Would this be the equivalent of having nomodeset in Grub?

    I can't even remember what modeset is about, it's been so long since I even had to give any thought to whether or not it is in use.
    The modprobe file 50-nvidia-default.conf was only missing after upgrading to to G06 drivers and restoring it allowed the G06 driver to be loaded after rebooting.
    Sorry if this is an obvious question but are you rebooting? If you've restored the G05 Nvidia drivers and your previous config files then you should be where you started before upgrading to G06.

    Obviously this is an NVidia driver issue. The NVidia kernel driver doesn't load, therefore the NVidia X driver can't load, while preventing use of the Nouveau X driver, but allowing fallback to the crude FBDEV X driver with 1024x768 screen resolution.

    Any *.conf in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ or /etc/X11/xorg.conf affecting NVidia GPU graphics put there by NVidia driver installation must be eliminated for Nouveau or Modesetting X drivers to function. For proprietary NVidia driver installation, I suppose these should be eliminated as well prior to attempting, if success is to be expected. I would expect NVidia driver removal according to NVidia driver installation and uninstallation instructions would explain whether this is the case.

    Well if no amount of tweaking and tinkering has a chance of solving the problem because it's a problem with Nvidia's software, then I guess there's not much point in trying to draw any kind of lesson from this. I had a look for case-insensitive matches of nv or failed in dmesg (that's what's meant by the "system's kernel log" isn't it?) but "failed" didn't appear on any of the lines which had anything to do with nvidia. I didn't recognise anything as signifying an error on lines relating to Nvidia, though. Here's a sample of what I'm talking about, in case anyone is curious:
    Code:
    [    9.894169] audit: type=1400 audit(1653646353.789:4): apparmor="STATUS" operation="profile_load" profile="unconfined" name="nvidia_modprobe" pid=524 comm="apparmor_parser"
    I guess the sensible thing would be to just wait for 15.4 to be released and install G06 packages during the installation process. Then, if the Nvidia driver still won't behave in a completely clean install, just repeat the installation process with G05 packages instead.

    Oh well. At least I fouled up my GPU install right before the release of a new openSUSE. Thanks to everyone who tried to help.
