    Default After 5.1.2.1 Update only boots to login, no graphics

    I installed 5.1.2.1 update using zypper dup and now it only boots to login to command line. If you try and start plasma it says it finds it but can't start it. I made the mistake of also updating to 5.1.3.1 that had mesa updates but still same problem and now I have no working snapshot to boot into.
    Any ideas? Thanks

    Hi
    I suspect your using nvidia graphics? If your using the nvidia repository for drivers it may not have updated to the 5.1.3 kernel....

    Yes, using a GT730 card. Neither 5.1.2 or 5.1.3 works

    Hi
    So the driver installed from the Nvidia repository?

    The driver has not been built.... (Only see 5.0.13)
    https://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/tumbleweed/x86_64/

    I have a GT710 in another system, always use the hard way....

    Guess I will just wait until they add the new one to the repository and use MacOS til then as I don't have a working snapshot now.

    It seems the updated nvidia driver is present in the repository. My question is how do you install it from command line? I tried Yast and zypper but it turns out I can't seem to get online. I guess network manager isn't loading and I can't seem to find a way to launch it.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    You could maybe try "nmtui" for a terminal user interface to NetworkManager. And, if you get connected, use "zypper dup".

    I was able to get online using nmtui and did a zypper dup which installed the nvidia driver among other things.. It got an error at the end saving to database. Rebooting it still gives the same problem of booting to login and no graphics. Doing a further zypper dup gives "nothing to do".

    Hi
    Booting to login, a GUI login or console?

    Can you show what nvidia rpm is installed?

    Code:
    zypper se -si nvidia

    It went to cli no graphics. I rebuilt the rpm database (rpm --rebuilddb). Then I ran zypper dup again and this time it said nvidia driver was locked. So I launched yast from cli and deleted the nvidia driver and then reinstalled it with yast and now it works!



    thanks everyone.
