hi list,

i think, there is a bug in the latest factory-kernel from

at least the kernel source has a bug, i think.

i tried to install latest nvidia-driver 180.22 on an opensuse11.1 x86_64 system.
former kernel had no problems with this.
but this time, it was not possible to load nvidia kernel module.

the installation-script stopped, and told me that the built kernel module can't
be loaded.

there were also warnings about missing symbols at compile time.

this is the relevant part of dmesg-output when loading the driver:
nvidia: Unknown symbol pv_mmu_ops
nvidia: Unknown symbol pv_cpu_ops
nvidia: Unknown symbol pv_irq_ops
nvidia: Unknown symbol pv_lock_ops

it seems, the above symbols are missing.

this was not the case with

i had to downgrade kernel to latest available from oss-repo.
with this version building the nvidia driver also was no problem.
right now i am writing this mail with this setup.

there must have been some changes between and which
have something to do with these missing symbols.

does anybody know anything about this error?
einen schönen Tag noch
