Welcome to the fun world of YAST.
I had the same problem several times, I finally gave up. I am of the mind that using the "online update" to update the kernel breaks things. As a matter of fact PClinuxOS did the same thing. Maybe its a RPM problem?
I am guessing the problem is dkms isn't starting at boot.
Try setting your video to vesa when you boot.
Either by video=vesa or xmodule=vesa that should let you boot without trying to use the nv kernel.
