    Default NVIDIA driver, Boot freezes before login

    If I have the Nvidia driver installed from the community repo the system is freezing just before the login prompt would normally appear. I have removed the driver and reverted back to the nouveau driver. This causes a different problem, during login / logoff there is some pretty bad screen corruption that occurs. Possibly related to this. https://mail-index.netbsd.org/netbsd...msg045946.html

    The other oddity is if I try to install the driver using zypper dup after adding the repo it offers the wrong driver for the card. The right version for the video card is 340.102.

    nvidia-computeG02 304.135-16.1 x86_64 nVidia Graphics Drivers obs://build.suse.de/Proprietary:X11:Drivers
    nvidia-gfxG02-kmp-default 304.135_k4.4.76_1-16.1 x86_64 nVidia Graphics Drivers obs://build.suse.de/Proprietary:X11:Drivers
    x11-video-nvidiaG02 304.135-16.1 x86_64 nVidia Graphics Drivers obs://build.suse.de/Proprietary:X11:Drivers

    If I go into yast and click switch vendor on the Nvidia repo it then wants to install the right driver. This is the driver I am having problems with, and is currently removed since the boot into the DE doesn't complete with this driver installed. Anyone have any ideas on this one?

    The other thing is that this driver was working correctly until recently.

    Code:

    Solved it for now, the proprietary driver from Nvidia works, the one from the community repository does not so I'm going to go with the proprietary driver.

    Glad you solved it for now. Hope the community driver gets fixed soon.
