Question Nvidia drivers at installation start


is it possible to create a driver disk with drivers for the nvidia geforce 4 ti4200? I want to install the driver from the beginning of the installation of Suse Linux 8.2!

Does anyone know something?


Finally i got my system working :-)

I was able to get my graphics card working after updating per SuSE YOU!

Take a look at your Monitors Manual and look for the horizontal and vertical frequencys.
Then start Yast 2 and edit your settings under Hardware!
This has to work.

Good luck!

What about the case when the video card is not recognized at all by the SuSE 8.2 installer?
I was forced to make a text mode install and surprise at the X installation the installer recognized my video card. I still installed the nVidia drivers in order to get 3D acceleration work.

However, I still have problems with the monitor. I am unable to set the same frequency as in Windows so the image is altered under X. Any ideas how to change this in XConfig file?

Strange - should work with that card for the install.
I don't use Suse anymore but the normal tool to do this is Sax2 - never had much success with it though.
You can always use xf86config or xf86cfg - will ask for the refresh rates of your monitor.
