Default NVidia TNT2 and SuSE 9.1/Fedora 2 hang up in OpenGL apps

Tried out SuSE 9.1 and Fedora 2 on a dual processor Dell Precision 420.
This has a 32MB RIVA TNT2 graphics card. Installed latest NVidia driver on
both OS's (1.0-5336). NVidia splash screen appeared ok, and everything seems to
be working until I try to run any OpenGL application.
When I start, e.g. tuxracer, the machine completely freezes. I have to hit the reset
button. This was all working in SuSE 9.0.

Anyone seen this?
I know the card is getting a bit old now, but I'm stuck
with the machine for another year.

Thanks,

Michael

Try changing the nvagp mode in sax2, the option is in the graphics card advanced options. just click nvagp and try value from 0 to3, what the values are is in the nvidia readme.

Setting nvagp to 3 didn't fix it. Setting it to 1 did.

Thanks,
