Knurpht has found that the new kernel 3.3 will not allow the Nvidia driver run file to install invidia in the normal way.
He has started a thread giving the workaround on this link: http://forums.opensuse.org/english/g...river-fix.html
In summary (at least for 64 bit), make an executable script file with these contents:
Notice that the last line is a call to the driver run file, so make sure you give the run file the right name and path in the last line.Code:#!/bin/sh cd /usr/src/linux make cloneconfig make prepare cd /lib/modules/`uname -r`/source/arch/x86/include/ cp -v generated/asm/unistd*.h ./asm/ # the last line (below) must contain the correct path and file name sh /root/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-295.33.run
Locate the script and the run (driver) file in the directory /root.
After the kernel upgrade (via zypper dup) reboot to runlevel 3, and log in as root. You will be in the direcoty /root. Just run the command ./nvidia.sh and the script will execute the workaround and run the driver installer (the run file).
If you want the latest driver (NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-295.33.run) it's discussed and linked by jdmcdaniel3 in the thread, or this link: http://forums.opensuse.org/english/g...ml#post2450565
