    https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:NVIDIA_drivers
    thats what iget when run
    Code:
    sudo lspci | grep VGA
    and
    Code:
    sudo hwinfo --gfxcard | grep Model
    Code:
    naive2021@localhost:~> sudo lspci | grep VGA
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09)
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF108M [GeForce GT 620M/630M/635M/640M LE] (rev a1)
    Code:
    naive2021@localhost:~> sudo hwinfo --gfxcard | grep Model
      Model: "nVidia GF108M [GeForce GT 620M/630M/635M/640M LE]"
      Model: "Intel 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller"
    so i install x11-video-nvidiaG05 and nvidia-glG05 by using yast, i believe until now i go in correct way.

    Hi
    AFAIK that card is only supported by G04 series, not G05.... If you switch (and reboot), what is the output from;

    Code:
    xrandr --listproviders

    the output is

        output LVDS-1
        output VGA-1
        output HDMI-1
        output DP-1
    also the "NVIDIA X server setting" is open but ask for root permission, attached screenshot for popup windows when click "NVIDIA X server setting" from start menu.

    forum refuse direct attach image, so the message is " you do not appear to be using the NVIDIA x driver. please edit your x configuration file (just run 'nvidia-xconfig' as root), and restart the x server.

    when try run this command
    Code:
     sudo nvidia-xconfig
    the reult is
    Code:
     Using X configuration file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf".
    Backed up file '/etc/X11/xorg.conf' as '/etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup'
    New X configuration file written to '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'

    Hi
    Is nomodeset used in the grub boot options? Likewise, if you have an /etc/X11/xorg.conf file it's not needed....

    did you mean if nomodeset used in grub so there's no need for /etc/X11/xorg.conf. did i understand correct?
    it first time ear about "nomodeset", but when i search find to add it i need run this command
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/default/grub
    to edit grub file, so i run this command to see if "nomodeset" add to grub or not. depend on what i see nomodeset did not used in the grup. also i add the result of command in case am understand wrong.

    Code:
    GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=
    GRUB_DEFAULT=saved
    GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0
    GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true
    GRUB_TIMEOUT=3
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="splash=silent resume=/dev/disk/by-uuid/8591fdc4-950                                                                                         >
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""
    also when run this command
    Code:
    cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    the result is

    Code:

    Hi
    Ok, no nomodeset So can you move that xorg.conf file out of the directory (or rename so it won't be used) it should not be required.

    Can you also check the nvidia driver is loaded;

    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk | egrep -A3 "VGA|Display|3D"
    The reboot and see if the card shows up in the xrandr output.

    1- i go to /etc/X11 directory, it continue
    Code:
    (xdm, xim.d, xinit, xorg.conf.d, xorg_pci_ids) folders + (xim, Xmodmap.remote, xorg.conf.install, xorg.conf.backup, xorg.conf.nvidia-xconfig-original, xorg.conf, Xmodmap, Xresources) files.
    so i
    Code:
    change xorg.conf to xorg.conf.backup1
    2- before and after change i run your code
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk | egrep -A3 "VGA|Display|3D"
    it give me same results
    Code:
     
    before

    3- i do not know how check the nvidia driver is loaded, but when search find this command
    Code:
    lsmod | grep nvidia
    Code:
    it did not show any result, try it with and without sudo
    is there's any chance the user permission (group connect to this problem). when open yast, user and group administration (there's one user, my account), when chose edit it and go to details tab (find i "my account" only part from users group(default group), but did not belong to any other group (addional groups). i aleardy create another therd as i can not use open as root from Context Menu, doesn't work (nemo file manager) in another partion in fourm.

    Hi
    So you installed the rpms?

    Code:
    zypper se -si nvidia
    Did you reboot?

    Also did the initrd rebuild and blacklist the nouveau driver?

    1- to remove G05 series and install G04 series, i open yast software management then search for NVIDIA and start remove G05 series driver elements. yast give me broken alert when try remove some elements (dependency alert, as i try remove one element in time). one from those elements yast say it will remove it and all G05 series and then will replace them by G04 series driver. so i hit enter and yast do every thing.

    2- yes i reboot after every installation.

    3-
    Code:
    your code zypper se -si nvidia result is
    Code:
    zypper se -si nvidia

    4- also first time hear about "nouveau", do not know how check if "initrd rebuild".
    Code:
    but when search inside yast software manager find next package installed
    libdrm_nouveau2
    
    libvdpau_nouveau
    
    xf86-video-nouveau
    
    in same time find "Mesa-dri-nouveau" package flagged with taboo never install (by other words it not installed)

    5- in yast software manager find those package "not installed", i believe they can solve the problem. what your opinion, did i need to install them or one of them?
