OK, 190.18 is now WORKING under openSUSE. It does NOT work with openSUSE 11.1 in any form (KDE 4.1.3 or 4.2.4). However, I am now testing openSUSE 11.2 Milestone 4 and the 190.18 driver has installed and is now crunching away on GPUGrid.
Now exactl;y WHAT in the old openSUSE 11.1 distro was causing the 185.X and 190.X series to choke…I dunno. However, openSUSE 11.2 Milestone 4 is working correctly (so far). If I run into any other problems I’ll let you know.
Well, openSUSE 11.1 is kernel 2.6.27, I think openSUSE 11.2 is 2.6.30. I seem to recall an issue with how openSUSE handled carriage returns when I was installing the SDK for CUDA, but I have no idea if that is the cause of the problem in the 185/190 series. I tried Fedora 11 yesterday, got frustrated with the extreme lack of root access (i.e. none, but I could modify stuff by typing in the root password, I just couldn’t log into the box as root.)
