installation and configuration tools
instead of the *suse* ones (yast, sax2).
The thing is that the instructions in the nvidia page points SuSE users to
read the link I posted. Those instructions are correct, and give more than
one way to do it.
