And, what is the procedure without installing the latest version?

SuSE rpms already contains the driver of version 1.0-5336:

/lib/modules/precompiled/2.6.4-52-default/nvidia/gfx/nv-linux.o-1.0-5336.pre
/lib/modules/precompiled/2.6.5-7.145-default/nvidia/gfx/nv-linux.o-1.0-5336.pre
/lib/modules/scripts/nvidia/2.6.4-52-default/nv-linux.o-1.0-5336
/lib/modules/scripts/nvidia/2.6.5-7.145-default/nv-linux.o-1.0-5336
/lib/modules/scripts/nvidia/nv-kernel.o-1.0-5336


What was broken on the SuSE rpm? What can we do to repair the installation
without upgrading?

I hate to change the driver, when all kernel updates for suse 9.1 I tried
didn't break nvidia. Only this one did. What went wrong? QA?
