NVIDIA Geforce 2 GTS dirver kernel module won't load in Suse 10.0
I am trying to enable 3D acceleration on my suse 10 installation by using a driver from nvidia. I tried using YaST to update it but that didn't work (if anyone can help me with this part of it, please do. it would make things a lot easiler if i could just get YaST to do the work). Because I couldn't get YaST to update my driver, i downloaded it manually, installed it by shuttin down the x server and using the command
the installation went well, so I edited my /etc/X11/Xorg.conf as the instructions on the nvidia site tell me to. I changed the line
Driver "nv" to Driver "nvidia"
and made sure the line
Load "glx" was in the Modules section.
I reboot and the x server wont start, so i try to load the nvidia module manually with
but I get an error telling me to check dmesg. Dmesg says there is an error loading the nvidia kernel module, BUT WHY?
I have kernel 2.6.13 an i have the kernel-source, make and gcc packages installed. I have since uninstalled the nvidia driver and reverted back to the default driver, but i really want to get this to work. PLEASE HELP!
