Thread: X Problems after install with OpenSuse 11

  1. #1

    Default X Problems after install with OpenSuse 11

    saw a few things that got me interested with OpenSuse 11 so decided to give it a go.

    My specs currently are:
    Core 2 duo overclocked @ 3GHz
    2 Nvidia GT 7900 ( With SLI bridge [ doesnt make a diff ] )
    4 GB Ram
    300GB HDD
    600w PowerSupply
    Gigabite Motherboard
    WestingHouse 19" Widescreen Monitor Model: L1975NW

    So, i install OpenSuse and installation goes by smoothly. I reboot and try to start X and it errors out. So i try to download the Drivers and it errors out saying that the ymp file doesnt specify any actions. After this, i try to start x again, and it says it does not detect any screens...any suggestions/help appreciated. Thank you.

    At the bootsplash, type" "3" which will boot you to runlevel 3 and the command line.
    login as "root" & password
    type: "sax2 -m 0=vesa" which is a crappy driver but should get you up.
    setup & test
    save
    reboot
    then when you are up, you can setup the repros in Yast and get the drivers for your system.

    With Nvidia I have found the latest "beta" driver from NVIDIA Driver Downloads - Advanced Search works best -- recommended. look at the howto for openSUSE.

    Good luck

    So nothing? I tried other linux distro's such as fedora core 9 and mandriva 2008 and they seem to work fine after an install. i wanted to try Opensuse b/c i want to run KDE4 and compiz fusion on my comp and it seems easier to set up on suse, plus it looks well put together and very slick, but if there is no X then there is no point. any help please?

    Then it should be possible to get this to run under openSUSE. Do you have a copy of those functional xorg.conf files (from the other distributions that you say work)?

    Currently (early-July-2008) KDE-4 is buggy and not as stable as 3.5.9. You may be in for a disappointment.

    However KDE-3.5.9 is IMHO pretty good on 11.0.

    Take a look here, where in addition to "sax2 -r -m 0=vesa" there are some other possibilities proposed:

    Default Re: X Problems after install with OpenSuse 11

    Ok Fixxed it. What i did was, I booted in Failsafe. Downloaded the beta drivers to the desktop. after that, i restarted computer in normal mode, logged in ( no gui was booting ), upgraded to super user, and did the following:

    sh NVIDIA-Linux-X86_64-177.13.pkg2.run

    and followed the screen when promped for the download of kernel module i said yes, it didnt find any so the pkg built one for me, then it configured my X file as well. After that i typed sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia ( although it seemed to error out just like it did before ). i logged out from super user, and typed startx. and bam, X started.
