Installing Driver for Nvidia 6600 GT on Suse 10, 64 bit
I have some strange effects when trying to install the Nvidia driver on my system. After first install of Suse, I installed the driver via Yast online-update - worked without problems, 3D functionality included. I had problems with Suse and ACPI and therefore installed again with boot-option ACPI=off. 3D did not work anymore - neither by installing via YAST (fetchnvidia.sh) nor by manually install of the newest drivers.
When I'm running binary install, the words are mashed together, the screen is mixed up. The installation seems to work though - on first sight. No warnings, and xorg.conf is updated in the section "Device" (from "Driver nv" to "Driver Nvidia"). I installed driver 8178 with Patch (but same result with different drivers).
Sax2 stops with an error when running "sax2 -m 0=nvidia. SaX.log says:
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the GLX module; please check in your X

In Xorg.0.log I found:

What am I doing wrong here - any ideas? Any more information I could provide? Thanks in advance for your help!
