I was not aware this was the case, thinking that to install Nvidia driver
required both kernel-source and kernel-devel. I removed kernel-source and
Nvidia drivers installed without any problems.

As kernel-source package has been removed, hopefully zypper's file conflict
check should run much quicker.

Thank you for your tip.

Regards.

Does VirtualBox still work without the kernel-source?

VirtualBox has no need for the kernel source. If you need to build the modules because you are using something other than the default, then 'sudo /sbin/vboxconfig' is the command you need It will install the appropriate VB host or guest source, gcc, and kernel-devel for your kernel and build the modules.
