    I am happy to present my bash script S.A.N.D.I., SuSE Automated NVIDIA Driver Installer which is written to work with DKMS - Dynamic Kernel Module Support to allow the automatic installation of the nVIDIA proprietary Video Driver each time you upgrade your Kernel version. What DKMS does is to recompile and install any DKMS loaded driver against the running kernel each time a new kernel version is loaded. DKMS only works with ...

  3. systemd and using the after.local script in openSUSE 12.1/12.2/12.3

    by , 12-Nov-2011 at 21:25 (James' openSUSE Bash Scripting (and other things) Blog - Your Comments are Welcome!)
    I have found out that in openSUSE 12.1/12.2 and now 12.3, some startup scripts do not operate due to the usage of systemd. systemd really speeds up system startup by running the many startup processes in parallel and avoids the usage of shell scripts altogether. That is is good for speed, but not good if you are in need of running something in openSUSE as root when the system is restarted. In my case I was trying to run some VirtualBox mount commands in a VM running openSUSE 12.1/12.2/12.3 and ...

  5. Bash Scripting - How would you like to Learn?

    by , 29-Sep-2011 at 17:38 (James' openSUSE Bash Scripting (and other things) Blog - Your Comments are Welcome!)
    So it has been suggested that I consider starting a blog on Bash scripting. I have spent a far amount of time lately
    working on and posting bash scripts here in the openSUSE forum in the hope that you might find something useful to you.
    I don't think such efforts would make me any sort of bash scripting expert, but what if our goal is to help each other
    instead of just one master showing everyone else how it is done? In fact I have said more than once here in the forum
