    Nvidia driver?


    Hi. I was wondering if there was a way to show 3d graphics using an nvidia graphics driver. I know it works on fedora core 5, but how do you do it on SuSe 10.1?

    It gave me some kind of error. Something to do with kernal modules.

    You need to install those in YAST : kernel-source, gcc and make.

    Also, there is another way to install the drivers, as explained by techieMoe :

    first make sure u set the installation source to DVD..or CD dunno the exact CD number
    then
    goto YaST > Software management > and check if kernel-sources,make and gcc are installed...if u dont see a tick then tick and install it from the DVD/CD...

    u should be on ur way then....

    I got it working, but every now and then, the screen will pause briefly on some of my screen savers. It didn't do this on fedora. I will continue using SuSe anyway, because it happens so little like once every 5 hours.

    Edit:
    I restarted and it stopped pausing.
