The gdm issue (gdm doesn't come up at all) mentioned below has been handled in
boo#1053115 and the culprit has been identified.

Workaround available:

I'll send fixed packages to NVIDIA begin of next week. Usually it's not a good
idea to do this friday. If issues arise due to the update, this may become an
inconvenient weekend for users, NVIDIA and me. So I would like to avoid
this. ;-)

Packages and repository have been updated. You no longer need to apply the
workaround when updating the packages.

Changes (from RPM changelog):


Thu Aug 10 14:07:01 UTC 2017 - sndirsch@xxxxxxxx

- modprobe.d/50-nvidia.conf: add also /dev/nvidia-modeset, since
with Tumbleweed gdm and X are no longer running as root and
therefore cannot create/access it (boo#1053115)


Thu Aug 10 09:39:21 UTC 2017 - sndirsch@xxxxxxxx

- %triggerin: create /run/regenerate-initrd directory, if needed
