http://forums.opensuse.org – I installed OpenSuse Gnome version 64 bit on a HP laptop DV7 Intel Dual Core with nVidia 9600 GM card All went well, until after I had installed the nVidia drivers from this page: NVIDIA drivers - openSUSE I selected the Geforce 1-click install and Yast went on to installl all the packages (a lot of 32-bit),took about half an hour. I logged out/in, and could work as normal, until I rebooted. Maybe I waited not long enough (5 minutes), but the screen was blank, then I gave up. Anyone has an explanation. I can always re-install everything, but then what went wrong with the nVidia package ? Did I select the correct one for my system ?:| (Distributions)
