Install problem with latest factory-Kernel for openSUSE11.1
there is a problem in the latest openSUSE 11.1 factory-kernel 188.8.131.52-3 from http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...nSUSE_Factory/.
i tried to install latest nvidia-driver 180.22 on an opensuse11.1 x86_64 system.
former kernel 184.108.40.206-1 had no problems with this.
but this time, it was not possible to load nvidia kernel module.
the installation-script stopped, and told me that the built kernel module can't be loaded.
there were also warnings about missing symbols at compile time.
this is the relevant part of dmesg-output when loading the driver:
nvidia: Unknown symbol pv_mmu_ops
nvidia: Unknown symbol pv_cpu_ops
nvidia: Unknown symbol pv_irq_ops
nvidia: Unknown symbol pv_lock_ops
it seems, the above symbols are missing.
this was not the case with 220.127.116.11-1.
i had to downgrade kernel to latest available 18.104.22.168-9 from oss-repo.
with this version building the nvidia driver also was no problem.
does anybody know anything about this error?

i need help, please!
does the new 180.25 fix this?

Re: Install problem with latest factory-Kernel for openSUSE11.1
VERY VERY STRANGE!
it works for me now!
yesterday i installed latest 22.214.171.124-5.1 from
and then i copied the files ".config" and "Module.symvers"
from /usr/src/linux-obj/x86_64/default/ to */usr/src/linux/
then i went to /usr/src/linux/ and made "make prepare" and "make
then i did the usual "./nvidia-installer"
and that's it.
it worked this time!
WHITHOUT CHANGING ANYTHING AT THE NVIDIA-DRIVER!
so the problem MUST come from something inside the 126.96.36.199-2.1 from monday!
or it was the "make cloneconfig" i did yesterday and the missing file
Module.symvers in /usr/src/linux/.
or the guys at suse/novell changed something in latest 188.8.131.52-5.1.
