      Notes:

      -You need to install Kernel development (Kernel Source code) and C/C++ Compiler before installing the Video driver. (See how to install Kernel Source and C/C++ Compilers)

      -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
      Uninstall

      Uninstall <nvidia>.run

      1. Start SUSE Linux
      2. In a terminal window, use the su (switch user) command to obtain root privileges.
      3. Type nvidia-installer --uninstall
      4. Type sax2 -r
      5. Go to Computer > Shutdown, and select Restart Computer.

      Uninstall nvidia RPM package:

      1. Start SUSE Linux
      2. In a terminal window, use the su (switch user) command to obtain root privileges.
      3. See what RPM package is installed.
        • -Two rpm packages should be uninstalled:
          • 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

      In a terminal window, type nvidia-settings -q NvidiaDriverVersion to display the current version of nvidia driver installed in the system

      *Determining if 3D is enabled:

      In a terminal window, type nvidia-settings -g | grep OpenGL and confirm OpenGL vendor string indicates Nvidia Corporation.

      Example:

      • OpenGL vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
      • OpenGL renderer string: Quadro NVS 140M/PCI/SSE2
      • OpenGL version string: 2.1.1 NVIDIA 100.14.27
