Continuing problems

I run SuSE9 used to work perfectly, up untill YOU decided to
install a new kernel, and Xfree.....since then I've had loads of problems.

I've managed to get 3D to work again, on my G4 TI-4800SE, and Glxgears runs
at appr. 6500 FPS.....a sign that hardwareaccelaration is fine and working?
Even though 3Ddiag fails at finding my driver(see below). I've looked
through /var/log/nvidia-installer, and everything looked fine.

But why am I still not able to use Mplayer in full screen mode? it just uses
the same screensize for the filmclip, and puts a black frame around the
picture....both when pressing "F", and when setting fs=yes in the config

Any hints?
