The SuSE shipped (boxed) kernel was compiled with an earlier gcc, so if you update to gcc-3.3-43, /var/log/nvidia-installer.log will tell you your kernel was not compiled with the gcc you currently have.
The only solution is to recompile the kernel, reboot with option "init 3", then the NVidia kernel will build and install.

The latest nVidia driver that one is to install from nVidia after the kernel update just posted and installed by YOU, is NOT usable and WON'T install!! I hope SuSE is working on this, as 3D is "GONE" because of this error. Some have very slow systems now.
