Q:
Normally with SUSE distros I'll use YAST Online Uupdate to get the NVidia drivers. However, with Novell Linux Desktop, I can't seem to get YAST Online Update to connect when it tries to fetch the list of available updates. Given that NVidia's site refers to YAST Online Update to get the update rather than the normal NVidia download/install mechanism, what is the "correct" way to get NVidia on Novell Linux Desktop?

A:
There was a problem with the patch + script on the YAST Online Update service. It should be fixed now. Please use YAST Online Update to get the NVidia drivers for Novell Linux Desktop.
