Thread: Opensuse 13.1 Nvidia GT7025 issue

  1. #1

    Question Opensuse 13.1 Nvidia GT7025 issue

    I am stuck at 640x 480 resolution. I downloaded the proprietary drivers using the one click install for the 7000 series and no luck. I'm still stuck at 640x480. The proprietary drivers now keep KDE from crashing all the time however.

    Anyway, There is a thread for the same issue for a similar card (7023 I believe, mine is the 7025). Followed those instructions and still stuck at a low resolution. I'm very hesitant to start editing config files without knowing exactly what and where to edit.

    In the post I read, this was asked to be ran and posted, so here is the egrep.

    linux-0loi:~ # rpm -qa | egrep "(nvidia|kernel)"
    x11-video-nvidiaG02-304.119-34.1.x86_64
    nvidia-gfxG02-kmp-pae-304.119_k3.11.6_4-33.1.i586
    kernel-desktop-3.11.10-11.1.x86_64
    nvidia-gfxG02-kmp-desktop-304.119_k3.11.6_4-33.1.x86_64
    kernel-devel-3.11.10-11.1.noarch
    kernel-desktop-3.11.6-4.1.x86_64
    kernel-desktop-devel-3.11.10-11.1.x86_64
    kernel-pae-devel-3.11.10-11.1.i686
    nvidia-computeG02-304.119-34.1.x86_64
    linux-0loi:~ # rpm -qa | egrep "(nvidia|kernel)"

    I would greatly appreciate any help.
    thanks

    Please uninstall all nvidia packages again (and kernel-pae-devel) and re-install the driver:
    Code:
    sudo rpm -e x11-video-nvidiaG02 nvidia-gfxG02-kmp-pae nvidia-gfxG02-kmp-desktop kernel-pae-devel nvidia-computeG02
    sudo zypper in x11-video-nvidiaG02 nvidia-gfxG02-kmp-desktop nvidia-computeG02
    Then it should work hopefully.

    Btw, you are likely _not_ using the nvidia driver now. It only prevents KDE from crashing, because it blacklists nouveau. I suppose you use the generic fbdev driver at the moment.

    I did a cut and paste of the code to the command prompt, everything was uninstalled and re-installed, I did a reboot and....No change, still at 640x480.

    As an additional favor when all is done and this works, I would like to find out what the commands in the code do so I can better learn opensuse. Thanks.

    Hm. Then please post the file /var/log/Xorg.0.log. (upload it to http://susepaste.org or similar any post a link)

    As an additional favor when all is done and this works, I would like to find out what the commands in the code do so I can better learn opensuse. Thanks.
    "rpm -e" (or "zypper rm") removes installed packages, "zypper in" installs them.
    "sudo" runs the commands as root user (i.e. System Administrator), which is necessary to install/remove packages.

    You could use YaST->Software Management as well, but the command lines are easier to post in the forum...

    Ok, so the nvidia driver is indeed in use and working.
    But the problem is this:
    Code:
    [    19.211] (WW) NVIDIA(GPU-0): The EDID read for display device CRT-0 is invalid:
    [    19.211] (WW) NVIDIA(GPU-0):     unrecognized EDID Header.
    The screen does not send valid EDID data, therefore the driver doesn't know your monitor's resolution and sets it to 640x480.

    Is the monitor connected directly to the computer or via a KVM switch?
    Try to connect it directly if it's the latter.

    Sometimes, completely unplugging the monitor from the power supply might fix EDID issues.

    If that doesn't help, try to change the resolution in "nvidia-settings". You have to run it as root for creating an /etc/xorg.conf, so do:
    Code:
    kdesu nvidia-settings
    Other options would be to pass the kernel a correct EDID file, or adding a modeline to the X configuration.
    For the first one, see https://www.osadl.org/Single-View.11...e294ea7.0.html
    In short, add something like this to the kernel boot options: (YaST->System->Boot Loader->Boot Loader Options)
    Code:
    drm_kms_helper.edid_firmware=edid/1280x1024.bin
    Instead of "edid/1280x1024.bin" you can also use the following:
    edid/1024x768.bin
    edid/1680x1050.bin
    edid/1920x1080.bin

    It's even possible to create your own EDID file with data specific to your monitor/needs, but that's a but more complicated of course.

    How to add custom resolutions via the X configuration, see here:

    Ok, progress is being made. I am now up to 1024x768. It's a lot less painful to use. While trying to get the monitor and computer to talk to each other properly, I did something and couldn't connect to x server which threw me onto the command line. So I reinstalled using manual configuration.
    egrep shows:
    rlayten@Tomato:~> rpm -qa | egrep "(nvidia|kernel)"
    kernel-desktop-3.11.6-4.1.x86_64
    kernel-desktop-3.11.10-11.1.x86_64
    rlayten@Tomato:~>

    Which is what it's supposed to show (right?).

    Do you want to see the xorg log again? Unless you can just tell me what to look for?

    Thanks.

    Update: I took a look at the xorg log and it looks like its back to using the nouveau drivers.

    You should always be able to boot to "Recovery Mode" ("Advanced Options" in the boot menu) even if you screw up the Xorg config.

    So I reinstalled using manual configuration.
    _What_ did you reinstall?
    openSUSE?
    So you're now at 640x480 again?

    egrep shows:

    You didn't install the nvidia driver.

    Do you want to see the xorg log again? Unless you can just tell me what to look for?
    The current Xorg log wouldn't help I'm afraid.
    What do you want to know/be told now exactly?

    Update: I took a look at the xorg log and it looks like its back to using the nouveau drivers.
    Yes. Because the nvidia driver is not installed apparently.

    yes

    No, I'm at 1024x768 much less painful to use than 640x480

    You didn't install the nvidia driver.
    It's now been installed

    The current Xorg log wouldn't help I'm afraid.
    What do you want to know/be told now exactly?
    Specifically I am going to work on attempting higher resolutions. I'm going to take some of the information you gave me and try to find a manual for my monitor to try to get the resolutions set.

    The funny thing is, until that power failure my desktop worked flawlessly, it was as easy as the one step install of the nvidia drivers and a reboot. I'm wondering if the power failure damaged my monitor so its not talking with linux anymore.

    Try to completely disconnect the monitor from the power supply.

    I had a similar problem 2 years ago, and this fixed it...
