    Installation procedure for NVIDIA graphics card in SUSE 10.2


    Hello everybody,
    I am Linux newbie and have been facing problems with changing the resolution of the monitor.
    I took the following path: Yast - Hardware - Graphics Card and Monitor; and it gave me message "the configuration is Framebuffer based and your system does not support changes for resolution and/or color settings".
    I verified my system's(dual boot system) graphics card using windows OS and it showed NVIDIA Quadro FX 570, but in X11 configuration it shows "Card: VESA Framebuffer Graphics" and the Properties tab is not active.

    Please provide some support on the above problem.

    Thank you,

    Dipta.

    Hi and Weclome !

    You haven't installed Nvidia proprietary driver yet. Follow instruction from here for driver installation.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
