SLES 10 - Graphics problem after final boot
During the SLES 10 install, obviously I can see the info on the screen, and I can use my mouse. In the hardware phase, it correctly identifies my graphics card (Nvidia GeForce 7600SE) and my generic mouse. After the final re-boot, I get the nice blue screen stating its Suse Linux Enterprise Server, then my monitor goes black, and the power button starts blinking, as if there is no input. I then re-start in safe mode, and run xorgconfig. I choose autoselect for the mouse, walk through the monitor settings (which I believe I'm setting right) then choose a generic Nvidia card (its all they have in the way of Nvidia), choose the resolutions and memory for the card, write the file, and then re-boot. Invariably I get an X window error. So...why will the install have beautiful graphics support, but the final boot will not?

Try setting the video driver to the generic vesa driver.
as root edit
driver = "nv"
driver = "vesa"
