Did yast somehow give me the wrong kernel? It was the only kernel available for download and this was the first kernel upgrade I've done on this system. This system was freshly installed yesterday. Nothing outside of the suse distro is installed on it.
I just finished fixing the same issue on a 32-bit machine. The kernel is fine except the update does not execute mkinitrd which the reiserfs module doesn't like. Just boot off the CD into the rescue system. Create a directory in /tmp
Strange, I just tested on my private system (after testing yesterday at work several system) and did not encounter any problems. We had a first kernel out that was broken indeed but removed that and issued a new update :-(
Booting off the DVD into rescue mode and issuing mkinitrd fixed it for me as well. I have the following modules in initrd if it matters: scsi_mod, sd_mod, megaraid_mm, megaraid_mbox, and reiserfs.
The really good news is that this kernel allows me to use USB, 8 GB ram, and the nvidia driver. Everythings looking good.
