This problem doesn't occur in either 10.0 (or the betas or 10.1 alpha)
Also 9.2 was fine (with the Nvidia driver from the site).
With 9.3 you can get it working --and it's fine until you use YAST or install any software -- once something gets linked then the next time you start X it fails.
9.3 Runs really fine and stably on a Laptop and other desktops --it's just these 2 desktops with the wretched Geforce Fx5200 card that have this problem.
As one of these desktops is only a server I can live without X on it but It sort of annoys me that I can't get a good stable production release to work properly.
10.0 however gives a strange problem -- Starting X is no prob --but it fails to quit properly when you LEAVE X (I always start at run level 3).
CTRL-Z will give the console prompt back again -- no big deal problem but it sort of removes the 100% polished finish from the release --especially if I'm trying to convince people that switching from Windows is no big hassle.
