--- Comment #19 from Stefan Dirsch <sndirsch@xxxxxxxx> ---
Yet another option would be to add Conflicts tag with nvidia package.

I can add Provides/Obsoletes to the NVIDIA KMP, so this won't trigger any
needed user input during installation. Of course if the customer decides to
uninstall the NVIDIA RPMs again, drm-kmp-default won't be reinstalled
automatically.

But it won't help if user installs the nvidia stuff manually.

We can add this to the documentation. Release notes and

Also, another concern is the conflict with AMDGPU-pro package...

Well, I'm not aware of any customers yet, who tried to install these packages.
;-)

As a quick "fix" for nvidia, we can change the depedencies on Leap to match
SLE > and only install drm-kmp on Intel & AMD. This won't help though with
AMD's Pro > driver.

I also thought about removing the NVIDIA Device IDs from Supplements of
drm-kmp-default, but it would be a regression for many people not knowing to
install the drm-kmp-default package manually. And there are also hybrid
machines (Intel+NVIDIA), so for these this won't help anyway.
