Did you do a rcent kernel upgrade recently ? if so

Known problems:

1) OpenGL/3D applications run very slow after the kernel update

With an update to this kernel you will lose 3D hardware support for
SuSE 7.1, SuSE 7.2 and SLES7 on graphic boards which are based on the
following chipsets:

- FireGL 1
- 3Dfx Voodoo Banshee
- 3Dfx Voodoo-3/4/5
- Intel i810/i815
- Matrox G200/G400/G450/G550
- ATI Rage 180/128Pro/Radeon
- 3Dlabs Glint MX/Gamma

That's because the DRM modules of this kernel are not compatible with
DRI of XFree86 4.0.2/4.0.3. This problem can be resolved by upgrading
your system to XFree86 4.1.0. You can find SuSE RPM packages and
update instructions for this on our "XFree86 Updates" website.


2) Graphical login/X Server does not work any more

You own a nvidia board and use the 2D/3D driver of nvidia. After the
update the correct kernel module NVdriver is missing. You can resolve
this problem by downloading the SuSE RPM packages NVIDIA_kernel and
NVIDIA_GLX from the nvidia server


and installing it with the following commands:

SuSE 7.1

# rpm -Uhv NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-2313.suse71.i386.rpm --nodeps --force
# rpm -Uhv NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2313.suse71.i386.rpm --nodeps --force
# switch2nvidia_glx

SuSE 7.2/SLES7

# rpm -Uhv NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-2313.suse72.i386.rpm --nodeps --force
# rpm -Uhv NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2313.suse72.i386.rpm --nodeps --force
# switch2nvidia_glx

SuSE 7.3

# rpm -Uhv NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-2313.suse73.i386.rpm --nodeps --force
# rpm -Uhv NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2313.suse73.i386.rpm --nodeps --force
# switch2nvidia_glx
