Video card problems


I have suse 9.2 and Nvidia riva tnt2 ultra model 64/model 64 pro. I cant seem to get the 3d stuff to work I went to Nvidia.com and I did Y.O.U. I still cant get it to use the 3d. Im not to good with the shell thing with typing all that stuff so try to keep the answers simple please.

(Not to sound mean - but have you googled this at all?)

and have you changed the driver line in you xorg.conf/xfree86.org? If not then, as the root user, open /etc/X11/xorg.conf in a text editor. From there find the section devoted to your video card. In this section is a line which specifies a driver, I believe it reads like this:

driver "nv"

Should the driver be set to "nv", change it to "nvidia" and restart the X server by pressing Ctrl + Alt + Bkspc. (Warning - this will log out your user. Save all open files you wish to keep.)

If the line already reads "nvidia" then I suggest you follow that walkthrough very carefully - as I am stumped.

I'm sorry it didn't work.

If you will post your X config file, I will see what I can do.

(this is inside /etc/X11 and ends in .conf)
