Re: [opensuse-factory] 42.3 - How to install Nvidia proprietary video driver
I have a similar issue.
I upgraded my 42.2 to 42.3 by switching the repos (including the nvidia
repo) from 42.2 to 42.3 and doing zypper dup.
I had to agree to some Adobe stuff and to install nouveau (otherwise
zypper would just end).

Now, I have nvidia and nouveau packages installed, but there seem to be
no nvidia modules. At least I can not modprobe nvidia.
I blacklisted nouveau in /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf nad did
mkinitrd as suggested here. Still, neither nvidia nor nouveau get loaded
and Plasma complains about missing OpenGL2...

What ca I do?
Reinstall the nvidia drivers from the repo to get the module build?

I am confused about how to achieve installing the Nvidia proprietary
video driver, and what packages should I actually see when / if
Nvidia proprietary is correctly installed.

I was following the steps here


zypper addrepo --refresh NVIDIA
zypper install-new-recommends

There were no recommends (contrary to what the page appears to indicate)

I did then remove xf86-video-nouveau from Yast. There was a question I
did not take a note on, something to do with Mesa-dri-nouveau that I
accepted to pull; at that point, some nvidia packages were pulled in.

Now I have a combination of nvidia and nouveau packages:

rpm -qa | grep -e "nvidia\|nouveau"

Is this ok? I would expect to not see any nouveau there at this point.

Also now when I do

zypper install-new-recommends
The following NEW package is going to be installed:

1 new package to install.

I do not want that. How do I actually make this work without being
forced to go back?

Thanks for any advice
