    Default System boots to shell

    Brand new installation of LEAP 15 went without an issue.

    FIrst boot up .. threw quite a number of ERROR message to the console .... ACPI method parse failure .. or something like that .. however it finally reaches the GUI and i can log on ... everything fine .. my first job was to find the nVidia repo and install the drivers for my card .. that was not hard using YaST .. chose the same drivers i was using under 42.3 .. all good. But then when reboot the system simply boots to the terminal as below:




    I have tried the various boot options in grub menu but nothing will get me past here.

    I clearly need some help.

    Thanks!

    We need to see more of that log to be able to help. Please use the susepaste command ('sudo zypper install susepaste' if necessary) to upload Xorg.0.log and provide the URL here.

    Two things I see in the logs:
    1-X is using nouveau (FOSS driver), not nvidia (proprietary driver that you say you installed)
    2-sddm is crashing

    Were you able to use all 4 displays before you tried installing the NVidia drivers?

    Which NVidia GPU do you have (execute 'inxi -U; inxi -Gxx'; you may need to install inxi first, preferably run it from an Xterm or Konsole if you can get into X at all, maybe by trying an IceWM session with 'WINDOWMANAGER=icewm startx -- :1')?

    Does the NVidia driver you installed require KMS be disabled? None of the logs I opened indicated nomodeset or anything else I saw to block KMS.

    During installation i specifically chose NOT to use nouveau .. as the question is put with a warning against using it!!

    Yes .. before installing nVida drivers (followed instructions to a T) the system behaved normally ... although clearly there was some config work ahead of me. However, after adding nVid repo via Community tab i selected the same drivers that are installed under my 42.3 system .. i thought that was the reasonable thing to do. After that i rebooted and this where it is at.

    If so either use a display manager (strongly recommended) or adjust /etc/permissions.local
    and run "chkstart --system --set" adterwards.

    I do not know.

    It might be quicker just to reinstall from ISO again ... i must have done something wrong initially .. it only takes about an hour or so to go through.

    Accept the nouveau driver the warning is just a warning it is a beta it will be disabled when you install the NVIDIA driver.

    I have no idea why the warning. Neither nouveau nor nvidia is necessarily needed for a login greeter or X. I have an old $30 GeForce that works fine with the default X driver and two displays:

    Xorg.conf wasn't technically required, but it's how I configured position over/under, primary/secondary, and DPI.

    Here you see the nouveau X driver is loaded and the nvidia X driver failed to load.

    WINDOWMANAGER=icewm startx -- :1 returns:
    Code:
    xinit failed. /usr/bin/Xorg is not setuid, maybe that's the reason?
    If so either use a display manager (strongly recommended) or adjust /etc/permissions.local
    and run "chkstart --system --set" adterwards.
    Two ways around this:
    1-with superuser permission: 'chmod 4711 /usr/bin/Xorg', then run as normal user; or
    2-start icewm logged in as root (it's just a brief test)
