Thanks for the info on the drivers. I have just installed them and my glxgears FPS has jumped from 1250 to 1500 !?!?!. When ran it the aliasing effect made it look like it had ground to a halt, just as I was about to curse nVIDIA, the fps popped up (takes 5 secs for the first measurement).
>> Im wondering whether we'll have to wait for SuSE to produce their own RPMs for this; its a shame 'cos I tend to hold Nvidia's support in high regard.
SuSE don't build or distribute their own RPMs of nVIDIA's drivers. If you were to update your nVIDIA drivers with SuSE's YOU, then YOU would download the drivers for you from nVIDIA.
