the Nvidia driver needs a "patch" to compile:

If nothing happens in the next week please file a bug report and assign it to Stefan<sndirsch at suse dor com> in bugzilla.
It might be helpful if you use a dedicated thread from beginning and in particular a subject which allows an easier way to identify what the mail is about.
I don't understand and am totally bamboozled by this.... :-( .
On my 12.1 system, where I am currently running kernel 3.2.10, I just checked the above entry in conftest.sh file, within the *run file from nVidia, and it doesn't have the above patch installed and yet I don't have ANY hassles in compiling the nVidia driver - never had since I left behind the 3.1.x kernel some many weeks ago.
So what has changed in Milestone #2 (which now has kernel 3.3.rc) and which is supposed to already have the patch applied a week or so ago (according to Stefan)?
