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
booting the new kernel.
No need to boot into textmode first to reinstall the nvidia drivers any
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?



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.
