Dear Mr. Meissner,

as I described under step 1, I first made the kernel update with a reboot
afterward.
In step 2, in the system console, I compiled and installed the NVIDIA drivers
under kernel version 2.6.34.8-0.2, as I did it all time, when a new kernel
release was installed. After this I made the second reboot, to boot the kernel
within the new NVIDIA driver.
Step 3 describes the result, which is a kernel error while initializing the
driver by kdm.

Apr 30 09:14:34 bigbro kernel: [ 195.491709] nvidia 0000:05:00.0: setting

The result which was expected (here with kernel version 2.6.34.7-0.7) was :
Apr 30 09:40:35 bigbro kernel: [ 38.250697] nvidia: module license 'NVIDIA'
taints kernel.

May be, NVIDIA has to fix the bug, which appears with kernel 2.6.34.8-0.2.
