http://forums.opensuse.org – Hello, I am trying to install the proper driver for my graphics card installed on a new Samsung E172 laptop (where I installed Suse 11.1 64bit + gnome). after following install instructions for suse 11.1-64bit here I am not able to even start in init 5 modus anymore!!!! Maybe I have installed the wrong driver, I don't know. Following the instructions above (it means using YAST) I was not able to check if the rpm file I was going to use with YAST was the correct one for my card (Nvidia GeForce 9600M GT). From YAST I get now following packages installed: nvidia-gfxG02-kmp-ec2 NVIDIA graphics driver kernel module for GeForce 6xxx and newer GPUs x11-video-nvidiaG02 NVIDIA graphics driver for GeForce 6xxx and newer GPUs here the Xorg.5.log file: Code: X.Org X Server 1.5.2 Release Date: 10 October 2008 X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0 Build Operating System: openSUSE SUSE LINUX Current Operating System: Linux linux-yqvg 2.6.27.7-9-default #1 SMP 2008-12-04 18:10:04 +0100 x86_64 Build Date: 03 December 2008  02:40:38PM           Before reporting problems, check http://wiki.x.org         to make sure that you have the latest version.

Fatal server error: no screens found Q1: should I use these driver instead (NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-190.42-pkg2.run) and recompile the nvidia kernel module myself??? Q2: why after YAST installation attempt my grub menu indicates also a new booting option looking like this "SUSE 11.1 etc. + EC2" which is also not working? Many thanks for help! Alex (Distributions)
