No luck.  Running NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7167-pkg1.run without flags results in 
not being able to find the kernel source, so I added the --kernel-source-path 
parameter, and watched the system lock up when the compile was 100% complete.

I also did a chmod 700 on the file which made no difference.  When I checked 
ownership, th 7167 version of the file was owned by root:root, and the 
earlier version was owned by sgrover:users.  Seeing as I have seen the 
earlier version work, I tried to chown th 7167 version to sgrover:users - no 
difference.  I tell you, this is VERY frustrating - so much so that I've 
taken to getting KDE compiled on Gentoo (on a spare drive).  If that works 
properly, I'll probably just move away from Suse (at least until a fresh
