    Default can't boot to x

    I am not recalling any changes I made to my system, if any, but for weeks now, I have been unable to boot to X. I have been using failsafe. Googling posts hasn't helped so I have included some /var/log information. Without a graphical screen, I logged in and typed "startx". Thanks for your help.

    I'll lay odds that the 'nouveau' graphic driver is the kernel module claiming the graphic card such that the 'nv' graphic driver can not load.

    It will likely be necessary to run "yast" (you can run yast in text mode with root permissions if X window not available) and navigate to yast > System > /etc/sysconfig Editor > System > Kernel > NO_KMS_IN_INITRD and change it to "yes". This takes a minute or two to save once changed is submitted. (note this is mentioned in the openSUSE-11.4 release notes)

    ... and it will also likely be necessary to blacklist the "nouveau" driver in the /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf file. This can be done with root permissions by typing with root permissions:
    Code:
    echo "blacklist nouveau" >> /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf
    That should allow the 'nv' driver to load.

    And it should also 'allow' the 'nvidia' proprietary driver to be installed.

    Thanks so far. When I went into YAST, NO_KMS_IN_INITRD was already set at "yes". I blacklisted Nouveau as you suggested. Still no success when I rebooted though. Perhaps I should post the boot log to you as well. There were some error messages there. That would be under /var/log/? When I did "startx" the screen when blank / black.

    Cheers

    Did you also apply the 'nomodeset' boot code at the same time ?

    The /var/log/Xorg.0.log file is always useful. But please do not post it here. Instead post it to SUSE Paste and post here the URL/web-address that you get from that site.

    Have you tried any edits to the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-device.conf file, forcing the 'nv' or forcing the 'vesa' driver ?

    Also, can you advise as to your repositories (I want to be certain you did not mistakenly add cutting edge repositories that broke your X after an update ). ie what is the output of:
    Code:
    zypper lr -d

    So as you can see I had already added the nvidia repository (the way I got it to work in the first place.) I didn't add "nomodeset" to the grub file but at the grub prompt when the computer boots up. It the same thing, correct? Just not permanent.

    "Have you tried any edits to the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-device.conf file, forcing the 'nv' or forcing the 'vesa' driver ?"
    No I didn't.

    I should add though, in my frustration about 2 weeks back, I did "zypper dup" which I understand has a bug. Though I did this after my "X" problem. I have always been able to work via failsafe so I"m not completely stuck.

    Thanks so far

    Richard

    With that list of repos and your experience level, it's no wonder you have problems.
    Feel like starting over, or do you want me to try and fix it?
