Summary: default user has unsufficient privileges for nvidia
3rd party driver
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 12.3
Version: Final
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Major
Priority: P5 - None
Component: X11 3rd Party Driver
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: rommel@xxxxxxxx
QAContact: sndirsch@xxxxxxxx
Found By: Component Test
Blocker: ---


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 ...
