NVIDIA Driver 96.43.16 (2010.02.11) not in repo

NVIDIA Driver 96.43.16 released on 2010.02.11 is not in the SUSE Studio NVIDIA repo, but is available at NVIDIA’s site.

SUSE Studio’s NVIDIA repo’s version of this driver is presently at 96.43.11-25.1. Is 96.43.16 to be added to the repo soon?

Release Highlights:

  • Added support for X.Org xserver 1.7.
  • Improved compatibility with recent Linux kernels.
  • Updated nvidia-installer to detect newer Debian distributions that use /usr/lib32 instead of /emul/ia32-linux as the 32-bit library path.

You should be able to add the nVidia repo to your studio project to work
around this.

Oh, do you mean nVidia has a SUSE RPM repo outside of SUSE’s NVIDIA repo? Where/how would I add that, please?

Yes, the standard nVidia repo for openSUSE is actually hosted by nVidia.
See http://en.opensuse.org/NVIDIA_drivers for info and links.
