NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-470.74 won't start the X desktop

Hi all,

Up until now I have always downloaded the game ready drivers for my RTX 3070 (on openSUSE Leap 15.3 Linux Kernel 5.3.18) and everything installed and I could start the x desktop and so forth. The latest 470.74 drivers, do install, but after reboot, the x desktop won’t load. I had to go back and install the previous version, 470.63.01.

Any ideas what might be wrong?

Would appreciate guidance.

Kind regards

Does anybody have any idea(s) why this is happening?
