    Default Applied recommended updates, Now can only reboot into command line mode

    Running Lenovo p70 with NVIDIA Quadro graphics card. Applied recommended updates and now can only boot into a command prompt.
    I issued a journalctl -b command to check the logs. The following messages are in the logs.

    Failed to start show Plymouth boot screen
    Plymouth-Start-Service: unit entered failed state
    Plymouth-Start-Service: Failed with result 'Core-Dump' Several core dumps in the root directory for Plymouth
    Failed to Start Modem Manager
    Failed to start Network Manager
    Failed to start manage Install and generate Color Profile
    Failed to start xDisplay Manager

    I've tried advanced booting to a previous version of Tumbleweed 4.4.176-96 with no luck Can only boot into command line mode on Tumbleweed 5.1.3.1

    I suspect my NVIDIA card may be the culprit from reading other posts in this forum.

    How can I confirm this? Zypper cannot find NVIDIA on my system. I believe the drivers where loaded from Lenovo when I purchased the p70 and not installed by Zypper.
    What NVIDIA sites or OpenSuse sites can I visit to determine if there are current drivers for the Quadro M4000M?

    Any recommendations to get beyond a command prompt and to a working desktop?

    Seeking help and guidance here. Anything is appreciated.

    This kernel is for 42.3.

    This is the current TW kernel.

    I believe mixed repos is the basic problem. Please show input and output from:
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    cat /etc/os-release
    Please wrap your paste, including the command and the following prompt, using the [ # ] icon above the input window. Once this is done, a plan can be recommended.

    Virtually all NVidia cards released more than several months ago are supported by FOSS drivers. However, installing proprietary video drivers disables them. Partial removal of formerly installed proprietary drivers leaves them disabled. Upgrading kernel and/or OS version commonly creates this condition. If you have upgraded OS version without first removing proprietary drivers according to the instructions provided for their installation, you can expect the condition you are in.

    I can run those two commands and produce the output. However since I am in command line mode I do not have the ability to capture the output and place it in this forum. I'm open to suggestions on how to do this.

    Use "script" command which captures all output in file.

    You can redirect the output to a file:
    Code:
    zypper lr -d > filename
    cat /etc/os-release >> filename
    Replace "filename" by the name/path to whatever file you want to use. It can be on a USB that you can carry to another computer as needed.

    When i installed OpenSuse I specifically chose Leap because I'm not a developer and wanted to steer clear of problems such as this.

    The results of the: cat /etc/os-release is as follows.
    NAME="openSUSE Tumbleweed"
    # Version="20190520"
    ID="opensuse-tumbleweed"
    ID_LIKE="opensuse suse"
    VERSION_ID="20190520"
    PRETTY_NAME="openSUSE Tumbleweed"
    ANSI_COLOR="0;32"
    CPE_NAME="cpe:/opensuse:tumbleweed:20190520"
    BUG_REPORT_URL="https://bugs.opensuse.org"
    HOME_URL="https://www.opensuse.org/"
    LOGO="distributor-logo"


    I will have to send the output from the zypper command in my next reply.

    Not true.

    An arguably simpler method of what NRickert wrote:
    Code:
    sudo zypper lr -d | susepaste -n jmduffyjr -e 10080
    cat /etc/os-release | susepaste -n jmduffjr -e 1440
    The latter will remain at the indicated URL one day, while the former will remain one week. Each will provide a pair of URLs for you to type or paste here. (Either of the two for each command should suffice.)
    Code:
    man susepaste
    Susepaste can also upload the file generated by arvidjaar's suggestion.

    I am triggered by the OPs:
    .... Applied recommended updates ....
    That is very vague and does not communicat what you did. I hope it was
    Code:
    zypper dup
    because that is the only recommended way to update Tumblweed.

    Here is the output of the two commands you requested. apologies the second file did not paste properly. I was not quite sure what your reference to wrapping the paste and # reference was for. Hopefully this is adequate.

    You have a bunch of 42.3 repos active you can NOT mix repos !!!!!!! You need to change all those to tumbleweed compatible repos



    Also please use code tags when posting code. (# in tool bar for this editor)
