Default Istalling NVIDIA Linux graphics drivers on SUSE Linux 10.1

It is nice to see a repomd repository for the nvidia driver (too bad I cannot use it because I do not run 2.6.16), but there is a problem:
Code:
$ rpm -qlv x11-video-nvidia
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root    root               17 Jun 23 04:50 /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1 -> libGL.so.1.0.8762
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root    root           543564 Jun 23 04:50 /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.0.8762
$ ls -l /usr/lib/libGL.so.1
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 12 2006-08-01 11:46 libGL.so.1 -> libGL.so.1.2
$ rpm -qf libGL.so.1.2
Mesa-6.4.2-19.7
So, it does not work right away because Mesa is in the way. And, I suppose mesa will be so evil (it did that to me in the past) that if you upgrade it, it will reset the libGL.so.1 link to libGL.so.1.2, therefore deactivate NVGL and make all GL apps crash with SIGSEGV. Well, it is not much of a surprise to me; it sounds logical that the x11 nvidia driver (nvidia.o in /usr/X11R6/somewhere...) requires NVGL rather than some softgl.

Is there a way to get around this symlink conflict with Mesa? Maybe have a talkback with bugzilla.novell.com?

The normal procedure is to use "Online Update" and then select "download NVIDIA driver".
This will automatically perform the required actions.

Actually on 10.1 the "official" way is to use the built in tiny-nvidia-installer program.

Can you please explain what & where this is as I've not heard of it.

I've manually installed the latest driver, but got a message about this symlink during install ('Error...this is not a symlink etc) and am not happy with performance.

Thx

There's something wrong, but anybody know what.

It clearly doesn't work properly, I installed with YOU and with the tiny-nvidia-installer, it doesn't work properly, it's slow, not good as on previous SuSE versions.

Default Re: Istalling NVIDIA Linux graphics drivers on SUSE Linux 10.1

I have just moved to 10.1 and am seriously thinking about going back to 9.3
I can't get the driver to build and I have tried clonecofig and other things short of compiling it myself. It always worked on 9.3 ... (Card is a GeForce 6600GT, driver is the latest although I tried an older one with the same non-result)

Can anyone see anything "obvious" in this mess:

phertel, you'll need to use the latest (1.0-8762) driver.

Yes I found it last night and everything works like magic now.
I thought I had the latest until I found something by "sticky" talking about a patch
