    Their is no force composition pipeline in
    /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

    When I run the nvidia-xconfig - it says their was no config file to begin with, so It creates a new one. System hangs at boot, and going into a tty console makes the monitor flash like a rave so I have to try to get in from the grub.
    I have a similar, perhaps identical, issue on my machine. My output:

    The installation of Leap 42.3 appears to have defaulted to the integrated graphics (identified as Intel UHD Graphics 620 when the machine is booted into Windows). This may be the cause of the machine running hot when booted into openSUSE Leap 42.3. Anyway, I want to use the NVIDIA graphics (identified as nVidia GeForce MX150 in Windows).

    What do I change, and how, to do this?

    There appears to be no graphics configuration available under YAST. Like mattinthehat I have tried running nvidia-config with the same disastrous results - I could only recover by doing a snapper rollback.

    The nvidia G04 drivers are already installed (with drm-kmp-default removed) but they are not used since the nvidia graphics system seems not to be used. The Info Centre: Graphical Information: OpenGL shows the driver as OpenGL version 3.0 Mesa 17.0.5 from VMware Inc. - this is presumably the driver for the integrated graphics which Leap 42.3 defaults to.

    I think, this is only supported by Bumblebee, not the normal Nvidia Driver.

    Again, it seems the nvidia driver is active.
    I'm guessing you need to investigate Sauerland's answer.

    There appears to be no graphics configuration available under YAST.
    In a terminal:
    Code:
    nvidia-settings

    OK. I have followed the instructions for setting up Bumblebee as in Sauerland's answer and link and restarted the machine.
    I tested to see if Bumblebee was working by running

    Code:
    optirun --status
    and I got the messages:
    [ERROR] The Bumblebee daemon has not been started yet or the socket path tatus was incorrect
    [ERROR] Could not connect to the bumblebee daemon - is it running?

    If I now run run hwinfo -- gfxcard I get the output:

    False alarm! I had not configured bumblebee in bumblebee.conf correctly. Running optirun --status now produces the desired message.

    Default Re: Nvidia Drivers not configured properly

    Hello,

    I add myself to the queue on the issue: I get the same issues of nvidia-settings telling me to run nvidia-xconfig and nvidia-xconfig subsequently bringing me to a flickering TTY where I can barely manage to login. Fortunately by loggin in as root and deleting xorg.conf the x server suddenly starts up and the pc is functional again.

    I will add that my pc is not an optimus one, it's an old Asus with a GeForce 710M. I don't want to risk breaking anything by installing bumblebee...

    Drivers are correctly installed (I got
    nvidia-gfxG03-kmp-default after checking compatibility on nvidia's website) and they're also correctly recognised and loaded since the hwinfo gives me this:

    but the PC still runs on the integrated graphics (output of lspci -vnn | grep VGA):

    Code:
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller [8086:0166] (rev 09) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
    


    What should I do? Should I try installing bumblebee as well? It does not make sense since my laptop is not an optimus one. Any other solution, given that I tried everything in this thread except going bumblebee?
