I've pretty much followed raynett11's and nvidia readme instructions and got it to work without hand fiddling any config files. quake 3 runs like hot butter now. however i do not get any 800x600 to work. seems i have to dig into the config for that.

probably more to do with the monitor settings that the video card. These are also stored in XF86Config though

So I ran ldd and found out that the program I was having problems running is not using the correct libraries. libGLcore.so.1 => .usr.lib.tls.libGLcore.so.1 So I was wondering how I change this to be the nvidia ligGLcore. The same is true with libGL.

Everything else is working great.

Rename the offending copies of LibGLcore and LibGL. Then run ldconfig and check again.

I rename the libGLcore and the libGL then I run ldconfig and they are back again. So ldconfig is creating those files, i guess. I am still having the same problems though.

I actually changed the name of the whole tls directory and this solved the problem.

suse 9/nvidia-screen

I have a toshiba laptop, it comes with the nvidia. I have followed the instructions given, and I did get some video, I mean I can work. The problem is that I am not having video in the whole of the screen, there is a part, a horizontal black frame at the right end of the screen where there is no video at all, it is like the screen ended before and that part is not being recognized as part of the display area. For the rest it is ok, I can work, games work fine, etc etc. So ho can I solve thsi problem? besides well there is the fact that I am not really getting quality video... the video is not so good (I mean it is a good graphic card). suggestions? thanks

for starters it is not a good graphics card because it is a notebook. second post some specifics.

post your XF86config file and run /sbin/lspci and put output here.

nvidia

If you grab the nvidia drivers and RTFM!
Theres a specific SuSe README.

you run the
nvidia.blah.blah.run
or whatever,
then do someting like:

sax2 nvidia=0

and it sorts it all out.
It worked on my desktop and laptop.
