Default SUSE 9.0 and 5336 install

This may have been covered in another forum, but I will pass this on anyway. This was the third driver I have installed since SUSE 9.0 came out. For some reason, it botched completely. I place no blame on NVIDIA or SUSE, I think it was just a matter of writing the same files over and over, or some such vagary of the bits.
No matter I did, nothing would fix my install. I could not get X to load the GLX libs, and I was getting frame buffer performance. The long and short of it, after a couple of hours of key-banging, I uninstalled the NVIDIA drivers. I then went into YaST, uninstalled my vid card, set it back up again, and logged out. I then re-installed the NVIDIA driver. It was fscking magic!
I picked up 121 frames per minute on glxgears. My frame rates in Armagetron went sky high. And my America's Army performance was smoother than ever.
Sometimes youjust have to quit trying to fix things, back up, punt, and play the next down. Thank you NVIDIA for the great Linux drivers, and the continuing development.
