Thread: Leap 15 NVidia drivers fail to build, and mouse is jerky

  1. #1

    Default Leap 15 NVidia drivers fail to build, and mouse is jerky

    The NVidia driver fails to build for my Quadro K1200 and I can't figure out why. The log file is at https://www.dropbox.com/s/ssabrh72j9...ypper.zip?dl=0

    In the meanwhile, everything onscreen is really slow, and my mouse (hard-wired or Logitech USB dongle) is completely jerky and unusable. I am thinking this mat be related to the video driver? Any ideas?
    Thanks for any help,
    Jim

    How exactly are you trying to install the nvidia driver, and what version?

    Install Mesa-dri-nouveau, otherwise the system will only use software OpenGL rendering which is indeed slow.

    I don't know what desktop you use but plasma 5 is known to have issues with nvidia hardware the fix is not to use noveau but the propitiatory driver I don't know why you are building the driver when a prebuild (mostly) driver exists from nvidia
    according to nvidia the 390.59 driver supports Quadro K1200
    http://www.nvidia.com/download/drive...x/134262/en-us
    you should add the nvidia repo and install the driver
    Code:
    sudo zypper ar -f http://http.download.nvidia.com/opensuse/leap/15.0/ nvidia
    sudo zypper in x11-video-nvidiaG04
    reboot to use the nvidia kernel module
    that's it no need to build the driver yourself
    ps if you install the run driver you're going to have to reinstall it with every kernel update this is not needed with the rpm package

    The driver (kernel module) is still being built on installation though, even when installing the rpm packages.

    I tried installing Mesa-dri-nouveau and rebooted, and it will not start. I get ACPI errors like
    ACPI Error:namespace lookup failure and
    ACPI_Ecxception: AE_NOT_FOUND.
    I uninstalled the Mesa package from the console, but it still will not reboot.
    How do I recover?
    Thanks,
    Jim

    I did write prebuild mostly

    if you can boot in console more
    and install the G04 driver as stated above
    if you can't login at all
    at the boot screen select edit hit the "e" key and at the end of the boot line add the number 3 which should boot you in console text mode where you can install the propitiatory G04 driver

    Oops. It had no video drivers, so booted to the console.
    The release notes should be more specific about how to install the NVidia drivers.
    But I then followed the instructions for installing the drivers with zypper.
    Code:
    (2/4) Installing: nvidia-glG04-390.59-lp150.8.1.x86_64 ..........................................................................................................................[done]Additional rpm output:
    update-alternatives: using /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia/nvidia-libglx.so to provide /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so (libglx.so) in manual mode
    update-alternatives: using /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/xorg/xorg-libglx.so to provide /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so (libglx.so) in manual mode
    sed: can't read /etc/ld.so.conf.d/nvidia-gfxG04.conf: No such file or directory
    
    
    
    
    (3/4) Installing: nvidia-computeG04-390.59-lp150.8.1.x86_64 .....................................................................................................................[done]
    (4/4) Installing: x11-video-nvidiaG04-390.59-lp150.8.1.x86_64 ...................................................................................................................[done]
    Additional rpm output:
    grep: etc/X11/xorg.conf: No such file or directory
    Code:
    jardell:/etc/ld.so.conf.d # lsgraphviz.conf  nvidia-gfxG04.conf.rpmsave  sssd-wbclient.conf

    And it still reboots to the console. How do I fix this?

    I haven't done this in a long time but it's possible the number 3 you added is preserved across reboots
    hit edit again and if the 3 is there remove it and boot
    if not what happens when you do a text logon and then go in run level 5 by executing
    Code:
    init 5
    that should start the graphic system

    init 5 gives me a graphical login screen. But I get a popup saying "Could not sync environment to dbus."
    And it will not dismiss
    I uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers, and I get
    Code:
    Additional rpm output:grep: etc/X11/xorg.conf: No such file or directory

    Default Re: Leap 15 NVidia drivers fail to build, and mouse is jerky

    I did another reboot, and it booted to the console, and after init 5, booted successfully into graphics mode. Thanks for the help!
    How do I get it to boot without the init 5? I never added a 3 to the boot process. And the jerky mouse is fixed too.
