If the answer is only with Novell kernels then the problem is not with
nVidia but with the (Novell) kernel; but if the disablement will apply
in all "versions", so to speak, of the kernel then nVidia will have to
amend its code to account for the disablement of paravirtualisation
(which is basically what I tried to state in an earlier post).

as it seems, the error does not come from disabling paravirtualization.
i think, the error comes from a faulty "make cloneconfig" which produced a
faulty .config file.

as i wrote in a post yesterday, i once again installed latest kernel.
this was updated yesterday.
this time, i did NOT call "make cloneconfig" in /usr/src/linux.
i copied the .config file from /usr/src/linux-obj/x86_64/default/
to /usr/src/linux/
and i also copied the file Module.symvers from there to /usr/src/linux/
after this i went to /usr/src/linux/ and only did "make prepare" and "make
after these steps, the nvidia driver installed perfectly without any problems!

so i think, the kernel i installed on monday either had a broken config, or a
broken Makefile or something like this.
and therefor the nvidia-installer ran into some trouble.

no matter what or how it was, the problem WAS NOT the nvidia-driver or

ok, it is a proprietary driver, yes.
and many people don't like this.

BUT in this case, the problem was NOT on the nvidia side!!!!
