-Preloaded systems come with RPM installed nvidia driver; this should be uninstalled first before installing <nvidia>.run driver. (See how to uninstall nvidia RPM driver)

  1. Start SUSE Linux.
  2. In a terminal window, use the su (switch user) command to obtain root privileges.
  3. Copy l7kv07us.run file to the hard drive, for example, /home/drivers directory.
  4. Type init 3 to run in console without the X server.
  5. Change directory to the location where you saved the file.
  6. Type sh l7kv07us.run to install the driver.
  7. Type nvidia-xconfig
  8. Type init 6 to reboot

How to Silent Install the Driver:

1. At runlevel 3 run sh ./l7kv07us.run -s -X

  • Note:
    • -s = silent installation
    • -X = configures xorg.conf to use nvidia driver

      • X11-video-nvidiaG01-lenovo-xx
      • nvidia-gfxG01-lenovo-kmp-smp-xx_yy
    • Note:
      • xx = refers to the driver version
      • yy = refers to the kernel version
  4. Run rpm -e <x11-video-nvidiag01-lenovo-xx> <nvidia-gfxg01-lenovo-kmp-smp-xx_yy>
Determining which version is installed
