Update Drivers


Over the past 2 days I have been trying to get this PC set up with SUSE 10.3, I am now on the internet. I was wondering if there is anywhere I can go to find updated drivers? When I set this box up I was not able to configure the display had used 'vesa'...the system stated the video card was not in the database. Is there a way to find the drivers and update them?

Thanks,
Travis

What graphics card is installed on your system? Usually drivers are part of the kernel (or are kernel modules), but some vendors do provide Linux compatible drivers.

Trident tgui 9660/968x/968x is the info that I have been able to find. I was thinking I would buy a new card. Anyone have any suggestions on which will work best?

Your best bet is to get an Nvidia based card because these are generally well supported in Linux and you can install the official Nvidia drivers if you wish.
