Help discovering what my problem lies
I had OpenSUSE 10.2 installed with a dual boot with XP. Everything worked fine but earlier this week I decided to reinstall to get rid of my XP partition and free up some hard drive space.
When I finished installing OpenSUSE I had no GUI. I tried startx but got the error:
After changing xorg.conf to use xorg.conf.saxsave in /exc/X11 I was able to get startx to work.

xauth: creating new authority file /root/.serverauth.4592

However, something still isn't quite right. The screen is jumpy when I do things like scroll a web page. I have installed the latest drivers for my video card, a NVIDIA GeFORCE 7600 GT, just as I had on the previous installation.
Any ideas what the problem could be?
