SDB Talk:NVIDIA drivers

Jump to: navigation, search

The title of this article

I am for: SDB:NVIDIA_drivers_(compilied) . Or at least SDB:NVIDIA_drivers_(closed and compilied). But I think if any "warning" about closed/proprietary software is needed/wanted -> a short sentence in every article with a link to the FLOSS / FOSS / oss / Free Software article and a category:proprietary would be a good way. --Pistazienfresser 06:14, 15 December 2010 (MST)

why the suggestion to use the "online update"

The YaST installation:

4. Go back to the YaST Control Center and click Online Update.

5. Click Extras in the top bar, then click Install All Matching Recommended Packages.

This wants to add many unwanted packages if you installed things with --no-recommends.

Why is this suggested instead of using YaST Software Management to install the driver?

I've updated the article to avoid this.

Uninstalling via zypper

Is this the command for uninstalling?

   sudo zypper rm nvidia-gfx*-kmp* x11-video-nvidia


I've added a section for uninstalling with Zypper. Please give it a try and report back. I'm done with installing the proprietary drivers for now. Ravas (talk) 06:04, 13 August 2019 (UTC)

Should add the necissity to remove nouveau before

Should add a section prerequisites with the removal of nouveau as it brings the system in a bad state without graphics if you just follow the manual step by step
