User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de; rv:1.9.2.16)
Gecko/20110319 SUSE/3.6.16-0.2.1 Firefox/3.6.16

After kernel update to Version 2.6.34.8-0.2 the NVIDIA driver, neither in
Version 256, 260, nor in 270.41.06 can be loaded. It dies with the following
kernel-message:
Apr 30 09:18:40 bigbro kernel: [ 34.985528] alloc_vmap_area: 3 callbacks
suppressed
Apr 30 09:18:40 bigbro kernel: [ 34.985530] vmap allocation for size 16781312
failed: use vmalloc=<size> to increase size.
Apr 30 09:18:40 bigbro kernel: [ 34.987480] NVRM: RmInitAdapter failed!
(0x26:0xffffffff:1050)
Apr 30 09:18:40 bigbro kernel: [ 34.987491] NVRM: rm_init_adapter(0) failed
Apr 30 09:18:40 bigbro kdm[6955]: X server died during startup
Apr 30 09:18:40 bigbro kdm[6955]: X server for display :0 cannot be started,
session disabled


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yast2 online_update and reboot in runlevel 3
2. compile and install with sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-270.41.06.run driver and
reboot
3. System comes up without X11-grafic, just with console text interface and an
error message like above in /var/log/messages.
Actual Results:
The result is no X11, no kdm and no KDE is working. You must go back to kernel
version 2.6.34.7-0.7, to get your system working.

Expected Results:
With kernel version 2.6.34.8-0.2 just console text login.
Back to kernel version 2.6.34.7-0.7 KDM login and KDE are working again.

I have not tested it with x86_64 kernel, just with the 32 bit kernel.
