How to install this?


I am having problems getting SUSE 9.2 to boot with my 6800, I have onboard video so wouldn't mind using that except I don't know how to tell it to use that.
So...I have found this http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-6106.html
How do I go about getting this to install when I only have either the text login or the install process?
Thanks.

Well, they tell you how to install it on the page you link to:
Quote:
STEP 3: Install
Type "sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6106-pkg1.run" to install the driver, then edit your X86Config file as appropriate. See the text README for more detailed instructions.
So log in at the text prompt, cd to the directory that has the file, and type
Code:
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6106-pkg1.run
The README file they refer to should answer any questions you have about the process and any questions the installer may ask.
