Tried upgrading my home Linux KDE today. Not much of of update that was but since the wind of change was already blowing into my system, I thought of updating my NVidia driver as well.
Well it worked... YaST said there was a newer version, I selected it, installed it and failed. There was no way to start X again with Sax2 complaining about amissing screen configuration. Then I did two things.
- Started YaST in text mode and removed all nvidia software
- Started X again without 3D support
- Had a good look at The SuSE linux users Nvidia howto"
For everyone else into the same kind of trouble my suggestion is Think before you click and the all time classic.RTFM.
