    Sometimes you need more than described in some wiki.

    For deleting nouveau drivers uninstall all, but libdrm_nouveau2.

    You cannot worsen my days with your posts more than local statesmen are achieving - I'm living in Russia.

    I understand but as a "non professional" user, I think I may expect that the official documentation draws my attention to this sort of problems...

    See:
    NVIDIA drivers on Opensuse
    The so called better version
    The Optimus page

    Not really helpful for a new TW-installation since last week, don't you think?

    jep, programmers are faster than writers

    it should be no problem to have nouveau installed when the kernel-module is disabled in some .conf-file in /etc/modprobe.d "blacklist nouveau"
    if starting x fails after install nvidia, i always check the modules (lsmod). if there is nouveau present, disabling nouveau has failed.

    just for me, i am buying amd/radeon as gpu since a while, cause they are much better supported in linux general. nvidia is sort of , especially with older gpus

    While every effort is made to build them, at this point there is no guarantee to have all additional modules available in openSUSE Tumbleweed like for example, VMware or VirtualBox. And while the Packman Tumbleweed Essential repository attempts to deliver them there is no guarantee they will always succeed due to the incompatibilities with the quickly advancing Linux kernel. The problems with proprietary graphics drivers are similar and there is no guarantee they will work tomorrow, even if they do today. If you don't know how to compile your own additional kernel modules and you don't wish to learn or keep a very close eye on what is being updated, please don't use Tumbleweed.
