Default /dev/nvidia0 bug?

I am running an amd 64 4600+ with pci-e 7600GT nvidia card. Using opensuse 10.2

I go to install the drivers and they compile fine and it installs then when I go to run sax2 I get a message saying it can't start X and to check my log at /var/log/Sax.log and toward the bottom of that log it shows

NVIDIA: could not open the device file /dev/nvidia0 (input/output error)

I've googled this for the past 4 hours and tried chmodding the nvidia* files in /dev and everything anyone else has suggested I have also tried 3 different drivers. Last time this happened when I restarted to try to boot my system it just hung and I had to reinstall! so I'm not going to restart i'm just leaving it as is so I have shell access. Please HELP. Thank you very much for your time.

-Richard
