Thread: nVIDIA GeForce 7100 driver

Hybrid View

  1. #1

    Default nVIDIA GeForce 7100 driver

    I have Gigabyte GA-73PVM-S2H motherboard on my PC which goes with nVIDIA GeForce 7100.

    Without drivers it shows me display in 640x480 resolution.

    I couldn't find the driver in the repos for my video card. Also, I couldn't install the driver, taken from official website, because it didn't find the sources.

    What should I do?

    Please do
    Code:
    zypper in inxi
    as root or using sudo, then paste here, using the # icon (for code) above, the text output from
    Code:
    grep 'Kernel command' /var/log/Xorg.0.log
    and
    Code:
    rpm -qa | grep xf86-video
    and
    Code:
    inxi -Gxx
    run as root or using sudo. Your installation in safe mode may have failed to include a required FOSS X driver, or have included a cmdline option that prevents using an appropriate KMS X driver.

    I ran the commands you've proposed.

    Here is the result. Sorry for pasting the image, but it's too much to type.

    Those commands were meant to be redirected to file for copy and paste, or copied and pasted from Konsole or an Xterm.

    Output from the grep command shows you are booted into failsafe mode. Are you unable to boot at all using the default boot menu selection? From the main selection you should be able to boot into the GUI via use of the X driver from the xf86-video-nouveau package that the rpm command shows is installed. Without that package installed, you should be able to boot into the GUI via use of the "modesetting" X driver provided by the X server itself. You might wish to give xf86-video-nouveau removal and reboot a try. Output from that grep command cannot produce an expected result while booted in failsafe mode, so if you can boot using the default boot menu selection, please provide that output again. Better yet might be to use this command:
    Code:
    susepaste -n Rominf -e 40320 /var/log/Xorg.0.log
    and provide the resulting URL here.

    Sorry for a long delay - I've been AFK this time.

    I'm using the default boot menu selection. I think this can be because I've installed the OS in safe mode (see https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...13#post2888013).

    I've removed xf86-video-nouveau and rebooted - same result. After this I've also found that I had Mesa-dri-nouveau installed. I've removed it - same result.

    As I wrote, I unable to boot in normal mode, so there is no point posting Xorg log here.

    What should I try next?

    For some definition of "unable to boot in normal mode", "no point" is false. It may be trying to start X and failing to show anything on the display but nevertheless creating a log containing clues to "boot" failure.

    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.

    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 .
