I'm looking for nvidia drivers for SuSE 9.1. While the Novell site is very fancy, it seems to change often, and now I cannot find where all of the old SuSE rpms are located. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
I never had a driver for my 9.1 but I remember finding and using a 9.0 driver. The most success I had was from using the nvidia.com run package. I have used them with a Gforce 7800 and an old mx 200.
Nvidia have instructions for installation as well.
I never managed to get 3D working right with the 9.0 rpm and I was put off sax for life in 9.1. The nvidia packages install their own configuration program as well.
I'm using 11 now and I still use the nvidia.com run packages.
Hope this helps you.
I've seen the instructions on the nvidia site and it looks like I need to compile a kernel. Did you find this to be true? I was hoping to find some YAST-like solution that might allow me to install the driver as a module. I'm avoiding the kernel route because I cannot afford (right now) to break this installation.
(sorry Dave, forgot about the open-SuSE reply-to thing)
