Default No direct rendering - 9500 GT/180.22 openSUSE 11.0

I have installed 180.22 for a GeForce 9500 GT. I see no errors, but if I run glxinfo I get the following:
name of display: :0.0
display: :0 screen: 0
direct rendering: No
server glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
server glx version string: 1.4
server glx extensions:
<snip>
I have checked everyting I know to check, and all looks well. Without this, I cannot run enhanced VMware clients that work on openSUSE 10.2/GeForce 8600 GT/169.09.

BTW, the glxinfo also gets a Memory fault as does glxgears (maybe unrelated).

I have attached the nvidia-bug-report.log and also sent a copy to linux-bugs@nvidia.com.

Any help will be greatly appreciated,

Dennis

To follow up, I figured something had to be screwed up with the libraries. I had seen that others have had problems with the MESA libraries, so I removed the RPM. Looking with nvidia-settings, I now had:"direct rendering: Yes". So I tried glxinfo and it said libGLU was missing, but progress had been made.

I then re-installed the Mesa-7.0.3-35.1 RPM followd by the x11-video-nvidiaG02-180.22-4.1 RPM. Now everything works as expected.

I hope this will help someone else.

Regards,

Dennis
