Nvidia problem in SuSE 7.3


Hi,

I have a fresh SuSE 7.3 installation, and a Asus V8200 GeForce3 card with Athlon 1.2 GHZ. I have downloaded the Nvidia drivers with Online update, and when I rebooted I could get KDE and X running ok.

But my fps is now very slow, and after awhile gears now won't even run, and exits with 'Segmentation fault'. Something's obviuosly not working ok.

I have also performed these steps in XFree86config:
- Load "glx"
- "nv" to "nvidia"
- Option "NvAgp" "1"

Sax2 will run and configure the card but does not fix anything. The same goes for running 'xfree86config2.

Has anyone installed a Geforce3 card on SuSE 7.3 with success, and could help me out here?

Regards,

Jostein Berntsen

PS: The card was running perfectly in SuSE 7.1 with about 4500 fps in gears. Now the fps is about 20!

just get the drivers by source from nvidia.com and install them manually. it's much easier to trouble shoot then

Do you mean the source rpms or tar.gz files? I get a lot of error messages when trying to install the tar files.

The kernel in SuSE 7.3 is 2.4.10-4GB. Maybe I should try to install 2.4.16 or 2.4.17 and reconfigure my card? I have heard some people made that work.
