I've just installed OpenSUSE 10.3 without any problems. I can start the OS in failsafe mode (runlevel 3) but the screen turns black when trying to boot to runevel 5.
I ran a Fedora-based dist. on the same computer before and had the same problem. I then tried to install the NVIDIA driver and was told that GCC wasn't installed:
"Unable to find the development tool 'cc' in your path; please make sure that you have the package gcc installed. If gcc is installed on your
system, then please check that 'cc' in your path."
Then, I was able to install the necessary development tools (including GCC), configure the driver and boot to level 5. I'm having the same problem now and after reading http://en.opensuse.org/NVIDIA
, I start Yast in text mode, search and find the 'kernel-source', start the package installation, nothing happens and after a couple of seconds I'm back to the Yast welcome screen and nothing is installed.
So, why can't I install the packages using Yast in text mode?
How do I install the package 'kernel-source'?
Are there any other ways to get the NVIDIA driver configured?
(I'm using a new Lenovo ThinkPad 61p with a NVIDIA Quadro FX 570M graphics card)
