Summary: Can't login into KDE4 with nv opensource driver
Product: openSUSE 11.1
Version: Final
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Critical

Opensuse 11.1 comes with opensource driver for NVIDIA card installed by

For my hardware it seems to be broken because I can't login into KDE4. It
simply comes back to login screen short after it tries to start KDE4.

I previously reported this problem as comment #8 in bug 450893
( but at that time I
didn't know what is the cause.

I still could log into KDE3 but in KDE3 I noticed that sysinfo:/ didn't work.
Of course, sysinfo displays some information about graphic card so I came to
idea that this might be different aspect of the same issue.

After installing nvidia proprietary driver all problems have disappeared.

I rate this as critical bug because default setup (if KDE3 is not installed)
simply does not work and user have hard times to figure out how to fix it.

Here is info about my hardware:
