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:

+ Since Factory is open for everyone maybe he can add the package and
+ maintain it. Looks like Novell Xorg developers don't have enough
+ resources to maintain it.
