NVIDIA Installation Error


Hi,
I'm installing a NVIDIA driver and encountered some error message. Please see below the sequence (I've set runlevel to init 3);

linux:~/SuSe # rpm -ivh NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4191.suse81:i586.rpm
Preparing... ############################ [100%])
file /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/nvidia-drv.o from
install of NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4191 conflicts with file from
package XFree86-server-4.3.0.1-21

Can someone please help? I'm very new with linux and still on learning stage. Thank you in advance.

Remove the installed package to use the other.

Try

# rpm -Uvh NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4191.suse81:i586.rpm

instead. This will do an update rather than what you are trying to do which is an install from scratch.

Are you quite sure you have the ancient Suse 8.1 ? ?
The old NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4191.suse81:i586.rpm is for 8.1 only !

A modern Suse (10x..11x) # zypper se nvidia
( The NVIDIA.repo must be present.)

Example Suse11.2: # zypper in x11-video-nvidia<version>
( e.g. x11-video-nvidiaG02-190.42-9.1.i586 ).
Code:
[NVIDIA Repository]
name=NVIDIA Repository
enabled=1
autorefresh=1
baseurl=http://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/11.2
type=rpm-md
gpgcheck=1
keeppackages=1
