Thread: Leap 42.3 black screen when boot after kernel update

    Default Leap 42.3 black screen when boot after kernel update

    Hi,everyone!
    I have a problem with starting openSUSE Leap 42.3 after kernel update from 4.4.92 to 4.4.103. Black screen appears when system begins to boot. I can't manually start X server, boot with nomodeset option has no effect. I had to roll back to 4.4.92 version. What could be a reason of this? Is that problem the same? https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...-kernel-update
    Thanks!

    I also had a black screen, alas with my mouse curser. This led me to believe that the graphics drivers didn’t lant in the new initrd.
    So I logged in as root (console login with ctrl+alt+F1) and did a
    Code:
    dracut -H --force
    in order to rebuild the initrd. After a sync && reboot, I was in business again. Good luck!

    I did this, but result was the same: black flickering screen. I think new kernel doesn't support some nvidia drivers.
