In the scenario of a zypper dup, no. ALL old repositories should be
removed or disabled.

I did not use zypper dup.

I (a) disabled all third party repositories (b) booted from an instal
DVD (c) performed the upgrade.

I have now installed just the G02 package

"the package"? There are two, and you need them both.

nvidia-gfxG02-kmp-<kernel flavour> and x11-video-nvidiaG02

Make sure you reinstalled them both and removed the corresponding G01

, removed /etc/X11/xorg.conf,
reran nvidia-xconfig

Don't. Just leave xorg.conf off the system. In 99.9% of cases, it's not needed
