Re: [opensuse-factory] Re: Updates on Tumbleweed with proprietary nvidia drivers installed could be more reliable I guess

nVidia package builds KMP on the fly, on end user system. From there it
is not different to DKMS. And it includes triggers that should rebuild
driver when new kernel is installed. If this does not work, it is a bug
that should be reported and investigated.

Well this time the first kernel-5.6 for tumbleweed was released on Sat Apr 4,
the updated nvidia-gfxG05-kmp-default-440.82 , which has the fixes to build on
kernel-5.6 was released on Tue Apr 7 . So three days without functional
nvidia driver for the tumbleweed kernel this time.
However the problem that the older nvidia-440.64 doesn't build on kernel-5.6
without patches was known weeks before. And patches for 440.64 were available.
So it would have been possible to provide a patched 440.64 on Apr.4 . But
probably NVIDIA doesn't want to distribute a package with inofficial patches.

and still no packages/patches for legacy drivers, particularly 390.132
