    You _need_ dkms-nvidia as well, as this contains the kernel module. But it should be installed automatically if you install the driver.

    You can of course specify for than one package on the zypper command line, e.g.:
    Code:
    zypper in x11-video-nvidia nvidia-compute dkms-nvidia
    Or select the packages in YaST->Software Management, you'll see immediately then what other packages are automatically selected...

    PS: I had a look at the packages, and yes, you only need to install x11-video-nvidia, the other two are required by that package and will get installed automatically.
    But if you intend to use 32bit applications as well, you should also install x11-video-nvidia-32bit.


    No, that's not necessary.
    Especially if you install the RPMs.
    I have tried with zypper, but an error occurred:

    Code:

    ...
    Why ?
    I already told you in previous post that you should omit that "x86_64". The repo URL is http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_13.1/ _without_ the "x86_64".
    zypper selects the correct architecture by itself.

    The correct command in this case would be:
    Code:
    zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/Bumblebee-Project:/nVidia:/340.24/openSUSE_13.1/ nvidia340_24
    But please, remove all those invalid repos you added ("bumblebee" probably as well according the output you posted), before continuing.
    If you need help for that post the repo list:
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    And you should always remove the repo again before adding another one with a different version. They all contain the same packages just in different versions.
    And you might have to use the "-f" option for "zypper in" to downgrade the packages (or uninstall them first).

    PS: I do hope you uninstalled nvidia-bumblebee already before trying out those other nvidia driver versions?
    If not you might again get problems.

    Every time I have installed a new dirver I have first erased the other one # zypper rm bumblebee primus dkms dkms-nvidia dkms-bbswitch The last one result is:

    But you think that the problem is with Xorg driver ? I have these Xorg installed:
