please READ the suse wiki for the nvidia driver !
the kmod IS RECOMMENDED !!!!
the Open nouveau driver IS already installed
and IF you INSIST on using the nvidia304 .run
BE ADVISED - there is a BUG in all the 300 .run drivers
they are NOT reading the default GAMA screen setting
if you set the gama to anything other than the default it WILL NOT keep it on the next boot
see "the hard way "
but you might need to install the 295 if the 304 is not working well for you
unless you have been using the .run for years and YEARS
the "Zypper" install IS BETTER !!!!
If you use the .run then YOU ALSO have to manually REBUILD the boot image to UNINSTALL nouveau driver
if you did not blacklist the nouveau driver before installing the .run you ? might? have problems
( the .run should???? and a black list but suse is an ODD operating system )
you can not install the .run that way
X11 MUST be off and in run level 3 ( level 1 will NOT work well )
press and hold the power button for 5 sec.
the box will HARD power off
on the green and yellow boot screen there is a text box near the bottom
type in a 3
and hit enter
