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?
Thanks
