I have a new HP dv6000z laptop.
I have installed Suse 10.2 in it.
I have nvidia Geforce Go7200 in my laptop
I wanted to install the drivers for nvidia, and I followed the instructions from suse.org and nvidia.org
I did using the yast , but after i installed, when i reboot the machine, the graphics wont start.
So i uninstalled the rpm.
I tried again, but could not do it.
Then i tried to follow the 2nd method, to download the package NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-9746-pkg2.run
and then issue the command sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-9746-pkg2.run -q
the pre req were that I need to install kernel source, gcc and make packages.
I did that right.,
But when i issue the sh to run the nvidia package it says,
ERROR: You appear to be running an X server; please exit X before installing.
For further details, please see the section INSTALLING THE NVIDIA DRIVER
in the README available on the Linux driver download page at
i cant seem to find a solution for this, in .nvidia site.
Can someone help me in this regard.
