Thread: Opensuse 12.2 Gnome graphics broken after update

    Default Opensuse 12.2 Gnome graphics broken after update

    I have an OpenSuSE 12.2 64-Bit Gnome installation on a PC with a NVIDIA Quadro NVS 300 512MB.
    The card was recognised fine and the graphical desktop (including login screen) was also fine after the initial installation.
    I then updatged the system, and then the graphics were very much broken. The resolution was still the same, but serious artefacting (black, white, purple), the menus are distorted and the mouse is mostly gone.

    Has anyone had similar phenomena?

    Yes, kernel bug

    Until a fix is released, either use ctrl+ alt + backspace to kill gdm when
    you see the distortion, or remove splash=silent from bootline, or install
    nvidia binary driver from the nvidia repo
