X11 with nvidia proprietary drivers on openSUSE-12.1 in conflict kernel module

Yesterday I installed nvidia's proprietary drivers from within yast from the respective community repository, and restarted rcxdm thereafter. No, I didn't reboot the machine then. Everything seemed fine then.

This morning I booted the machine after its nightly sleep, and I launched this:
root# rcxdm start
And that failed, saying this:
[   317.548] (EE) NV: The PCI device 0x10de06e9 (GeForce 9300M GS) at 01@00:00:0 has a kernel module claiming it.
[   317.548] (EE) NV: This driver cannot operate until it has been unloaded.
[   317.548] (EE) No devices detected.
root# rmmod nvidia
root# rcxdm restart
Success. Not really fixed the problem, but at least I know my way around.
