Thread: NVIDIA 367.27-24.1

  1. #1

    Question NVIDIA 367.27-24.1

    I see that NVIDIA drivers 367.27-24.1 are now available.

    The previous driver updates had bugs that resulted in a black screen at boot.

    Has anyone installed this new version and can confirm that it is working correctly?

    (Perhaps this post belongs in "Hardware"? Move if appropriate.)

    The previous update had bugs in the openSUSE packaging, those should be fixed.

    The driver itself was fine AFAIK.

    Has anyone installed this new version and can confirm that it is working correctly?
    I haven't (no nvidia card here...), but somebody else confirmed it is working correctly in the bug report:

    I have those drivers installed now and am still getting a black screen on boot up.

    Do you have virtualbox-guest-kmp-default installed?
    Apparently this breaks the correct creation of symlinks for the kernel modules in Leap currently.

    Remove it and reinstall nvidia-gfxG04-kmp-default, and it should work.

    I don't have that package installed.

    If I open yast up in the command line and under software management I search nvidia it brings a big list up, those I have installed are

    Libdrm_nouveau2 version 2.4.65-1.1
    Libdrm_nouveau2-32bit version 2.4.65-1.1
    Nvidia-computeg04 version 367.27-24.1
    Nvididia-gfxg04-kmp-default version 3.67.27_k4.1.12_1-24.1
    Nvidia-glg04 version 367.27-24.1
    X11-video-nvidiag04 version 367.27-24.1
    Xf86-video-nouveau version 1.0.11-7.2
    Xf86-video-nv version 2.1.20-11.1

    Ok, but this is the only (general) "issue" I'm aware of at the moment.

    We should try to find out why it doesn't work for you then.

    Can you please post /var/log/Xorg.0.log?
    Does it work if you boot an older kernel ("Advanced Options" in the boot menu)?

    Try to reinstall nvidia-gfxG04-kmp-default and post the output:
    Code:
    sudo zypper in -f nvidia-gfxG04-kmp-default
    Maybe something goes wrong when compiling the kernel module...

    How can I post the output of that log when I cannot get it online? Do I have to manually type it?!

    I've tried booting the options in advanced options but still get a black screen unfortunately.

    Cheers

    Maybe take a picture with a digital camera.

    You could also try to add "x11failsafe" to the boot options, this should force the use of a generic driver and might enable you to start a graphical system.
    To do so, press 'e' at the boot menu, and append this option to the line starting with "linux" or "linuxefi", then press 'F10' to boot.

    If that helps, please post /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old afterwards.

    If you get to a login screen but your desktop doesn't start, you could try choosing IceWM instead.

    Or another way, uninstall all nvidia driver packages in text mode:
    sudo rpm -e nvidia-gfxG04-kmp-default nvidia-computeG04 nvidia-glG04 x11-video-nvidiaG04
    Then reboot (you should get into a graphical system then, using nouveau), and post var/log/Xorg.0.log.old.

    I'll start another thread. But I'll also mention it here, since some of the interested people might be reading this thread.

    Checking updates, there was an update for the Nvidia G02 driver. I installed it. That badly broke my system. Details elsewhere (when I get to posting it).
    openSUSE Leap 15.1; KDE Plasma 5;

    That problem affects all nvidia driver versions (or actually the installation of any kmp package).
