Well this weekend half of my raid 0 failed. ONE DAY BEFORE MY BACKUP...<br />
So to say at best, i was devastated. For the next month or so, im going to be running suse 10.1. Since it's been well over a year since i have done any linux work, im gonna need help, first things first though. Nvidia drivers...

Latest nvidia driver <a href="http://www.nzone.com/object/nzone_downloads_linux_display_x86_1.0-9625.html" target="_blank">here</a>.<br />
<br />
You need to be root to install and you'll have to stop the x server.<br />
<br />
FIRST, save the file in like /home/user/<br />
that way its easy to find.<br />
Atl+F1 then log in (or ctrl+alt+F1) that takes you to text mode.<br />
<div class="bbcode_code">
<div class="bbcode_code_head">Code:</div>
<pre><code>init 3</code></pre>
</div> to stop X<br />
then navigate to the folder the driver is in: ex) cd /home/<userid>/ (it'd be better if you moved it to /home/<userid>/bin though maybe)<br />
then <div class="bbcode_code">
<div class="bbcode_code_head">Code:</div>
<pre><code>chmod +x NVIDIA blah blah</code></pre>
</div>then <div class="bbcode_code">
<div class="bbcode_code_head">Code:</div>
<pre><code>sh NVIDIA blah blah blah</code></pre>
</div>then the install for the driver will start.<br />
<br />
Also before that make sure kernel source is installed. Just use YaST to find out/install if need be.

I'm going to try the Yast method first then maybe do it from command line if all else fails. I'm running the amd64 version and i can't get flash to install.

</div>You cannot install the driver via YaST, Novell no longer includes them. And the X server cannot be running when you install thats why you kill it with init 3. <br />

What browser are you using?
