    There is a Tumbleweed subforum here. Why didn't you post there? More change that fellow Tumbleweed users read it.

    No updates? I had a lot of them this morning, amongst which......a new kernel. That would break the NVIDIA driver. When running Tumbleweed and running into graphics problems, first check this. Can you post the output of
    Code:
    uname
    -a ? And run
    Code:
    glxinfo | grep direct
    and post the output as well.
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.

    ° Perfection is not gonna happen. No way.

    No updates from now (not working situation) and previous (working situation), I'm running tumbleweed but disabled automatic updates and tabooed kernel, when I have time to risk I use SAKC :-))
