Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

How do I undect it. I did everything I could to turn that off in the bios. Also when I plug the moniter into the on video drive, I get no picture at all neither before linux or windows boots uo or afterwards so it seem like the has it off but linux for some reason can still detect it.\
I think this must be the problem since no one else seems to experience the same trouble I have had.
I know in windows I can just go to device manager and disable a device. How do I do that in Linix?
Or am I reading the error message wrong. ( I am reading it as though there are two card card 0 = nv card 1 = intel)
Would this be a setting in the boot up. I tried clicking on the hardware tool icon in the sys tray. I selected the second card (trigen). It then takes me to yast2 wher it has my graphic settings but it shows the info for the nvidia card.
By the way, I love the resolution in Linux. I have never had a slicker looking desktop
Well I looked throught my handy admister guide and could not find anything about removing devices.
So my questions are:
are these 2 cards most likely causeing some kind of conflict
-if so, how do I remove one of them from SUSE
are there two drivers for the same card and this makes it look like there are 2 cards
-same question, how would I remove one or the other?
I tries sax2, sax2 -m 0=nv, sax2 -m 1=nv, sax2 -m 0=nvidia, sax2 -m 1=nvidia, and different case variations of nvdia in case this was case sensitive (live most of linux is). I also tried going thru YAST2 hardware, grahics, enable 3d acceleration and was told that "(EE) nvidia(0) *****Aborting*****
(EE) Screen (s) found, but none have a usable configuration"
Which also brings another question:
I let SUSE choose the moniter for me since mine was not on the list (I know my moniter supports 3d acceleration, but maybe this one doesn't? btw my brand isn't on the list and has no linux driver -
I have installed the entire dvd to my hard drive and and now getting an error that the precomplied or configured kernel is not found.
I must have messed this up royally.
I am going to again reinstall SUSE.
If someone - and I really appreciate your patience- can please just post or email me the steps without YAST (I tried doing the update via yast about 6 times in row since someone said that you may need to do that) along with with packages I need. I know I need the kernel source, gcc, make. Is there anything else?
Please right this as though I am a baby because I am about to through my computer out the window.
I am sorry I will not let this thread die. When I get this working I will go thru every post and person click that thanks button.
Once again I am really sorry, but I do not want to give up. I really don't.

If you're asking if you need to install these programs to get 3d acceleration to work, the answer is no. Usually the default install of KDE packages in SUSE is plenty.
If everything goes well, running YOU after the install will give you the option to install the nvidai drivers that enable 3d. And everything is done for you by the scripts that SUSE provides. Also, don't do the kernel updates until your machine reboots like the warning message says.
2) Should I wait to update that until after I have used YOU to install the nvidia driver?
During the install, your machine will reboot after the first part and then install all the additional packages plus ask you to choose your user name, root password, etc. At the end it will ask you if you want to run YOU. If you say yes here, there will be a warning that says this is not a good time to update the kernel before rebooting.
You can skip this update entirely or just update the programs, including nvidia, without updating the kernel. Then after rebooting you can update the kernel and the kernel sources.
4) Also, am I suppose to be running YOU with the x-server stopped in order to do this update. If so how do I run YOU from the command line?
