Default Problems with SuSE 8.1 and 4496

I'm runnig SuSE 8.1 on a Toshiba Satellite 2410-404 (GeForce 4 mobile Graphics Chip). Today I updateted the KErnel from the SuSE FTP-Server and after this I had to install the new nvidia drivers. I did this like it is discribed in the SuSE nvidia HOWTO (ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/sup...ler-HOWTO.html) using sax2 to activate 3D acceleration didn't work. Using my old XF86config did work, but sax2 claims that the 3D aceleration isn't activated. Also when I try to start for example tuxracer I get an error message that there is no hardware acceleration. If I ignore this message tuxracer will start and the performance is fine. So I'm not sure whether the acceleration is activated or not.
As far as I can see the glx extensions are loaded without any error.
Any idea what's wrong?

your XF86.log shows no errors, so everything should be fine.

type in a xterm or konsole 'glxinfo', if you get some output, everything is really fine ;o)
