    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?

    Thumbs up Re: Nvidia G03 for Leap 15.2

    Hi,

    thanks for the hints. After some more back and forth (but basically running the patched installer letting it configure everything as default and reboot several times) it works again. Just in case someone has similar problems, here is the lspci of my builtin graphic card and the relevant commands.

    Code:
    # lspci | grep VGA
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GT218M [NVS 3100M] (rev a2)
    # uname -r
    5.3.18-lp152.50-default
    


    Code:
    systemctl set-default multi-user.target
    reboot
    Code:
    zypper rm nvidia-gfxG03-kmp-default nvidia-glG03 nvidia-uvm-gfxG03-kmp-default
    mkdir nv.tmp && cd nv.tmp
    wget https://nvidia.if-not-true-then-false.com/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-340.108-patched-kernel-5.8.run
    chmod +x NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-340.108-patched-kernel-5.8.run
    ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-340.108-patched-kernel-5.8.run
    Code:
    systemctl set-default graphical.target 
    reboot
    Is there some automation I can use to let it do whatever is necessary after kernel updates, similar to what the nvidia repo did?

    Maybe a warning is in order here: the code above downloads a script and patched binary kernel module code from the internet and runs this as root. Generally not a good idea, but what choice do you have now?

    I wrote two scripts and run them as root after kernel update:

    First named systemreboot:
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    
    systemctl set-default multi-user.target
    reboot
    That enables init3 and reboots the system.

    After rebooting (in text mode) I login with root and root-password and execute a script named nvidia-install
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    
    #change to the directory where nvidia driver is stored
    cd /home/stephan/bin/nvidia/
    
    #execute the script
    ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-455.45.01.run -a -q
    #./nvidia-installer
    
    #Execute a custom script
    #./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-455.28-custom.run -a -q
    
    #wait for purge-kernels.service
    top
    
    #change back to RunLevel 5
    systemctl set-default graphical.target
    
    #reboot the system
    reboot
    top is only because purge-kernel-service running longer as the nvidia-installer. So I wait that purge-kernel-service has ended.

    both scripts are stored in /usr/local/bin.

    Maybe dkms is also working, I do not know.
