Default NVIDIA on openSUSE 12.1 problems


I just upgraded my system to openSUSE 12.1 and after manually installing the NV drivers, I discovered a rather interesting problem.

Even though driver installation went without problems and glxinfo is reporting correct information, it appears as if my system is still using software rendering instead of hardware acceleration through the NV driver. Games are impossible to play (they render like 0.1 FPS and appear to hang), when scrolling in the browser, it gets stuck as well (the motion is not fluid at all). I even tried making an xorg.conf file but that didn't make a difference at all. I'm using a GeForce 6610 XL with the latest stable driver version 285.05.09 on Xorg 7.6

Does anyone have a clue what is going on?
