    In order to use the proprietary NVIDIA driver on a MacBook Air 3,1 (11-inch, late 2010) with the NVIDIA GeForce 320M chipset booting openSUSE Leap 42.1 in EFI mode, create the file /etc/grub.d/01_enable_vga.conf with the following content: #!/bin/sh set -e # Initialize the PCI-E registers of MBA 3,1 for the nvidia driver cat << EOF […]
