I guess it's a problem nvidia side, e.g. you are building with the old
object refering to non-existing pv_*.

Looks like there is no bug in the Novell kernel but rather in the binary
blobs Nvidia provides.


But the OP stated that he had no trouble with the nVidia driver with the
earlier kernel; the trouble arose when he went to use the latest kernel
from Novell. In addition to this he received a response from Takashi
Iwai stating, as you can see above, "It seems that we recently disabled
paravirt on default config."

The conclusion can only be that before paravirt was disabled in the
kernel the nVidia driver worked perfectly and that if it was again
enabled in the kernel the nVidia driver would work.

The problem is pointing at the kernel and not the nVidia driver. But
what would I know.
