thanks to wolfi323 nvidia driver works well .
but i want a backup solution and a rich one not a poor one as the one with a vesa driver .
i assume the current version of nouveau does not support my new geforce 730 then i need an update of nouveau.
wolfi323 advises to use the kernel of the 13.2 for the 13.1 according to get an update of nouveau
but when finding a solution i want a minimalistic solution because i fear of side effects.
i found a solution here https://wiki.freedesktop.org/nouveau/openSUSEPackages/
and here http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/X11:/XOrg/openSUSE_13.1/x86_64/
is there someone who experimented this update ?
Well, this repo contains the latest Xorg packages for inclusion in Factory/Tumbleweed.
It can break any time, although it should be stable most of the time.
I’d definitely would not recommend to use that repo when wanting to use the nvidia driver, as it always might take a while until the nvidia driver supports a freshly released Xorg version. IOW, keeping your Xorg to the latest version might break the nvidia driver at any time!
And the nvidia driver packages are only intended to be used with the kernel shipped with your openSUSE version, although as the kernel module is compiled when you install the driver, it should work provided that you install them after you install the kernel. But if you ever install a newer kernel, you’d have to reinstall the nvidia driver again.
All in all I think it’s not worth the (possible) trouble.
If you really want to get nouveau to work (which only fully works if you completely uninstall the nvidia driver anyway btw), I think a better idea would be to upgrade to 13.2 than to upgrade the kernel and the Xorg stack, in particular when you want to still use the nvidia packages.
