Comments on: Unterstanding the nvidia driver process Blogs and Ramblings of the openSUSE Members Fri, 06 Mar 2020 17:50:09 +0000 hourly 1 By: Andreas Klafft Wed, 15 Jan 2014 20:37:34 +0000 First of all I want to thank NVIDIA, that we still have working drivers. Since a longer time I am working with these drivers, also on 13.1. I do not like the politic of NVIDIA, how they make the drivers. I also do not like the competitive project of Nouveau. These drivers do not work for me and since a couple of time they are in a development state. For my graphic adapter I see no improvement. So in my opinion there is a need for a better teamwork between Suse and NVIDIA. The question is how to reach it. I think, you can respect and accept the proprietarity of the driver, because NVIDIA does not want to give you all the secrets about their graphic chips. And NVIDIA can support you with news in development. The drivers are free and who needs a NVIDIA driver, when he does not have a NVIDIA graphic adapter. So you can give info about new SUSE releases and NVIDIA about new GA’s or chips. With some info and hiding the secrets it would be a nice teamwork.
