Thread: Leap 15.2. NVIDIA driver does not work

  1. #21

    Default Re: Leap 15.2. NVIDIA driver does not work

    Code:
    mike@localhost:~> inxi -SGxxz
     System:
       Kernel: 5.3.18-lp152.26-default x86_64 bits: 64 compiler: gcc v: 7.5.0

    The third output, please give a hint, how to perform it better?

    Neither the nouveau nor the nvidia kernel driver are engaged, so you are left with the basic framebuffer (large icons, large text etc.).

    Code:
    mike@localhost:~> su
    Password: 
    localhost:/home/mike # lsmod | grep -E "nvidia|nouveau"
    localhost:/home/mike # sudo lsmod | grep -E "nvidia|nouveau"
    localhost:/home/mike #
    Confirming that neither nouveau nor nvidia kernel modules are engaged.
    The third output, please give a hint, how to perform it better?
    This is not needed, the nouveau kernel module didn't load, so there is a "blacklist nouveau" somewhere.
    So we are left with the problem of why the nvidia module didn't load.
    Please post the result of:
    Code:
    uname -r
    just to confirm what kernel you are actually running.
    Then please open a console (CTRL+ALT+F1 or F2-8 if F1 is already taken), login as root and issue:
    Code:
    modprobe nvidia
    and post here any errors the system gives.

    The first point is:

    Code:
    mike@localhost:~> uname -r
    5.3.18-lp152.26-default
    Please wait a bit until I perform the second one

    Have a look at what is really installed in yor system:
    Code:
    zypper se -i -s nvidia kernel gcc make

    Installed packages seem OK, but for some reason the nvidia kernel module didn't build or is not where the system expects to find it.
    Please check as superuser:
    Code:
    modinfo nvidia | grep filename

    Ok, so the module is where it is expected to be, but it doesn't engage at boot and you can't even modprobe it...
    That's beyond me... unless you are using secure boot perhaps...

    I don't think I use secure boot, just regular boot, as far as I understand..thank you for trying to help though
