    with

    Code:
    Linux version 4.14.14-1-default (geeko@buildhost) (gcc version 7.2.1 20180116 [gcc-7-branch revision 256737] (SUSE Linux)) #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Jan 17 09:26:10 UTC 2018 (eef6178)

    Thank you, xorbe. Also worked for me (the hard way) for snapshot 20180201 and the 4.15 kernel

    Thanks, I took the 4.15.1 plunge with 20180206 due to your success report, and 390.25 still works unsurprisingly.

    Fyi, it is reported that kernel 4.16-rc1 is currently incompatible with nVidia 390.25 driver. (Tumbleweed is only offering 4.15.2 currently, but just a heads up.)

    After the last zypper dup from the repo Nvidia these 390.25 drivers have arrived, and they do not work, I have passed the hard way with Nvidia384.111.run
    Tumbleweed Release: 20180210
    Kernel Release: 4.15.2-1-default

    It might help to add your user to the "video" group. (and maybe the user "sddm" as well, if you are using sddm as login manager)

    The problem is known meanwhile and will hopefully be fixed soon...

    Thanks for the answer, but these are things I've already done.
    Lately the Repo drivers fail often, so I keep two Nvidia.run drivers in the / home

    Well after adding the sddm to video it's working. But it's slugish, window animations are all gone. Not that this is important, it just gives you a sense that something is broken underneath.

    You need to add your user to the "video" group as well.

    Rpms for Nvidia driver 390.25 are broken. Today's zypper up on Leap 42.3 left me with black sddm screen (only cursor visible). I had to uninstall all 4 rpms then mkinitrd then reboot and zypper rm drm-kmp-default. Afterwards I went "hard way" with nvidia installer.
    Please fix this issue.
