    nomodeset uses fall back drivers there is some problem with your video card driver selections.

    Actually, after using your suggestion, the screen is different, but not worse.
    I understand that "nomodeset" is a precarious solution ... (or not?)....If so, what should I do to make it work right?

    That really depends on your graphics hardware. No promises - it’s your machine. Share the details for others to advise further...
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/hwinfo —gfxcard
    openSUSE Leap 15.0; KDE Plasma 5

    Code:
    /usr/sbin/hwinfo —gfxcard
    That's the result:
    Code:
    audio:/home/sergio # /usr/sbin/hwinfo —gfxcard
    oops: don't know what to do with "—gfxcard"
    audio:/home/sergio # /usr/sbin/hwinfo --gfxcard

    I have a Dell 320 Optiplex exactly the same as this that has no need for nomodeset and works just fine with TDE on 15.0. I do not have plymouth installed on my Dell. Is xf86-video-ati installed? You do need it. Try replacing nomodeset with plymouth.enable=0. If it produces a satisfactory result, remove plymouth.enable=0 and do
    Code:
    zypper rm plymouth
    or equivalent package removal with yast2. If this does not work, share Xorg.0.log with us here.

    Ok - nomodeset and + plymouth=0 then openSUSE work well.
    But it is safe to remove the plymouth?

    Yes it is just a splash screen nothing but eye candy. It hides the normal Linux startup logging.

    ... in addition to mrmazda and gogalthorp's answers, as additional reassurance:
    I love watching the scrolling lines at boot, I can see the work that the boot process is doing, which reassures me that something is happening, and I think it shows the actual power of the OS.

    With a fancy splash screen, you can never be sure what -- if anything -- is actually happening while you are waiting for the login screen.

    So, in all my machines, all installs, I remove and taboo Plymouth right away when doing the installs.

    Yes, that's a nice practice. Very good to know this
    Many thanks to everyone.

    This lack of knowing anything is actually happening is one reason why I never migrated from DOS to Windows last century. In OS/2 (as in Linux), there was an option to dispense with the secrecy during the interminable wait.

    So, in all my machines, all installs, I remove and taboo Plymouth right away when doing the installs.
    TBC for the OP, one "removes & taboos" during installation by selecting "Details" after system role selection, and changing the checkbox for plymouth from either checked or empty to taboo/do not install.
