Default 1.0-9755 openSUSE 10.3 Alpha2 problem

A couple of files don't get installed to the right places, so you have to go into the extracted directory /usr/src/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9755-pkg1/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/ and copy nvidia_drv.so to /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/

Next go into /usr/src/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9755-pkg1/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/ and copy libglx.so.1.0.9755 to /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/
Also in /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/
"ln -s libglx.so.1.0.9755 libglx.so"
I didn't have the problem initially, it appeared after updating opeSUSE 10.3 Alpha2 packages, they both get installed under /usr/X11R6/lib/ so are not found when Xorg 7.2 starts. A friend has also hit this problem, but I've seen nothing on the openSUSE factory list.

Please attach the installer log, and provide the output from the following commands:
pkg-config --variable=moduledir xorg-server
pkg-config --variable=libdir xorg-server

thanks,
Lonni

# pkg-config --variable=moduledir xorg-server
/usr/lib/xorg/modules
# pkg-config --variable=libdir xorg-server
/usr/lib
This is where they end up.

Default Re: 1.0-9755 openSUSE 10.3 Alpha2 problem

After a recent 10.3 update I noticed the same happening and at one stage I got a message saying it couldn't overwrite /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so. The Xorg 7.2 install contains a file of the same name that is not a symlink, so next time I shall delete that and nvidia_drv.so (also from Xorg 7.2) to see if it will create both files under /usr/lib/xorg - it doesn't create libglx.so.1.0.9755 either. With the Xorg driver glxgears only give around 184 fps while the NVidia one gives around 1400 fps.
