Summary: Find a place to host NVIDIA/ATI kmp (+video) packages
Product: openSUSE 10.2
Version: Alpha 4 plus
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Critical
Priority: P5 - None
Component: X11 3rd Party

The good news here is that we already have a solution for openSUSE 10.1 (after
SLE10 has been released). Due to the common (kernel) code base you can use the
packages for SLE10 hosted by ATI/NVIDIA also for openSUSE 10.1.

And now the bad one. Since ATI/NVIDIA is concerned about needing to support
drivers, which are hosted by them, it is *very* unlikely, that they will host
RPMs for non-SLE product, because of the big driver matrix

(n * openSUSE) X (o * driver_version) X (p * kernel_release)

Therefore I suggest to host the RPMs for openSUSE > 10.1 on another server.
packman might be a candidate for this.

I've set this to critical, since the question, if we'll provide ATI/NVIDIA
driver packages also for openSUSE > 10.1 comes quite often on the openSUSE
mailing lists.

It's nice to see we have these packages available for internal use, but it's
even better to see a solution for our customers. SCNR ...
