scripts.

does this mean, i can install latest kernel from
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Kernel:/stable/standard
or from
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Kernel:/HEAD/standard
and then the nvidia driver's kernel modul is automatically rebuilt after the
kernel is updated?

Yes, that's the feature of the NVIDIA packages for Tumbleweed. ;-) Actually
this feature was the requirement for TW ...

i ask, because currently i frequently update kernel from above repos and then
reinstall nvidia driver manually with the .run package from nvidia.

This should no longer be required with these packages.
