Nvidia GTX 210 Tumbleweed

I have a Nvidia 210 Series but Tumbleweed says 400 Series onwards? What are my options, or jst upgrade my hardware? Still getting mileage outa C2D era hardware!

Eh, install the NVIDIA driver the hard way? I.e. from a downloaded NVIDIA…run ?

[QUOTE][/QUOTE]Would it break with every new kernel? I did get Leap running with 210 from repos.

I am using a GeForce 210 with the nouveau driver under Leap 15.1 and it works just fine. Is there not an option to install nouveau under Tumbleweed? Then you don’t have to bother updating with every new kernel.

The nouveau driver is in the kernel, X11 related package is installed by default

There’s no need for optional software with a 210:

I think Nvidia driver (340) does not build with the kernel from Tumbleweed, thats why this driver is not in the Nvidia Repo.
So use the nouveau.

Nouveau seemed bit janky to start off, working well now though.
