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


(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
Leap packages). But the kernel module is also being rebuilt and
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).

Unfortunately, once installed there's no way to go back.
Perhaps something that could be improved (if nvidia agree), is to have at
least two version of the driver.
So in such case, impacted users can downgrade easily.

btw: screen locker crash here too.
