    Hi
    If it's just a rebuild (last two numbers) unlikely, if a version change, likely. In Leap it's just likely to set a lower resolution at boot (well that's what happens for me in GNOME), I just switch to a tty, login as root, drop to runlevel three, rebuild the driver and switch back to runlevel 5 and all is good.

    https://www.if-not-true-then-false.c...vidia-guide/4/

    My notebook just zypper dup'ed to 15.2 and transformed to a paperweight... So I should migrate to fedora now?

    I tried to follow the instructions there (uninstall the nvidia repo G03 rpms for 15.1 then run the nvidia340-installer and rebootet (multiple times). When trying to start an X session (startx or display manager) the notebook freezes. Something's missing.

    Any help appreciated. In the meantime I'll try this patch thing although the installation went fine without error messages.

    you can try to remove the nvidia G03 and install noveau, it should work.
    I'm using it. OpenGL is not working, I miss the cube animation, but the system works.

    best regards

    Otherwise you have to patch the Nvidia 340 driver for kernel 5.3 from Leap 15.2.

    Or your System isn't fully upgrade to Leap 15.2?
