[opensuse-factory] Tw Video Drivers, was: Will we have additional repositories for Leap as we have currently?
* Howard Guo <hguo@xxxxxxxx> [10-20-15 09:15]:

It is misleading to say that Nvidia proprietary driver does not work well on
Tumbleweed. I've never had any trouble with it.

This morning I edited the Tumbleweed portal and NVIDIA-the-hard-way pages to
get rid of the misleading information.

Kind Regards,

The _exact_ reason Tumbleweed doesn't recommend using proprietary

On TW, Plasma5 doesn't work with the default driver (nouveau); it only
works with the proprietary nVidia driver so not recommending the use
of proprietary drivers means not recommending the use of Plasma5.

...or not using an NVidia GPU. :-)

And I have been using nVidia proprietary drivers forever, only
experiencing problems when kernel changes required changes to the driver
install package.
