Default DMA Problems after SuSE kernel update


since the last SuSE kernel update (SuSE 8.2) I can't get any nvidia driver working again.
Up to now I had the
installed, without problems.
After todays kernel update I had to reinstall it and tried

The driver found no precompiled binary and was unable to compile a driver/GLX module. My system is a developer system with all nesseary stuff (compiler, libs, etc).

The older pack worked out and i was able to configure the X system with sax2, but startx stopped with an error.

XFree86 Version 4.3.0

In hte moment I run with the XFree nv driver, but GLX support is good for gaming and so on.

Does anyone has hints to this problem ?
