Opensuse 11.3 x64 X server freeze with driver 256.53
The X server hangs very often at startup. It stops with the NVIDIA logo for a long time (several minutes). The Xorg.log trace at that point is "Loading extension NV-GLX".
This happens both with the drivers downloaded from the opensuse repository and those from the NVIDIA page.
If I replace the driver with version 195.36.31 the problem is solved. This is happening since version 256.35.
I already get rid of the nouveau driver, put the nomodeset boot option, etc. The only solution is to install the old driver.
The card is a geForce 8500GT, kernel 184.108.40.206-0.3-default. Do this happen to somebody else?
