Hello to the list.
I use SuSE 9.1 and it works very fine. Some time
ago I got new nvidia
driver and installed it without problems, I got 3D without problems and
all fine, problem is when I went to console (Crtl+ALT+F1 or F2) all is
in blue, after some time all consoles were corrupted.
How can I solve my problem with consoles???
I have the exact same Nvidia card, although I only have SuSE 9.0, but I had a
similar problem. If I switched between consoles 1-6 and X four times then X
Windows would lockup and I would have to login remotely from another box and
kill X because I couldn't even switch to the consoles after that.
The problem went away when I upgraded to the Nvidia driver v1.0.6111 as you
have, plus I upgraded X Windows to X.org using these packages:
I went there, but there is a README, under directory SuSE 9.1, saying
that all files are included in SuSE 9.1
Personally, I would recommend this version of X.org
over the newer packages
because the latest seem to be unstable and these are a straight forward
upgrade of the existing X packages. Just download them to an empty directory
and run 'rpm -Uvh *.rpm' in that directory as root. (Remember to
backup /etx/X11/XF86Config first if you have a good setup so you can replace
it after installing the RPMs)
Hope that solves your problem too. And you can always go back to the SuSE X
packages if not.
There is another directory with newer versions of Xorg, name is
Xorg-X11R6.7.0, should I use these files under i386/suse91???
