    Default Nouveau driver not active

    Since I always had problems with the nVidia drivers, I quit triyng to install these drivers and keep using Nouveau. After some time using Leap 42.3 I noticed a very poor graphics performance, mainly while watching videos. I thought it could be a setup problem and tried to find the cause, but to no avail. I could not find a way to enable the nouveau drivers, I am asking for help to fix this problem.

    In the code frames bellow (sorry for the huge amount of text) I present the information I though could help to find the source of the problem and its solution.

    The hardware information shows that the nouveau driver is not active:
    Code:
    > sudo hwinfo --gfxcard

    Because of characters limitations I am sending only the parts of the Xorg.0.log file I though relevant for the problem.

    You left off one of the potentially most telling parts. Near the top is the kernel cmdline. It might explain why, or lead to why, it shows '(EE) open /dev/dri/card0: No such file or directory', a fatal error.

    There are actually three potential competent drivers for Xorg NVidia gfx: 1-proprietary/non-free (separate package); 2-nouveau (xf86-video-nouveau rpm); and 3-modesetting (integral to the Xorg server). All my NVidias are older than yours, and successfully using modesetting.

    OK. I will send the full text divided in parts.

    Got the tip, I will search more information about modesetting (I am not a linux expert).

    Mine works equally well if I uninstall xf86-video-nouveau.

    I see my installed Mesa packages list is longer than yours. That could be why you're getting the "(EE) AIGLX: reverting to software rendering" error.

    Some have complained that kernel-firmware or drm-kmp-default need to be added or removed. Maybe one of these is either missing or incompatible with your GTX 970 if missing Mesa pieces isn't your problem.

    I'm pretty sure that modern KMS open source video drivers won't work with acpi=off, so try to remove it.

    Further to the above, if acpi is causing the problem, there is some reading in the documentation: Power Management - Troubleshooting (ACPI). Note that it states:
    Warning: Problems Booting without ACPI

    Some newer machines (especially SMP systems and AMD64 systems) need ACPI for configuring the hardware correctly. On these machines, disabling ACPI can cause problems.
    And it provides other boot parameters then 'just' acpi=off that one can try if there are acpi issues (such as) :
    pci=noacpi
    Do not use ACPI for configuring the PCI devices.

    acpi=ht
    Only perform a simple resource configuration. Do not use ACPI for other purposes.
    Of course one needs to know why acpi is desired to be disabled on a PC so to apply the correct setting.

    There is also a how to on ACPI for openSUSE, although I do not know how current it may be: https://tr.opensuse.org/SDB:Kernel_P..._for_ACPI/APIC

    I just do not know how to match these drivers to those in your list....

    Ok, but since Leap 42.2 the system can be installed only if I disable ACPI...

    I will try to enable ACPI now via grub2 and give it a try. My system description is in bottom line.

    Thank you for your help!

    But the kernel has been updated several times since the release, and 42.3 also contains backported drivers from kernel 4.9 (which are not used by the installer AFAIK), so there's a pretty good chance that the *installed* system will work with ACPI enabled.
