Description:
Hi, nouveau drivers (nvidia) are the only good alternative to nvidia
closed source drivers. It would be awesome to use it on openSUSE 11.2
by default.

+ I think this is a good idea, by the time 11.3 rolls around nouveau
+ should be in pretty good shape.  Maybe not perfect, maybe not as good
+ as the official binary drivers, but probably far better than the
+ official (crippled) open-source nv driver.
+ In the meantime one of the nouveau developers has provided an openSUSE
+ repository for the drivers:
