Installing NVidia drivers to SuSE 10.0


Little problem installing nvidia drivers in my SuSE. I tried to install from YOU and it did work, kinda. But when I try "glxgears" command I only get about 1000 FPS while in Gentoo and after installing drivers my FPS was whooping 10k. Any idea what to try.

The downloaded drivers from nVidia don't display properly when I try to install them. It doesn't clear the screen when new text appers and old text stays on the screen and the new text just prints on top of the old making it very confusing.

Idea what to try?

SOLVED: After a while testing the setting I got it to work properly. Not sure though as the glxgears demo rolled slowly and the gears bended but the FPS was 15k or something.

15k? I get 1113 and I'm pretty happy with the performace! Wolf ET works in full detail on 1024x768 perfectly, no freezes, nothing. GLXGears is only a theoritical test. It can be taken as a benchmark, but the real performance is another thing...

yes, mine old computer had 200 fps and with the drivers update it gave the about 1k fps. I just bought a new computer so my fps values are "bit" higher

Gotta try with some game to check that my drivers work perfectly.

I'm also having some glitches after installing the nVidia drivers.

I am using suse9.1 running KDE. Since installing the new drivers, I am unable to use the graphical 'Switch User' command and have it actually work. Instead, it asks if I would like to create a new session on screen 2. When I click 'yes', it blanks the screen for a couple seconds, then returns back to my desktop.
