Please can anyone help? I have just migrated to Suse 9.0 Prof and this is a brand new PC that dual boots Suse/XP Prof via Grub. Suse will not operate my V92 internal modem, my keyboard has to be reset to UK keyboard each time I reboot but my biggest problem is the Nvidia graphics.
I have downloaded an NVIDIA driver : NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5328-pkg1.run
I am scratching my head on how to install. Everytime I try and log into saX2 the screen goes black and I have to reboot. I have rebboted into safe mode and logged into saX2 and the same thing happens. The screen has also gone black when trying to configure my monitor in YAST.
I am at my wits end and being a Linux virgin I am at dead end. I have found Suse support to be fairly ineffective. My O/S is fresh from the latest DVD and I have not downloaded any updates as of yet.
If anyone can help me with the black screening problem I would be really grateful!!
