Arrrgh! Apparently SuSE is being "helpful" by changing your filesystem on you.

You should have the following files, all in /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/:

extensions/libglx.so (should be a symlink to...)
extensions/libglx.so.1.0-4191
drivers/nvidia_drv.o

Then, in /usr/lib, there should be:

libGL.so (a symlink to...)
libGL.so.1 (a symlink to...)
libGL.so.1.0-4191
libGLcore.so.1 (a symlink to...)
libGLcore.so.1.0-4191

That should be it, at least from the GLX package.

If your symlink keeps getting deleted, it may work to hardlink the libglx.so.1.0-4191 file, or it might work to copy it. I have a feeling that you can get rid of that libGLcore.xxxx.nv_glx one, but you probably want to move it somewhere else temporarily instead.

With the file comment, I meant run file /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so.1.0-4191. That will print a bunch of info on what kind of file the libglx.whatever is.

I believe there is a way to use some of SuSE's distro-specific tools to set this up (I believe there's a switch2nvidia_glx script somewhere, for example), but I've never used SuSE, so I don't know how to do that.

Maybe a search for switch2nvidia_glx would turn something up? It would have to be a distro-specific how-to...
