what I must do?
The kernel version will be confirmed if you open a terminal/konsole and do the command
For the nvidia driver to install, the system also needs to have the kernel-sources/kernel-headers. I don't know which SuSE call them.
I'm guessing, that if you google for suseforums, theres a couple that might give you some direction - I seem to recall that theres actually an easy way of installing the nvidia driver using YaST - but as it's been a long time since I used any SuSE version I don't recall how this is done.
But, I seem to recall that if you have a look at nvidia.com's linux drivers pages, there used to be a nice additional note about installing it under SuSE.
Sorry I can't be more specific, but thats all from memory.
p.s. Oh or there might be something at the distributions (SuSE) forum here at LQ ???
