Software Update-> Failed to start X server - Fatal error inserting NVIDIA
recently did a software update in Suse 10.2
New NVDIA drivers selected.
upon reboot I get the following error:
"xserver disabled restart GDM when configured correctly"
"Failed to start the x server ... It is likely that it is not set up correctly. Would you like to view the x server output to diagnose the problem?"
X windows system 188.8.131.522 (7.2.0 RC2)

X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0, Release 184.108.40.2062
Build Op System openSUSE SUSE Linux
Current Op System linux-PD 220.127.116.11-0.5-default#1smp
Module Loader Present
Fatal error inserting NVIDIA (/lib/modules/18.104.22.168-0.5-default
(EE) NVIDIA (0) Failed to load the NVIDIA Kernel Module
Stuck at login prompt.
Found a thread that suggested to boot into failsafe mode, login as root and run SAX2, but it aborts out and says that it couldnt start the configuration server: /var/log/SaX.log
very long to type here...
You could edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf and change the driver from nvidia to nv. Once you have X up and running, try reinstalling the nvidia driver.
I did as you said and I was able to get xserver back, thanks
lets see if I can goof up the driver update.
I went to this site
however I dont see instructions for Suse 10.2/Intel 64bit
does anyone have any suggestions?
thank you for your time
