    Default Upgraded video card, now can't go to GUI

    I upgraded my video card, X300 to 7600GT,
    I can't get into the GUI,
    how do I uninstall the ATI driver and use the generic driver from openSuSE?
    how do I get back my GUI?
    oh and where can I find the driver for openSuSE?

    Some command example is appreciated.

    shit.

    Umm... yast.
    There is a command line version of Yast. Yast -i will install packages... maybe you can simply run Yast (as root of course) and find package management. I seem to remember there being an somewhat graphical version of Yast that runs off the command line (looks like an old DOS program if your more familiar with that) last time I helped set up a SuSE server.

    The nVidia driver you can get off their site, or there's probably a pre-compiled in the repositories of SuSE. Google that, you should find it.

    well I thought I could ask the experts here, I was being lazy.

    I finally back into my GUI, after setting the driver back into vesa and disabling the xgl. Now I'm back to square 1.

    In linux, it doesn't get much lazier than using YAST. XD

    In anycase, I'm quite certain that there's a precompiled driver in the repository. Just go into Yast and search for it. Actually, you might have to add an extra repository to Yast's list. I know Linva.org handles them (the drivers) for us Fedora users, I don't know who does it for OpenSuSE, but I did have to add Linva as a valid repository for YUM (Fedora's package manager).

    They have to be there though, one way or the other.
