    Out of curiosity I downloaded and installed the Drivers Nvidia 390.12 .run and work well with the 4.14.9 kernel

    390.12 also just built on my box with Tumbleweed snapshot 20180104 and the 4.14.11-1 kernel, too.

    Disaster
    I installed with the --dkms option, but did not rebuild anything with the new Kernel, from the console I tried to rebuild the Driver Nvidia.run, but it goes into Kernel Panic.
    I tried then with the repo Nvidia, but it does not work
    Uninstall dkms and try again, now I'm with IceWm and I'm still trying from the console.

    I had to not install the Kernel4.14.11 otherwise it went into Kernel panic when compiling the Nvidia.run drivers.
    The repo does not work and I would say that this Kernel update policy is a failure

    Might be related to the latest security fixes.
    Try the "nopti" kernel option (or install kernel 4.14.12).

    See also:
    http://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1074869
    and https://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-.../msg00091.html

    But then, I'm not so sure that nvidia is going to work at all with kernel 4.14.11 (and 4.14.12?):

    Well, it's the point of Tumbleweed to always get the latest versions of everything, including the kernel.

    It was always recommended against using Tumbleweed if you rely on (proprietary) 3rd party drivers.

    IMHO, you should rather blame nvidia for (still) not supporting the opensource driver development...

    Although, that should apparently not be a problem with the latest nvidia beta version (390.12), according to previous posts here and this recent mail on the opensuse-factory list:

    Let's see what happens in the next days, currently I can use Tumbleweed only with the Kernel 4.14.9 and the Drivers Nvidia.run 390.12.
    I am the tip of the iceberg, and I arranged, I guess how many that have not managed to get by and right now they are cursing Tumbleweed or Nvidia

    Well, the kernel panics I mentioned are related to the latest security fixes and not specific to nvidia, although they only seem to affect *some* systems.
    (and Leap may be affected too, no idea)

    My opinion regarding TW/Nvidia: People that would be cursing Tumbleweed because of problems with the nvidia driver should probably not have been using it in the first place...
    Again, it was always strongly discouraged to use TW when relying on proprietary 3rd party drivers (not only nvidia), and still is.
    You can, but you're on your own and have to expect troubles.

    Yes, there's an nvidia repo for TW now too, but if the driver doesn't work with a new kernel, it doesn't work. The maintainers do tend to add patches to prevent problems, but things happen, and they cannot magically fix all possible problems in advance either.

    What brand CPU on 42.3 on AMD FX-6300 latest did not cause problems. The kernel patch addressed both Specter and Meltdown. AMD only had to deal with one attack vector Intel two
