    Lightbulb Repositoreis: Blender and Cycles

    Hello everybody,

    I just stumbled about an issue with the blender build provided in the repo-oss on Tumbleweed and cycles.
    The cycles render engine can not run on the GPU while the portable version from blender.org can and I wonder if I just missing some additional packages.

    Thanks in advance

    PS.: I added some images to show the actual issue.

    Installed blender packages:


    System preferences window of the portable blender version:


    And the same window from the repo build:

    Hi
    I would surmise that the portable version has the nvidia blob present, whereas your system does not have the proprietary driver installed, or it is and out of date/not functional...

    Here is mine at present;

    I do have everything properly installed (I think), the NV dirver is the one from the repos as well.
    Without the proprietary NVDirver the portable version would also not being be able to render on the GPUs.
    Below you'll find the nvidia packages I have installed.



    That's why my initial thought was that there is some packages just missing I'm just not aware of being necessary.
    Can you show me a list of nv packages you have installed? Maybe that would help me here

    Thanks in advance

    Hi
    I use the run file(s) to install the nvidia drivers, cuda and cudnn (just libs), if your system is up to date with the 5.2.11 kernel, then the nvidia blobs are out of date.....

    Code:
    pinxi -GxxSaz
    
    System:    Host: grover Kernel: 5.2.11-1-default x86_64 bits: 64 compiler: gcc v: 9.2.1

    If you run;

    Code:
    /sbin/modinfo nvidia | grep filename
    
    filename:       /lib/modules/5.2.11-1-default/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.ko
    Does it show up in weak-updates?

    Hey ho

    Okay, here is my the output of inxi -GxxSaz:

    Code:
    System:    Host: Z004 Kernel: 5.2.11-1-default x86_64 bits: 64 compiler: gcc v: 9.2.1 Desktop: KDE Plasma 5.16.4 tk: Qt 5.13.0 
               wm: kwin_x11 dm: GDM, SDDM Distro: openSUSE Tumbleweed 20190904 
    Graphics:  Device-1: NVIDIA GP104 [GeForce GTX 1080] driver: nvidia v: 435.21 bus ID: 23:00.0 chip ID: 10de:1b80 
               Device-2: NVIDIA GP104 [GeForce GTX 1080] driver: nvidia v: 435.21 bus ID: 24:00.0 chip ID: 10de:1b80 
               Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.5 driver: none unloaded: fbdev,modesetting,nouveau,nv,nvidia,vesa 
               compositor: kwin_x11 resolution: 1920x1080~60Hz, 1920x1080~60Hz 
               OpenGL: renderer: GeForce GTX 1080/PCIe/SSE2 v: 4.6.0 NVIDIA 435.21 direct render: Yes
    And the nvidia module

    Code:
    /sbin/modinfo nvidia | grep filename
    filename:       /lib/modules/5.2.11-1-default/updates/nvidia.ko
    Whats the different between "updates" and your "kernel/drivers/video"?
    So I guess that is the problem and to fix it I would need to install the driver "the hard way" right?

    And thank you very much for the time to take a look on this

    Hi
    Well your driver looks ok, I'm guessing dracut did it's thing in the background...

    I think this is the possible issue;

    Code:
    My System:
    Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.5 driver: fbdev,modesetting,nvidia,vesa alternate: nouveau,nv
    
    Your System:
    Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.5 driver: none unloaded: fbdev,modesetting,nouveau,nv,nvidia,vesa
    You didn't boot with nomodeset? or is it in the kernel boot options?

    Code:
    cat /etc/default/grub | grep GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT

    Hey there,

    yes I was wondering about the "driver" part too.

    Here is the output from the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT

    Code:
    cat /etc/default/grub | grep GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="splash=silent resume=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WDS100T1B0A-00H9H0_164710803211-part2 quiet mitigations=auto"
    I'm not sure what this should look like
    But it's the default settings I did not bother with the boot options at all.
    I once only upgraded Leap 15.1 to Tumbleweed (and had zero issues and not a single application broken so I assumed everything worked quite well could this be related?)

    Kind regards,
    Vortex

    Hi
    Well that looks fine, can you post the output from;

    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk | egrep -A3 "VGA|Display|3D"

    Hi
    All very strange, ok so if you create a test user and login, does cuda show as enabled for this user?
