I’ve installed the nvidia driver from the Nvidia repo (, ending with the following nvidia packages:

Hyorinmaru:~ # rpm -qa | grep nvidia

Hyorinmaru:~ # rpm -qa | grep suse-prime

Once I try to switch prime-select shows the follwoing error:

Hyorinmaru:~ # prime-select nvidia

ERROR: Unable to query GPU information

Reconfiguration failed
Restoring previous configuration: undefined

dmesg output:
lsmod output:

Any help would be much appreciated.

For now, if you want to use G05 driver set, revert back to kernel 5.7.*. The driver hasn’t been built for kernel 5.8.0. yet.

Well yes, that is a pretty good reason for it not to work.
Interesting thing is that I also tried with suse-prime-bbswitch and that claimed that the switch was done, but in reality it did not take effect. Will wait for it to be finished, thank you!
