nvidia driver configuration not possible: my xorg.conf


Hi all,

under OpenSuse 10.2 I installed NVIDIA drivers successfully and activated compiz. Everything works fine, except when launchng the Nvidia configuration app. There I receive this alert:

- You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server. -

I did it, but nothing happens, still I get this message. I don't know what to do, even if I suppose that Nvidia is actually recognized, because the graphic is slightly better than before, I receive the Nvidia splash screen and I can have compiz. But I can't set brightness and so on without that app.

I post the xorg.conf

run
Code:
glxinfo
if you get a few lines that do not mention nvidia then you are not running nvidia drivers if it gives you loads of output plus a line at the top
Quote:
server glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
then you can be sure you are running the NVIDIA drivers

No, it shows server glx vendor string : SGI

while some lines below it says client glx vendor string: NVIDIA corporation

Uhm? Any idea?

when I have had problems with a distrobutions NVidia implimentations in the past I have gone straight to nvida.com and followed the links to download their latest version.
Should give a more definative "its now installed and working" result.
Let us know how you get on.

i think it's a problem with Xgl, i've got the same problem, i tried uninstalling Xgl and the nvidia-settings worked, but the composite stuff didn't lol. i might try using AIGLX instead.

i just found this -
can't post this URL either, eventhough it's to this site lol

it says you can change the settings with this -
/opt/gnome/bin/gnome-xgl-settings

i clicked on the Sax button and nothing happened!

here's some stuff about AIGLX if you want it -
i can't post urls to other sites, i'm not allowed with my first post.
