Default Dire Problems With 3D Acceleration

Greetings, Everybody!

I am using an Nvidia GeForce 3 Ti 200 graphics card in a 2.0 Ghz Microtel computer with 512 Mb memory and Suse Linux 8.2 as my operating system. I know that this card CAN work perfectly well in my system because it did so with Mandrake Linux 8.2. The 3D acceleration was flawless even at 24bit color depth and TuxRacer ran perfectly at high speed. I found Mandrake Linux 9.0 to be horribly broken and flawed and I hated the "look and feel". I have switched to Suse Linux and I haven't regreted it, loving the rich look and feel of the Suse version, but I would like to use all the cool games that Suse provides.

My problem is that when I ask yast2 to implement 3D acceleration, it totally disables the xwindow system. All I get when I try to get onto xwindows is a dark screen and the only way to restore the desktop is to use the "uninstall" feature of the nvidia installer. This happens whether I use Suse's Update feature or if I directly install the driver myself. Everything works fine until I try to activate 3D acceleration and then it happens again.

I can find no flaw or error in th XFree86 configuration file nor is there any hint of trouble I can see in the XFree86 log, but it absolutely does not work if I try to activate 3D acceleration.

If anyone can help me with this frustrating problem, I would be most appreciative.

Rather then use Yast2 to enable 3d. Have you tried the switch2nvidia_glx script?
