I'm currently running Suse 9.2. Everything works fine except for the resolution, which is stuck in 1024x768 resolution. I want 1280x800, which is what the monitor is suposed to have
I found from some site that had installed debian on an R3000 that I needed a Nvidia driver for my monitor (it has a Nvidia nForce3 chipset for the display). The Linux IA32 driver was the one (it can be gotten on nvidia.com).
But when I first tried to install it, the driver asked for a c compiler. So I got gcc. Then it says that it can't find my kernel souce... (neither can I, not sure I have it). The driver is trying to look in
but that doesn't exist. The driver suggests that the path is wrong. I want to know where the source code should be (on Suse 9.2) and them how to change the deafault path, or how to get the source.
I also tried to use the built in updater for Suse, (YOU) and the kernel source does show up there but its box is shaded which means "do not install" and I can't seem to change that.
My computer's specs. (at least the ones I think are important here)
