Default nVidia direct rendering & openSUSE 11.1x86_64 Linux.

I have installed openSUSE 11.1x86_64 Linux on PC's with nForce630a/GeForce7025 & on 9500GT based external videocard.
I have installed nVidia drivers (185.18.14 & 177.82) and added next:
"nvidia-xconfig --composite
nvidia-xconfig --render-accel
nvidia-xconfig --add-argb-glx-visuals -d 24"
But when enabling compositing with direct rendering (in kwin4) it becomes too slow...
KDEInfo gives next information on OpenGL (on nForce630a/GeForce7025 for example):
"Mame of the display :0.0
Direct Rendering
3D Accelerator unknown
Driver
Vendor Nvidia Corporation
Renderer GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a/PCI/SSE2
OpenGL version 2.1.2 NVIDIA 185.18.14
Kernel module unknown
...
Indirect Rendering
Driver
Vendor Nvidia Corporation
Renderer GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a/PCI/SSE2

...
GLX

server GLX version 1.4
...
client GLX vendor Nvidia Corporation
client GLX version 1.4
...
GLU
GLU version 1.3
..."

What is the problem with direct rendering?

In additional, on 9500GT with 177.82 drivers compiz WM GLX function does not work at all.

Please see the forum sticky posts about how to generate a bug report log file.

Default Re: nVidia direct rendering & openSUSE 11.1x86_64 Linux.

With NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-185.18.31 drivers on 9500GT card (on nForce630a/GeForce7025 its similarly):
1) GLX utility in compiz is enabled, but still in .xsession-errors there are next -
Checking for Xgl: not present.
(in openSUSE11.1 packet "Xgl" is absent at all)
& regularly -
/usr/bin/compiz-manager: line 424: 14583 segmentation error (core dumped) ${COMPIZ_BIN_PATH}${COMPIZ_NA**** $COMPIZ_OPTIONS "$@" $COMPIZ_PLUGINS
(because compiz regularly dumps)
2) when kwin4 effects enabling on KDE3 (on KDE4 I did not check in general as this DE on itself has so huge number of bugs...) with indirect rendering it becomes frozen on some seconds when bringing in the mouse at windows icons in taskbar and with direct - so bug is absent, but .xsession-errors file becomes a very huge (many GB) through some minutes of a hard work with applications windows (with indirect I didn't check this) and, for example, at rotation of a desktop cube its sides disappear.

Is it drivers error or this linux distributive error?
At what moment (on what action) You meant to generate bug report log file?

Any time after starting X would be a good place to start.
