    Proprietary Nvidia 173.14.36 graphic driver with Nvidia NV34 / FX5200 graphics device on openSUSE-12.3 and 3.7.x (and newer) kernels.

    This blog entry provides an explanation of one way to get the proprietary Nvidia 173.14.36 graphic driver working with a Nvidia NV34 / FX5200 graphics device on openSUSE-12.3 and/or 3.7.x (and newer) kernels.
