suse needs different configuration than the other distros, I know that mdk9.1 works perfectly with the driver. (the single cpu standard kernel)
is it the same hardware (video card, mobo)?
give us the log file with the right config file.
with a standard config file from mdk with just nv changed to nvidia, it should work perfectly.
what is exactly the problem you have? blocking completely? just exiting? weird lines, characters?
