SuSE 10.1 NVIDIA driver install woes


Hmmmm, so far i've d/loaded driver for 6600gt: read how to install from nv site. I'm on dialup for linux [one way isat for xp] so online update rarely completes before dropout. this started because crt monitor scrambles gui when plugged to digital plug on graph card. I figured the driver might fix it. Tried sh NV..etc/as instructed at nv site: added gcc-kernel source-make as advised. sh says it can't continue with xserver working!Any ideas apreciated. ant_ my thanks to Nylex' init 3 stopped xserver

Kill your X server. You can do this by changing to runlevel 3 ("init 3" as root).

Please use some structure in your posts. This is very hard to read.

Thankyou Nylex, after using your advice, the install ran through beautifully.

oskar, the link to Jem report for suse is brilliant. Sorry for the scrappy post (it had been a long day).
