Thread: Force nouveau driver

  1. #1

    Default Force nouveau driver

    Hi, i am running on OpenSuse 12.2 RC1
    this is glxinfo:

    OpenGL vendor string: VMware, Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 0x301)
    OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 8.0.3
    OpenGL shading language version string: 1.20
    OpenGL extensions:

    and this is lspci:
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation NV11 [GeForce2 MX/MX 400] (rev a1)

    Why does it want to use llvmpipe instead of nouveau?

    what does lsmod say? i think the actual driver name filename should be nouveau.ko... so 'nouveau' should be reported by lsmod.

    This should report the active driver
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/hwinfo --gfxcard

    openSUSE (not OpenSuse) 12.2 is pre-release/beta software..

    and all such questions/discussions should be in the forum of the same

    Thread is closed for the moment. It will be moved to Pre-release/Beta.

    Check that it is not blacklisted in /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf, (which may be the case if you've installed the proprietary nvidia driver).
