    Nvidia drivers in SUSE linux 9.1 pro


    I have a Geforce 5600 and I am running Suse Linux 9.1 pro. the problem is that every time I try to install the nvidia drivers both from nvidia and using YOU after I reboot the system it goes into INIT 5 then all i get is a blank screen. I have tried booting into INIT 3 and going to INIT 5 from there. I have edited my XF86Config file, I have configured SAX2 correctly still when i reboot some my changes take effect it locks up and I get a blank screen when I go into INIT 5. I have tried a number of things. someone come to my rescue

    Erm, you got a point there. Didn't twig you are using 2.6

    In that case I don't believe they are.

    Did you remember to run sax2 -m 0=nvidia after the installation. So you can set everything up?

    nvidia drivers

    I have another problem... when i run the cat /proc/driver/nvidia/status command at the prompt i get "status: disabled" it doesnt make sense considering i get the nvidia logo when i boot. i cant figure out the problem i get around 4075 FPS when i run GLX gears if that helps
