Problems with Nvidia and SuSE 8.2


Here goes the printout when I run 3Ddiag, lets see if it gives anyone any hint as to what I'm doing wrong... I've installed the drivers with no error messages and on reboot the Nvidia splash screen shows before loading KDE 3.1



3Ddiag version 0.691
Verifying 3D configuration:
Using 3dinfo
************************************************************

Verifying 3D configuration based on XFree86 4 for 3D board
"nVidia Corporation GeForce DDR (10de@0101)":

and here goes my XF86Config file, (by the way it's v. 4.x yet I have no XF86Config-4 file as I have seen people talk about...

running dmesg from a console provides me with this info:
0: nvidia: loading NVIDIA Linux x86 NVIDIA Kernel Module 1.0-5336 Wed Jan 14 1

which clearly tells me that nvidia is loading properly, or so I guess. Now the question would change to:

Exactly what problems are their with nvidia and SaX2 using KDE 3.1???
