I am currently testing out LEAP 15.2 on my Lenovo T480 with Optimus iGPU+Nvidia Mx150. I noticed that the nvidia-*04 drivers from (https://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/leap/15.2) is not compiled with Kernel 5.3.18-lp152.36-default.
For the time being I am using nvidia-*05 drivers which seem to work, but is this something that will be expected to be patched either from Nvidia or the next LEAP kernel?
After September 1st update for the Nvidia driver, neither G05/G04 works on the LEAP 15.2’s kernel 5.3.18.
I have to ask… Is the kernel/Nvidia driver repository maintenance going to be like this for the duration of LEAP 15.2’s lifetime? I mean, LEAP 15.1 still works fine, and it had “hiccups” which normally last less than a week. It seems like I will have to maintain my own drivers if this continues.
I understand, but it’s just a bit weird because based on the posts in this particular forum, there has been issues weekly with Nvidia and LEAP 15.2 pretty much since release. I can understand this from TW, but not on LEAP.
New bug… It looks like the latest repository Gfx05 was made with OpenGL/OpenCL that is not compatible with the latest LEAP 15.2 kernel…

This turns out to be likely due to some permission issues related to bumblebee, for some odd reason, no problem running things off Nvidia card as root, but as a user… resetting permission didn’t quite work… but I will keep that off of this thread.
