Since yesterday there are NVIDIA gfx driver RPMs available for
Tumbleweed. Feel free to give them a try by adding the repository manua=

I used the drivers from the Bumblebee project for the last months.
I gave the new tumbleweed drivers a try and so far they seem to work as
expected. When installing the latest kernel, they were recompiled and
still worked after the next reboot ;)
To get there, I deactivated the bumblebee repo, uninstalled the drivers,
added the repo from your mail and installed the drivers from there.

Thx a lot for your efforts.

One question, though: Do I have to care for any libs, if everything
seems to work? Just in case ...
