Just curious. Wasn't it the case that when a kernel update was done for
openSUSE, eventually a new nvidia rpm that matches would make an
appearance? Was that the case? If so, is it still the case?

As long as the ABI stays stable and bug fixing doesn't require an update
the weak update mechanism handle this.

As the result the /lib/modules/3.1.9-*/weak-updates/updates/nvidia.ko
sym link points to /lib/modules/3.1.0-1.2-default/updates/nvidia.ko for
example in the case you're runnig your system with the default kernel
flavour.

Cheers,
