Re: [tlug] NVIDIA Geforce 9600GT driver on opensuse

Thanks for the responses, Ryu and Godwin. Unfortunately, just when you
think you've given fool-proof advice, a bigger fool comes along. I really
don't understand what you are telling me to do.

And I for the confusion caused about "compiling a kernel". I didn't. Nvidia
offered to do so because it said it needed to do that to be able to set up
the driver. I just clicked "OK". I have no idea what is going on.

I'm sorry to have to admit it, but I don't know what that means.

The driver is offering to re-compile, so I assume the version
would be the same since it is being compiled prior to driver

Thanks for the resources, Ryu. I'll check that out.
