Thread: opensuse 11.3 Xorg errors, won't boot into run level 5, trying to use nouveau driver - please help

  1. #1

    Default opensuse 11.3 Xorg errors, won't boot into run level 5, trying to use nouveau driver - please help

    Fortunately I have added a line to grub so I can boot into init 3 so I'm not stuck from getting around the system. I don't try and watch TV or anything video intensive so I don't think I would need the OEM drivers so I would like to get the nouveau driver to at least start up. Then if I find the unacceptable I'll revert back to the Nvidia drivers.

    I understand that OS 11.3 uses the xorg.conf.d directory instead of the xorg.conf file, although, looking at the Xorg.0.log file it looks like it still tries to load the xorg.conf file before looking at the xorg.conf.d dir.

    In any case below is my xorg.0.log file errors and my comments on those errors.

    Please help. I am rather lost on what to do here. The errors below I'll make a number of notes about.

    Code:
    # How do I stop it from looking at these dirs. You will see I added a file 20-files.conf that 
    excludes these dirs. I'm assuming they are being added in by default so how to stop that?

    on the file the word "nouveau" is in it so I know it is not a NVIDIA driver. So it 
    begs two questions:
    
    1) Where is the command to load this file coming from, especially the update dir.?
    2) How is it loading it when it doesn't exist? Shouldn't there be a "file not found" type of error here?

    I've also rebooted the system a few times just in case there was a kernel update that needed to take effect after I changed something in yast.

    Default Re: opensuse 11.3 Xorg errors, won't boot into run level 5, trying to use nouveau driver - please he

    And for comparison, the following is the xorg.conf file that I used in OS 11.2 when I was using the Nvidia drivers. I have a rather unusual setup (4 monitors in an inverted T arrangement) so if could use the drivers that OS supports that would be better than the Nvidia drivers which is my other motivation for trying to get this to work because I do come across a number of hiccups that most other people probably wouldn't.

    Please do not mix code/output and and your questions or comments. It's difficult to read and almost impossible to quote.

    Who is looking for /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/updates/extensions/libglx.so?
    /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so - used by nouveau - is in the package xorg-x11-server.

    /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/updates/extensions/libglx.so is used by the nvidia driver - not nouveau. It is usually a symlink which depends on the used driver version.

    Are you serious about using nouveau with 4 monitors?

    Thanks, at the moment it's not there at all (symlink or otherwise) but it seems to be loading.

    Are you serious about using nouveau with 4 monitors?
    Bear in mind that all as I know about the nouveau drivers is that it was chosen as a replacement to nv by Novell and my assumption is that the reason for this is that it is better. If you have in depth knowledge on this or know the history of Nvidia replacement drivers please do tell... my knowledge is sketchy at best so to me it doesn't seem like such a terrible thing.

    Even if it's not great solution and I have to revert to Nvidia drivers it would be fair to try to make it work since it has been chosen for this version of suse.

    Also, for anyone else who finds the way I asked the questions and made comments hard to read, here they are a little nicer:

    1) Where is the command to load this file coming from, especially the update dir.?
    2) How is it loading it when it doesn't exist? Shouldn't there be a "file not found" type of error here?

    And which sections did you copy in 50-device.conf and 50-screen.conf?
    AFAIK monitor.conf is not a substitute for the entire xorg.conf. You should rather use xorg.conf for those sections. That's perfectly legal. BTW the warnings you get about fonts and input devices (keyboard, mouse) are normal. You can safely ignore them.

    Default Re: opensuse 11.3 Xorg errors, won't boot into run level 5, trying to use nouveau driver - please he

    And which sections did you copy in 50-device.conf and 50-screen.conf?
    I didn't copy all of the info. from the xorg.conf file to the monitor.conf file. You can see that just by looking at the two above as all the files I changed are shown completely.

    However I put nothing in device and screen. If you read the official xorg wiki they suggest you copy all that I copied into monitor, into monitor. So I did look at this and wonder if suse has set it up differently but I figured it doesn't really matter because it loads all of what's in all of the files anyway and the order is not meant to matter as part of the specification, unless it has been changed since I last looked (entirely possible!)

    The other reason is that if I do use screens and devices, where does the server layout info go? I see no file for that section?

    If I could have found any documentation from suse different to what was on the wiki I would have favored the suse docs.

    However, I'll move the screens and devices into the other files, I guess I'll just leave the server layout info in monitors unless you know there is a right place for that info?

    I'll let you know if there was any change shortly.

    I do use screen and device sections, including setups with several ServerLayout sections, as in the example I posted here: No 2nd screen w/nVidia v260.1.19.36 and 11.3. I'm still using /etc/X11/xorg.conf, not just under openSUSE but also under other Linux distros as well all BSDs, for the simple reason that I generated all those xorg.conf from script. I don't know what the wiki recommends but the monitor/device/screen sections in /etc/X11/xorg.conf are still evaluated and have precedence over the ones in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d. There are just not required anymore and not needed in most (simple) cases. That's why I suggested it would be easier to use /etc/X11/xorg.conf in exactly the same way as you did before. The Input device sections however are ignored unlike otherwise specified (with the option "AutoAddDevices" "False" in the ServerFlags section). Therefore the warnings you see about mouse and keyboard are normal.

    I never used nouveau in multi screens situations ... although I tried once without success, but it's already a while ago. The driver might have improved in the meantime. On ATI based systems the radeonhd provided by openSUSE used to handle that better. The fact that openSUSE - and other distros - chose nouveau as default doesn't necessarely mean that is is better. Maybe they're just not allowed to include the proprietary nvidia driver in the distribution (I don't know but it seems logical). I'm quite sure what you're trying to do would be a lot easier with the nvidia driver. But if you manage to do it with nouveau, that would certainly be worth writing a HowTo.

    I would have started with nvidia. Notice that you might have to boot with the option "nomodeset" for nvidia.

    It boots up with nVidia drivers with my settings however there is this weird bug where moving the mouse pointer to a screen on the 2nd video card causes the mouse to jitter on the edge of that screen and the only thing I can do at that point is restart the server.

    I looked around on the net and others are having the same problem. I think the real issue here is that Xinerama is no longer in active development (since Dec. 2009 according to their website) so it's just dying. That would leave the only real solution to drop being able to pan across 4 monitors and forced to use twin view - 2 sets of 2 monitors. I don't really want to do this but I don't see an alternative and I've fiddle with this for days now, it's time to get it up and running again and get some productive work done.
