On Tumbleweed, I'm hitting

"Use new legacy tray in system with nvidia nouveau drivers hangs

Suggested fix from freedesktop is to downgrade libdrm from 2.4.60
back to 2.4.59 .

Can we do that?

I guess for now we can safely do this, but in the long run we'd
need a solution for this problem! Go ask the mesa devs a bit more
about it ;-)

Greetings, Tobias
As I understand it, there's a few things we *should* do here. First
off, we *should* roll back, as that's's suggestion -
instead of knowingly shipping a broken package.

So... do I need to submit an SR, or file a bugzilla bug pointing at
the other bugs... or what?

A SR to X11:XOrg (the devel project for libdrm) should be fine. CC'ing Stefan Dirsch, as he maintains that project.

The other thing we *should* do is setup some nvidia hardware in
OpenQA, so we can actually test for this as part of the Tumbleweed
process. What do I need to do to start that ball rolling?

To really test those problems we'd need an array of cards (for every vendor), as some cards may hit those problems, while others won't. Don't get me wrong i'm all for testing, but this makes a bigger task to tackle ;-)
