Thread: No kde, I get only terminal

  1. #1

    Default No kde, I get only terminal

    Hello
    I have installed Suse 11.1
    After instaling my nvidia driver and restart my computer, I had only a terminal. No kde manager.
    Only a black screen with terminal. What can I do. How can I run my terminal.
    Any idea?

    Try typing startx and see if that starts your DE (Desktop Environment aka KDE)

    Edit: If that still doesn't start KDE then try typing in sax2 so you can reconfigure your monitor.
    Once you install a modem, the government can look into your computer and watch everything you do! That's why every night before I go to bed, I turn the monitor to the wall.

    When the terminal login comes up log in with your user and do the following:
    Switch to root account with
    Code:
    su
    .
    Before reconfiguring the X server switch to runlevel 3 type:
    Code:
    init 3
    then reconfigure your X server with:
    Code:
    sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia
    ^^ 0 - is a digit, NOT a letter.
    . If everything is fine a window will come up, click to the OK - it'll switch back to the terminal session. You can reboot now with:
    Code:
    reboot
    .
    Hope that helps.

    I tried everything and I couldnot start kde. I had to reinstall Suse.
    Then I try to install again my video card and I lost my KDe again.
    What is wrong what I do? I install my videocard this way:NVIDIA - openSUSE
    I just click to button install and everything si automatical.
    So, I had to install my suse 11,1 again. Third time, but this time, I will not install my video card this way
    If I dont install my video card, I cannot run my second screen. Pleae any advice?
    My video card is Nvidia 8400 GS

    are you sure you have an nVidia card? Because it sure doesn't look like openSUSE sees it.

    You don't need to reinstall openSUSE, as it is pretty easy to reset the video driver.

    The log says:
    Code:
    (EE) NVIDIA: Failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module. Please check your
    (EE) NVIDIA:     system's kernel log for additional error messages.
    are u sure that your card is supported by the latest nVidia driver?
    To reset your video card configuration do the same process what I explained in my first post but the 3rd command should be
    Code:
    sax2 -r -m 0=vesa
    .
    Good luck.

    I can reset my video config with this comand sax2 -r -m 0=vesa?
    Do I need to make backup before?
    So, what advace will you give me? How can I install my video card?

    First you need to find out the type of your video card with:
    Code:
    su
    hwinfo --gfxcard
    In the output text search for the line which begins with Model. Now take a look to the list of supported cards here: Appendix*A.*Supported NVIDIA Graphics Chips.

    • If your card isn't supported reset the settings with
      Code:
      sax2 -r -m 0=vesa
      Sax will automatically make a backup file.

    I installed my video card, but when I restart I have no KDE.
    Can I make something more?
