Make sure you reinstalled them both and removed the corresponding G01

Don't. Just leave xorg.conf off the system. In 99.9% of cases, it's not needed

Okay, reinstalled the x11-video-nvidiaG02 [ which automatically pulls the other package ]. Removed xorg.conf. Made use the nouvea package was no longer installed. Rebooted.

And I end up at a tortured GNOME greeter without working keyboard or pointer. And I had the box set to runlevel 3 - it seems the *(&!@&*($^&*(@ greeter starts anyway. Since the keyboard no longer works all I can do is boot into single user mode,

Aside - on initial boot I do see a "/etc/sysconfig/network/scripts/ifup-sysctl lo -o hotplug": No such file or directory.

I then removed [again!] all the nvidia packages, reinstalled ./suse/x86_64/xorg-x11-driver-video-nouveau-0.0.16_20110720_b806e3f-2.1.2.x86_64.rpm from the DVD.

Rebooted. At least X doesn't start. :( And doing a startx just claims "No devices detected."

This is a mess.
