Before you continue, you need kernel-sources package installed, If you did not
install it, use yast (it has a text mode, so your not working X is not a
problem) to do so.

With kernel-sources installed:
1. Boot (or switch) to runlevel 3
2. login as root
3. #cd /usr/src/linux
4. #make cloneconfig
5. #make prepare-all
6. #nvidia-installer --uppdate -f

This will contact the nvidia site and download the latest version of the
driver, and will recreate the needed kernel modules.

If you already have downloaded the latest driver ( from nvidia), just
rerun the installer, it will recreate the modules.

When you are ready, just #init 5 will put you in runlevel 5. This should work.
