Nvidia Driver - Wayland

I recently updated to the latest version of openSUSE Tumbleweed 20230524. I am running Wayland using gnome, for some reason X.org does not let me log in at all. The Nvidia graphics card is not listed under about, only the Intel card on the Dell XPS 9520. This laptop has a Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 laptop GPU.

Under yast2 spftware management I can see the following:

What’s the best process or steps to install the drivers under Wayland?

Thank you in advance.

Is it Optimus system?

No. It is not Optimus technology.

Well, Internet suggests differently. Did you enable modesettings for NVIDIA driver?

@arvidjaar After further review appears to be Optimus Technology. The odd thing, I was able to install the Nvidia drivers before , I was able to see it in Wayland and X.org. Now for some reason can’t under Wayland. X.org doesn’t let me log in at all. Any recommendations? Any good step by step tutorial?

Probably driver is not loaded/missing.

Show logs from your system. Reboot and upload full output of (as root)

journalctl -b --no-pager --full
