this issue has to be fixed in any way, BEFORE
becomes some day the official next opensuse-kernel or the official
update-kernel for opensuse11.1.
Step back and think about this statement for a moment. Please realize
that the nvidia driver is closed source and we have absolutely _NO_
control over what they do in their code. For their driver to be
yes, of course i know that.
controlling the direction of the opensuse kernel seems
to be exactly
no, of course not.
you are absolutely right!
I understand that people get upset when their
violating driver breaks, but why not talk to the people that create that
driver instead of asking people who can't do anything about it?
at the time the problem occured, i didn't know, from where it came from.
i updated kermel like i alwas do.
i installed nvidia-driver like i always do.
there was no problem in the past with that.
kernel 18.104.22.168 worked perfectly with nvidia 180.22.
and changing the kernel to 22.214.171.124 and installing the same nvidia 180.22 driver failed.
so, of course, i thought of a problem in the latest kernel.
ok, there have been made changes in 126.96.36.199 which are incompatible with nvidia driver.
and the nvidia guys have to fix this.
but as i said, it will not be good for us all, if this will not happen before this new
kernel becomes some kind of "official".
because in this case many many people will update to the latest official kernel through
online-update or base-installation and will have black screens when using the proprietary
i hope this will not happen.
einen schönen Tag noch
