Hi Stefan, Dominique & all,

The recent kernel v4.14.9 release breaks NVIDIA driver. There's a
patch available on
https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/1028016/linux/patch-for-compiling-v
384-98-modules-with-linux-v4-14-9-/, do you mind applying it?

Going further, would be the openQA test that tries to install NVIDIA
proprietary driver be ever accepted to general test suite? Or is there
an OBS project with "working-with-nvidia" kernel packages? Sure, these
suggestions are off top of the head, probably there is a better way to
prevent "nvidia driver doesn't compile for 3 snapshots in a row, older
kernels were just purged by purge-kernels so X doesn't run at all"
case.

In case you want to see the current test overview of openSUSE Tumbleweed on
openqa.opensuse.org you can take a look into
https://openqa.opensuse.org/tests/overview?
distri=opensuse&groupid=1&version=Tumbleweed
and http://github.com/os-autoinst/os-autoinst-distri-opensuse/ for the test
code. I see no problem in coming up with an openQA test to try this out. Of
course testing that the drivers actually work would be more tricky. Also
the main Tumbleweed tests should test systems which are under full control by
openSUSE contributions. Adding content from nvidia which is not under control
should not be done in a test for Tumbleweed snapshot acceptance but it should
be possible to have this test still on openqa.opensuse.org in another job
group.
