However howcome the generic vga drivers or framebuffer drivers where not loaded. I did compile support for those drivers???
Because you still have the Nvidia driver set to load on startup, and you have Xorg configured to use the Nvidia driver.
At the console (when you first start up, because X won't start), login as root, then type "yast". That will take you to the yast setup tool, and you can run YOU from there to update/install your nvidia driver.
After you have build the nvidia module, then check in sax2 to make sure it is using the correct driver, then just reboot. All should be ok then.
