Thread: Is openSUSE an option for me?

    Default Is openSUSE an option for me?

    Greetings,

    I built a new rig with a Ryzen 1700 CPU and a GeForce GTX 1050Ti GPU.

    Ryzen really requires kernel 4.11 or higher to work out the bugs so that excludes Leap correct?

    I would like to use the proprietary driver for my GPU so that excludes Tumbleweed correct?

    Please correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks like I may not be able to use this rig with openSUSE. I need a fairly recent kernel for the CPU and it is my understanding that Tumbleweed and proprietary graphics cards drivers are difficult to work with.

    Please let me know if there is a viable way to use openSUSE. Thanks

    An Nvidia repository for Thumbleweed was created.
    I'm using it and it works fine.

    Excellent, thanks for the information. So after I add the repository manually, I just type "zypper inr" and that's it?

    Thanks

    zypper inr worked and it is working fine now other than screen tearing.

    Will anything happen to my Tumbleweed system when the kernel gets updated in the future?

    What DE are you using? there are some work around from the internet how to to get rid/minimize screen tearing for nvidia users. I am using Gnome with nvidia driver, no video and screen tearing as far I can see.

    Mostly fine, have been using the nvidia repo for TW with several kernel updates to date.

    Well, I guess I got excited too soon. I installed Steam through the openSUSE software method with Firefox but Steam won't start. I click on the icon and it runs for about a few seconds but then nothing happens.

    Any ideas how to get Steam to start?

    Thanks
