Default Re: could not open device file /dev/nvidiactl

The NVreg_DeviceFileGID number should be the GID for the video group.
That should solve it..
We are running openSuSE 10.3 & have /dev/nvidiactl (Permission denied) problem with OpenGL. The above solution /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia works except we have hundreds of machine everywhere with everybody belongs to different group.

Is there a way, for the permission (/dev/nvidiactl) to be granted to the user who logins at the console only?
