why not install the older kernel, whre nvidia will works, downgrade ;-)

I'd thought of that but I think that may cause other problems.

I emailed Nvidia support with copies of nvidia-bug-report.log along with
the output from glxinfo.

The reply was

"I'm afraid that I do not see anything wrong in your bug report that
would suggest a driver bug. You'll need to contact SUSE about this
issue, as it looks like a configuration problem with your window manager

So, something really weird is going on! I've a spare IDE drive (on /dev/
hdc and my main SuSE 10.2 is on the SATA drive /dev/sda) with Mandriva
Spring 2007 on it. I will probably try wiping Mandriva and installing the
latest OpenSuSE 10.3 Beta on /dev/hdc and see if I can get the 3D effects
back again.


Tried installing the nvidia driver as an update? :\
