Trying to install GeForce 8600 XT driver in novell Open Enterprise SUSE 11


Hi

I'm trying to install a GeForce 8600 XT card into novell Open Enterprise SUSE 11 so that I can get the 3D Cube to work. It currently does not work with the default nvidia card onthe motherboard.

I can not find the correct driver for the GeForce 8600XT card. Can someone identify the driver I should be using please? Then if someone could also direct me to the "How to install a Video Driver" tutorial, that would be most appreciated.

UPDATE:
I've downloaded the correct drivers but it still says that my hardware does not support Desktop enhancements etc ... I think the GeForce 8600 XT just doesn't support 3D accelleration ... period.

Can someone suggest a reasonably priced video card that is easy to install and which supports 3D Accelleration please?


Regards,

You can get drivers easily from the nVidia website, at http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

Select the card, then Linux (either 32 or 64 bit). With the driver, you'll also see the instructions on how to install it.
