Hi

Since today there are updated NVIDIA gfx driver RPMs available for
Tumbleweed. Feel free to give them a/another try by adding the repository
manually via

zypper ar https://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/tumbleweed
nvidia-tumbleweed

(if not created yet) and install them via

zypper inr

(or "zypper up", if already installed)

The kernel module is being built during installation (as it's done with the
Leap packages). But the kernel module is also being rebuilt and reinstalled
after a kernel update has been done, since we don't necessarily keep the
kABI stable for TW. This has been implemented by making use of RPM's
trigger scripts.

Issues fixed in this update:

- gdm could not be started


Known issues/limitations:


There was a package update to 384.69.
Don't install it if you're using KDE. It causes segfaults in
kscreenlocker_greet (the process that spawns and asks for your password when
your session is locked).
