In Ubuntu is just one click, how is it in SuSe?

Apparently very easy.

(For me NVIDIA Open GL (3D) drivers have been more stable with openSUSE than with Kubuntu.)

It helps that NVIDIA provide the RPMs for openSUSE :-)

Also worth noting where you can 1-click the Nvidia driver, http://en.opensuse.org/NVIDIA

Don't kid yourself if you think openSuSE's nvidia driver installation is seemless. It's not. People, myself included, have a non-functional X after installing them the 'easy way'.

I'm using Kubuntu Gutsy (Beta) by now and indeed adding/activating the nVIDIA drivers have been simplified. However this is new in Gutsy. This was NOT the case in previous versions of *Ubuntu.

On the other hand a one click installation/activation of nVIDIA drivers has been available in SUSE Linux since version 9.2, using Yast Online Update (YOU) :-p
