Default No 3D acceleration with 8178

I've installed NVIDIA drivers many times before but this one has me lost. Issue is the driver is installed but unable to enable 3D acceleration. "sax2 0=nvidia" appears to run as normal but after reboot there's no NVIDIA logo prior to seeing the log-in screen and direct rendering is not enabled when running "glxinfo". I do see "NVIDIA X Server Settings" listed in "Applications/System/More Programs/" though the left field in the box is blank under "NVIDIA-Settings Configuration". Has anyone experienced this with driver 8178?

Test system:
CPU: Intel P4 3.2 GHz Hyperthread enabled
RAM: 2.5 GB PC3200
OS: SUSE Linux 10
Desktop: Gnome 2.12.2
Graphics: Geforce 6600 GT

In your xorg.conf your driver is "nv":
Code:
Section "Device"
  BoardName    "GeForce 6600/GeForce 6600 GT"
  BusID        "1:0:0"
  Driver       "nv"
  Identifier   "Device[0]"
  Option       "XaaNoOffScreenPixmaps" "on"
  Option       "XaaNoPixmapCache" "on"
  VendorName   "NVidia"
EndSection
Change it to "nvidia".

Thanks, missed that. It's possible the issue relates to the Gnome update in SUSE Linux performed after the installation. I've also noticed an issue with YAST Control Center not opening with it's shortcut unless I log in as root from the terminal so it's more likely that is the cause.

Output from glxgears:
30771 frames in 5.0 seconds = 6154.200 FPS
62152 frames in 5.0 seconds = 12430.400 FPS
62106 frames in 5.0 seconds = 12421.200 FPS
62293 frames in 5.0 seconds = 12458.600 FPS
62127 frames in 5.0 seconds = 12425.400 FPS
62235 frames in 5.0 seconds = 12447.000 FPS
62148 frames in 5.0 seconds = 12429.600 FPS
62312 frames in 5.0 seconds = 12462.400 FPS
