Re: [opensuse-packaging] Packagers breaking repositories ...
Had anyone at SUSE tried to reach NVIDIA asking them for permission to
use desktop drivers in openQA so failing to build kernel module of
theirs would be soft fail at least?

- nvidia and tumbleweed kernels

Maybe somebody will realize at some point that dkms is a better
option with a distro that changes kernels every week.

AFAIK the nvidia drivers already use DKMS, and build "on the fly" when
you install/upgrade the package. Problem is, Kernel 5.x did "something"
that might break nvidia drivers...

I've been told that it does not concern the desktop drivers, but what
I've seen on the -factory list suggests otherwise.

anyway, it's just so much more convenient for end users to get an
automated package update to trigger the process than doing it manually -
been there, done that for years until suse started having packages. This
way all I have to do is click on the little rocket in ansible tower.
Once. For X machines. ;)
