NVidia / SuSE 9.0 and Asus 5200

Hey Group;

I did dowload the most recent NVidia file.run. Changed it to 755 and then confirmed the kernel "make cloneconfig" was done. I then ran the NVidia installer in runlevel 3 and it seemed that everything was installed correctly. Problem is that it seems that SaX2 and "X" (startx) locks up after the server is up. First I get the server gray screen with the big X (mouse) then comes the KDE back ground and last the startup box. It is at that point that the whole machine locks up.

As best as I can tell it is missing some "nv" driver. The "nv" comes from /etc/X11/XF86config.

This is on a NEW machine with parts - ASUS A7N7X-E, Asus FX5200 (Nvidia chipset) and a Athlon Barton 2800+.

Anyone experienced this problem?
