Sounds like you don't have the nVidia drivers installed.

When the computer boots up, does the nVidia logo appear on a white background for a moment, then switch back to the default SuSE background?

The nVidia driver does that to let you know that it's loaded.
If the logo doesn't appear, there's your problem.

You need to start YaST Online Update (entering root's password) and start the update.
When you get to the list of updates, scroll down till you find an entry that says something like "Download NVIDIA(r) Graphics Driver" and click on the box beside it, then click on the button that says "Update" or something like that.

You will have to restart your computer (or at least the X server) to be able to use the hardware accelleration that Blender needs.

If the nVidia logo does appear during startup, then you don't need any of what I just said and I have no idea what your problem could be.

Yes nvidia is installed (with splash logo) and I have accelerated graphics. using xorg. Blender gameengine works fine.

Check if you have the right permissions to the video card.

I posted this problem on the nvidia linux forums
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=60106
manni from nvidia reproduced the results but found that the current testing drivers worked ok.So apparently it's a nvidia driver problem. He says it should work with the next release. I will file a bug report with nvidia
