Thread: What does opensuse do differently with graphics than all or most other linuxes ?

  1. #1

    Default What does opensuse do differently with graphics than all or most other linuxes ?

    Manjaro, all of the ubuntus , centos6-7 , Antergos, debian, KaOS, and others all work and install on my laptop with no issue ,so far opensuse is the only one that does not work

    What are the opensuse people doing to the os to make it not work on my laptop ?How come every single linux ive tried works , but opensuse does not ?
    Also, i have only integrated graphics selected in bios, which in my case im using only the integrated radeon 6480g , becuase i know that opensource graphis does not read 2 cards
    Notebook: Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E425-NZ539PB
    Processor: AMD A-Series A6-3400M
    Graphics Adapter: AMD Radeon HD 6470M
    featuring an integrated Radeon 6480G (240 cores, 444MHz) graphics card.

    I guess that depends on which versions of the above you've used. That might impact on driver support available I guess, especially where proprietary driver support is concerned.

    Now I recall your previous thread on this topic...

    https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...-xorg-graphics

    I can't really add anything further than what was already discussed in that thread. You could submit a bug report though.

    During the install openSUSE sets up "x11failsafe" (i.e. it creates a xorg.conf.install file). There is logic in place such that the DM should evaluate whether the boot is using the x11failsafe option.

    Within the xorg.conf.install is an entry for the "vboxvideo" driver.

    And something along the lines of this might be happening: https://lists.debian.org/debian-live.../msg00005.html

    As you haven't provided any logs or a precise description of where and/or when in the boot process things go whacky, I can't see a direct connection though, unless you're perpetually booting opensuse in failsafe mode
