This is the GLX extension and the nvidia dummy driver modules for the Xserver.

your gonna have to post more info than that:

1). are you using nvidia's drivers from their website

2). do you have the glx module loaded in you X config file:

3). what is the output of glxinfo?

4). open up you /etc/X11/xorg.conf (or may be named XF86Config-4 if Suse is still using xfree)

and go down about 3/4 of the way and tell us what driver is currently in use ( under the section "Driver" "???")
