Is the You nvidia installer working?


I have read in many posts that severeal people have the same problem with me. The Online nvidia installer from You doesn't work well. But all those thread ( as far as I read ) end up in suggesting installing via nvidia installer from nvidia.com.

My question is , is the nvidia install in You working?

Thanks

note : I'm using Suse 9.3

it worked very fine with me in Both SuSe 9.1 and 9.3

I guess you should describe your problem a little bit

I followed this instruction but nothing happenned.

Inside YOU enable "Installable and Installed Patches" for "Show Patch
Category" and select "Download NVIDIA(r) Graphics Driver" from the
patches list (usually at the bottom of the list). Note, that you need
to mark it as "Update" (right mouse click) if you already installed it
before and the driver was uninstalled - for any reason. Proceed as
usual now. After YOU has finished restart your Xserver (i.e. logout
from your Xsession) and you're fine.

I have read in another thread that some people are having the same problem. I have already tried to "Update' just as what the instruction said. but nothing happnened.

Did I miss some steps?

Thanks

I have rebooted the computer too without no luck. I think reboot and login logout should restart the xserver already. Isn't it?

Thx
