    Default Don't see the login screen. Get a screen with squares and rectangles.

    Hi,

    I installed opensuse11.4 few minutes back. The install was absolutely smooth. I have dual boot, Win Xp and 11.4 now. But for some reason I do not see the login screen but instead I see a green screen with squares and stripes. Login in the failsafe mode is successful. How do I fix it?

    Also noticed the following,

    1) Initially the splash screen picks up the right resolution 1024*768 and then it changes it to a higher resolution. This I think I can fix, because I had faced a similar problem with 11.3 as well.

    Graphics Card: GeForce 7025/ nForce 630a.

    Sorry to ask you this, but how do I figure out which graphics driver I use? I tried seeing it here openSUSE Graphic Card Practical Theory Guide for Users , but I could not figure out the code to type on my terminal and tell what I graphics driver do I use.

    Thanks -- Nihilanth.

    Several ways. If you have a GUI running you can go to my computer folder and it will tell you

    From the command line

    lspci

    will list all the PCI devices and one will be the video card. You will see video on the line.

    I suppose that you want to stick to the nouveau driver and there is a rational behind to not install the proprietary nvidia drivers... right?
    Or is the caracteristic free/unfree not important? Just to check this point.

    Yes, I would want to stick to nouveau driver. But if nothing works, I will be forced to change to nvidia driver.

    This appears if I am not erroneously a bug (probably in the nouveau driver) and should be know under the name of Bug 669783.
    LINK1
    LINK2

    However OpenSUSE seem not to be alone. I would suspect a problem of the nouveau driver:
    LINK3
    Using xorg-x11-drv-nouveau on a motherboard (asrock N68C-S-UCC) with integrated
    Graphic nvidia geforce 7025 causes the graphical login screen (kdm or gdm) to
    be garbled and unusable. Removing /usr/lib64/xorg/drivers/nouveau_drv.so and
    using vesa_drv.so instead works also, but with reduced resolution.
    So either you wait for an update / patch or you use for the time being the proprietary driver.
    Maybe you wish to follow up the bug in the OpenSUSE bugzilla?

    Hi,

    Have landed into a new problem now. Here is the description:

    1) Installed the nvidia proprietary driver the hard way. I do not a garbled screen at start. Can see my screen
    2) But the resolution is set much higher. I want to set it to 1024 * 768.
    3) I follow the advice here Nvidia for Newbies part 1 to reset the resolution to 1024 * 768
    4) But when I Alt + F1 and type nvidia and then click on the application "NVIDIA X Server Settings", it never launches . I just see the application logo bouncing along with the mouse pointer.

    How do I set this right?

    Thanks -- Nihilanth.
