Huh, do you use nvidia proprietary drivers? Then you need more files.
I have a script modification for that as well.
Ok I won't sweat the errors
and yes I do use nvidia graphic/video
cards... Again many thanks! Marc...
Create another directory, say "LocalRPMs_15.1-15.2-nvidia"
echo "****************** Processing oss/64"
lynx -listonly -dump -nonumbers
"http://http.download.nvidia.com/opensuse/leap/15.2/x86_64/" > 0list_1
uniq 0list_1 0list_2
grep -e "nvidia.*rpm" 0list_2 | grep -v "\.mirrorlist\|.drpm" >

Provided the nvidia 15.2 repo does exist already, I do not know.
Hi again Carlos, everyone, I fear I need to pick your brains (and all
other gurus) a little further, and I apologize for not understanding
what is going on with building kernels and their drivers... I am making
some guesses here and my communication may not be precise, be wary. I
got almost all the way and managed to upgrade the kernel and even
managed to almost get it to boot up to the point where the KDE desktop
is suppose to show up. The problem I think (BIG guess here) is that the
15.2 repo did not include the same version of the nvidia drivers that I
am using in 15.1. I installed the repo as per your suggestion/script and
noted that this new repo did not include the drivers for
"nvidia-gfxG03-kmp-default - NVIDIA graphics driver kernel module for
GeForce 8xxx and newer GPUs", and associated nvidia packages for gfxG03.
The new repo did have drivers for gfxG04 and gfxG05 packages which I
think are for newer nvidia cards. I have an older GeForce 8500.
Not knowing what to do about the fact that there was no gfxG03 packages
in the 15.2 repo I chose not to do anything and just leave the nVidia
packages as it. That resulted, when I rebooted, and got to the point
where the KDE login prompt normally appears, in that all I got was a big
fat cursor arrow that I could move around, but nothing more. No login
prompt, no desktop, nada. No error messages showed up while I watched
the output from all the system startup steps. Other than buying a newer
nVidia graphics card, any suggestions? Maybe it is not an nVidia issue
but perhaps I need other newer packages such as for the KDE destop with
Plasma? I am again just guessing, what do I know? LOL (Thank goodness
that the GRUB menu does allow me to reboot back to either the older 15.1
or 42.2 systems, where everything works as before, so I didn't brick my
computer!) Thanks again for any more suggestions... Marc....
