Thread: Changed graphics card - now no graphical enviroment

    Default Changed graphics card - now no graphical enviroment

    Hi,

    My GPU died, nVidia Gf8600GT wich had the latest driver installed from nVidia repository. I took the card out and let the integrated AMD Radeon HD3000 do the job but now for some reason I have no graphical enviroment, no login window, its stuck.

    I went into recovery mode and uninstalled the nvidia related drivers, no luck. I then went and installed these drivers using the one click install https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:AMD_fglr...nstall_64_bits, but still no luck. I can't get my graphical enviroment back.

    I read a ton of ATI related driver tutorials and versions and got so confused that I really don't know what to do next.

    Can you guys guide me ?

    Here are the specs,

    13.1 X64
    AMD Athlon X2
    ASUS M4A78-LT-M with integrated Radeon HD 3000 graphics

    YAST > Software management shows fglrx64_xpic_SUSE131
    OpenSUSE Leap 42.2 x64 KDE

    Probably you have an /etc/X11/xorg.conf that tells X to load the nvidia driver.
    Delete that, and the graphical system should come up.

    If that doesn't help, try to select "Failsafe"/"Recovery Mode" (under "Advanced Options") in the boot menu.

    And remove the fglrx driver, it doesn't support your Radeon HD3000.
    The open source radeon driver (included in openSUSE) should work fine though, including 3D support.

    That's exactly what I did, well sort of...

    I renamed the 20-nvidia.conf in /etc/X11/xprg.conf.d firectory to 20-nvidia.conf.bak and rebooted. It rebooted itself three times while it was suposed to load the login screen and then bam, it loaded fine, even the resolution was ok. Now it it shows this when I enter Kinfo > Graphical > Open GL

    Vmware driver ?

    I see "radeon" loaded, I guess that's how its supposed to be right ?

    lspci | grep radeon

    Code:
    01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] RS780L [Radeon 3000]
    Is there a "settings" control panel or configuration file in wich I can fine tune the GPU, like HDMI audio output, performance level, etc ?

    Ok.

    Now it it shows this when I enter Kinfo > Graphical > Open GL

    Vmware driver ?
    No, that's the llvmpipe 3D driver, i.e. software rendering.
    But the radeon kernel module seems to be loaded.

    Can you please post /var/log/Xorg.0.log? (via http://susepaste.org or similar)

    Maybe you haven't removed the nvidia driver completely?
    It overrides libglx and libGL with its own incompatible versions, which would break radeon's (and every other Mesa-based driver's) 3D support.

    No. Those ARE NOT related to the nvidia driver. Although you might want to uninstall nvdock, as you don't have "nvidia-settings" any more, anyway.

    But maybe you installed it via the .run installer once? That could have left some files.

    Please post the Xorg.0.log, that should shed some light on the issue.

    Well, it says this:
    Code:
    [    36.114] (II) RADEON(0): GPU accel disabled or not working, using shadowfb for KMS
    Some thoughts before I go to bed:
    - Do you have kernel-firmware installed? This contains firmware updates for certain AMD/ATI graphics chips and might be needed for Acceleration to work.

    - Try to set NO_KMS_IN_INITRD="false" in /etc/sysconfig/kernel and recreate your initrd ("sudo /sbin/mkinitrd"), the nvidia driver packages did set this to true until not too long ago.

    - remove that video=xxx option from your kernel command line. With radeon cards, grub2 should correctly detect the monitor's resolution

    - try booting with "plymouth.enable=0", sometimes plymouth can cause problems I heard.

    - maybe there's some other configuration in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d that might disable the acceleration?
