    Did you check (after you had removed the proprietary NVIDIA driver) that nouveau is no longer blacklisted?

    NVidia eradication is apparently not a simple process. Was the following part of your uninstallation process?:

    The BRTFS error was fixed.

    I opened a issue in bugzilla and I got the following answer and the solution that fixed the problem.

    The filesystem is corrupt with respect to total_bytes of the device stored. It does not manifest in earlier kernels because the following patch was added later:

    Assuming the problem is on the root filesystem, could you try:

    # btrfs fi resize 685579636736 /

    and check if it is able to boot in the newer kernel?

    uhm...I am not sure the proper way to test if a package is blacklisted but "zypper search nouveau" shows "i+" on "S" column. I had seen blacklisted packages shows as a "l" (non-capital L) on that column....
    The same for "zypper search nvidia", so I suppose I do not have any blacklisted packages in my system, am I right ?

    No ! It was not part of unistallation process !

    All I did was disabling the nvidia repo on yast and proceed to the dist-update.
    As far I understand, as there is a new kernel version, that new version will not get the nvidia driver, but the existing kernel/init ram disk will not be touched.
    However I do not know how to remove the nvidia kernel from the current kernel/initiramdisk .

    Could you provide instructions, please ?
    I've found tons of posts about how to INSTALL NVidia driver, none how to UNinstall it and that mention libglvnd...

    My post #12 provides a link to a very recent instance where zypper in -f libglvnd solved an incomplete NVidia eradication problem. It's my incomplete understanding about NVidia driver installation, since I never install it on any of my own hardware, that the installation instructions include uninstallation instructions that must be followed in order to completely eradicate the installation, a part of which may include tainting of some standard library, at least one of which is provided by libglvnd.

    As to blacklisting, my knowlege is also incomplete. All I know about blacklisting nouveau is that it is configured somewhere in /etc/mod*, which takes effect in initrds, thus requiring initrds be rebuilt as part of the process of eliminating NVidia's proprietary drivers any time that their installation included blacklisting.

    Hi
    I don't see how a standard distribution library that can be installed by any user at any time irrespective of hardware causes an issue. The likely case is failure to remove the nouveau blacklist file AND running mkinitrd to include back in. I may also pay to check dracut configuration as well to ensure nouveau is not in the omit drivers.

    I think #67 in the other thread makes it evident it can be, since force reinstalling libglvnd was OP's ultimate solution. Possibly the only change from the forced re-installation was to (a) library symlink(s), leaving, as might NVidia driver installation, the original libglvnd libraries intact?

    The likely case is failure to remove the nouveau blacklist file AND running mkinitrd to include back in. I may also pay to check dracut configuration as well to ensure nouveau is not in the omit drivers.
    As ample evidence in forums and mailing list archives presents, no doubt these are parts of of NVidia taint eradication often stumbled over.

    To close this thread, it was told me to stick with the nvidia driver and re-install it (https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1182666)
    Re-enabling the proprietary nvidia driver and blacklisting nouveau I got a working system again.

    As far I understand, there was a problem both with nouveau and nvidia in the recent updates, and the nvidia problem was already fixed.

    Unfortunately there was another problem related with pam-unix ( https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1184314 ) than I managed to fix after a few days.

    thank you very much.
