Summary: default user has unsufficient privileges for nvidia
3rd party driver
Product: openSUSE 12.3
Priority: P5 - None
Component: X11 3rd Party Driver
Found By: Component Test
When using the NVidia 3rd party driver I found that the default user (the one
that I added during the installation of the product) has unsufficient rights.
GL applications report that they can't operate /dev/nvidiactl.
With GNOME x86_64 I was even unable to start gnome from GDM (got a blank screen
with a mouse pointer).
Both of these issue could resolved by adding the user to group video.
I think this should be the default as this driver is quite common/required
these days ...
