Default Archive for SuSE rpms?

I'm running SLED 10 and just inadvertently updated my driver. The problem with that is the fact that I don't have the kernel that matches it. Sadly, YaST isn't giving me the option of reverting to an older version like it has in the past. So now I need to find an older version of the drivers so I can reinstall them without losing my graphics after a reboot.

Does anyone either a) have older versions I could get from you or b) know where I can find them?

What is the problem with updating everyting (driver and kernel) using Yast?
Did you get a driver from another source than Novell/SuSE?
I would think the most recent kernel and driver are always in sync within SuSE's own distribution servers.

The driver came from download.nvidia.com/novell/sle10/i586.

One would think that if nVidia has a driver for a recent kernel release then the kernel would be on the Novell patchlist. However, in my exprerience, nVidia releases thier drivers before Novell releases its kernel. I'm not sure why that is the case.

Ok, apparently the situation is different for SLES.
I use SuSE Linux Professional and there the driver and kernel are both offered on the Novell/SuSE server and are always in sync.

But, this also means it is always an old version. So I get the installer from NVIDIA and install that outside the Yast system. Unfortunately that means that whenever I install a new kernel via Yast, I have to re-install the NVIDIA driver after the reboot.
You could do the same thing. I.e. remove the RPM and use the installer. That should always work, with the above limitation/inconvenience.
