We install openSUSE from our own image made with KIWI. We always have the
nvidia driver repo enabled when we make these images so the nvidia driver is
always there from the start. I suspect that you had the nouveau driver, which
is the default one gets with openSUSE. This is because nvidia will not let
distros distribute their drivers. So there is always the step you did to get

There are Nouveau and NVidia drivers listed in the distro. I tried
switching them a few times. It was only yesterday that I tried the
Nvidia repository with 12.x, but had used it with 11.x and earlier.

AMD Athlon 4000 64 bit CPU
