Just one addition : Don't delete the unpacked nvidia driver sources after
installation. If you install a new kernel version, you can run
./nvidia-installer -aK -k <new kernel version>
to build the nvidia kernel driver module for the new kernel version
before
booting the new kernel.
No need to boot into textmode first to reinstall the nvidia drivers any
more.
Good tip. I was not aware this was possible.

As regards the <new kernel version>, is this one obtained from "uname
-r"? On the Pc here, it is "3.11.6-4-desktop".

Would the command be ./nvidia-installer -aK -k 3.11.6-4-desktop?

Regards.

Hey Sudhir, for 3.11.x aka current kernel in 13.1 you can just add the nvidia
driver repo from Yast/Software Repositories/Community.

331.38 is there already. No need to manage all of the above posted.

Just add the repo, install nvidia-gfxG03-kmp-desktop package (for newer NVIDIA
cards) and you're set.
