This is because nvidia will not let
distros distribute their drivers.

It is actually because of incompatibility with a kernel license.
Kernel is for openSUSE more important then video driver, so there is no
Nvidia nor AMD proprietary drivers in our repos.

As a matter of fact, you will not find them in any distro that wants to
use Linux kernel.

Just plain wrong. As I pointed out, PCLOS has Nvidia drivers. It has
been using Linux kernels forever. It's up to 3.4.60 at the moment.


Repo that we have is actually hosted on Nvidia download server.

Blessed are the peacemakers..for they shall be shot at from both sides.
