"proprietary" nvidia driver seems to be opensource now.

Really? How did you determine that? That would be quite big news.




the nvidia repo is:

http://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/leap/42.1

and in YaST, thechnical datas:

nvidia-computeG03 - NVIDIA driver for computing with GPGPU
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I'm not sure, but I think that is a driver for doing computations on the
GPU (maybe with CUDA, OpenCL or whatever it is called). It is not the
graphics display adapter driver.
