Default Re: Geforce 6200, no success with nv or nvidia driver.

i am having nearly or exactly the same problem:
i am running Suse 10.1 freshly installed from the mid-October remastered source.
the kernel is 2.6.16.21-0.25-default
cpu is AMD64, graphics card is GeForce 6200. the mobo is brand new with the latest bios.
all works fine with the nv driver.

i have installed the nvidia driver from NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-9629-pkg2.run. i have also tried using the tiny-installer. in each case the compiling and installation proceed without difficulty, but upon starting X my screen goes black. when i ssh in i find that X has grabbed 95% or more of the cpu.

i have tried booting with acpi=off and with the glx line commented out of xorg.conf. results are the same as before in each case. i do not have a line referring to NvAGP in xorg.conf so do not know how to do that experiment. in version with the glx line removed i managed to run nvidia-bug-report successfully. results attached. i would appreciate any advice or suggestions on how to go from here. thanks.
