There are two kinds of drivers for NVIDIA video cards:

  • The Free and Open Source drivers for hardware from NVIDIA are named nouveau.
  • The drivers from the hardware manufacturer NVIDIA are themselves named nvidia and cannot be integrated directly into openSUSE because of their license.

Fortunately for the new users, NVIDIA and openSUSE provide a very easy way to install NVIDIA drivers using YaST.

To install proprietary NVIDIA driver, please consult:

See HCL:Nvidia video cards for a list of hardware tested by the community.
