    Default AW: nVIDIA GeForce 7100 driver

    Do you have Internet when logged in as root to a Terminal?

    If yes:
    Install susepaste:
    Code:
    zypper in -f susepaste
    Post the URL of the following commands (you have to wait a bit to get them):
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk | grep -EiA3 'vga|3d|display'
    Code:
    grep 'blacklist nouveau' /etc/modprobe.d/*
    And you have many Parameters in your bootline:
    Code:
    cat /proc/cmdline
    Otherwise take a picture.

    Note that the 7100's are over 9 years old there is probably no NVIDIA support. May have even fallen off the nouveau support .

    Given the GeForce 6150SE works with both 15.0's FOSS drivers for NVidia, odds are high OP's 7100 can do the same.

    Try booting by striking e at the grub menu and clearing the entirety of the kernel cmdline that follows the name of the kernel (root=, resume=, splash=, quiet, etc.).
    I've tried to boot with modified cmdline, but after this susepaste didn't work for some reason. So I rebooted and here it is: http://susepaste.org/40735263

    PS: I also installed back Mesa-dri-nouveau.

    Yes, I have. And susepaste is already installed

    The G02 driver for your Graphics is not build (for Leap15.0) and not supported anymore so I suggest to deinstall all NVidia-drivers and restart your system.

    OK, got it. How do I find all nVIDIA drivers?

    It seems that this driver on nVIDIA website is what I need: https://www.nvidia.com/Download/driv...x/123709/en-us

    I've tried to install it, but it didn't find the kernel sources even when I installed them (via zypper) and used a special flag to specify sources location.

    You need kernel-default-devel, kernel-devel, make and gcc

    So post:
    Code:
    zypper se -si kernel make gcc
    But I do not know, if the driver builds.

    IMO all that's needed is to restore the FOSS purity of the original 15.0 installation: eliminate all the contamination caused by proprietary driver installation, not the least of which is nouveau blacklisting. 13 year old hardware should not depend on proprietary drivers, and IME, it doesn't.
