    Code:
    efibootmgr -v
    Oh, and I'm guessing power supply is ok for the card (400Wmin and 120W for the card) and you have connected the 6-pin power plug to the card?
    typing
    Code:
    efibootmgr -v
    
     gave this:

    Hi Ed
    Ok so it is booting in non-secure, Ub* is booting in secure mode....

    At the black screen can you press ctrl+alt+F2 and get to a tty login?

    No. The system does not react to this key press when i have booted with the 4 nvidia rpms installed and received a black screen.
    shortly after boot the monitors tells is gets no signal anymore.

    Hi Ed
    OK, so if you (at grub) press e to edit and on the linuxefi line add nomodeset at the end and boot. I'm guessing the screen comes up, maybe at low resolution? The G05 drivers are the ones installed? Maybe an issue with the building of those rpms.... Can you try the G04 driver and see if that works?

    The G04 drivers give a clean boot and the screen comes up.
    But they are not meant for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 card I have. Playing the (wine) game Elite Dangerous makes the program crash.

    And the nomodeset' at the end of the boot line (when G05 drivers are installed) leads to a blank screen.

    Hi
    I suspect secure boot vs no secure boot with the G05. See herein the secure boot section: https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:NVIDIA

    But my machine is not securely booted, is it? You said so in your post at 22.05 yesterday
    Anyway, installing the NVIDIA drivers the hard way works, when using 440.100 (it does not work wit 450.66).
    Now I have been doing the hard way for ages and it it is a way to get things done.

    Hi
    Yes, (just check again with the efibootmgr command), I would try the import or disable validation. Maybe something is still lurking.

    I install the hard way here... no issues seen with either Leap or Tumbleweed.

    Is used this command:

    sudo mokutil --disable-validationIt asked for my root password twice and things looked OK.
    I moved /etc/X11/xorg.conf to a backup
    Rebooted.
    Installed G05 drivers again.
    Rebooted.
    Blank screen.
