How to install the Nvidia proprietary driver in openSUSE


This is not a new topic. We talked about it at least two or three times before, in my original openSUSE 11 review and tutorial, then again in the openSUSE 11.X articles. Still, it was more sort of a reference rather than a proper step-by-step guide. Indeed, the graphics driver installation, even though it's fairly simple, is not trivial. To remove all and any doubt, I decided to write this tutorial.

We will dabble in Yast, learn how to handle repositories, add the Nvidia source, install the correct driver and test the installation. We'll also recall how the installation used to be done in the past and what some other distributions offer. Follow me.
