Booting Animation

Hi all, I’m fairly new to Linux and even newer to GRUB etc.

Everything is pretty straightforward with OpenSuse though, but for some reason I get a graphical glitch when booting and some kinda animation appears to be displayed (I think it’s an animation anyway, a few pixels shift about within the mess)

I’m not sure if it’s because my monitors are square rather than widescreen but that’s the only thing I can really think of. Has anyone else seen this?

Cheers

Let me guess … nVidia?

nVidia indeed

Select Advanced - recovery mode in bootloader menu and install proprietary nVidia drivers as described here: SDB:NVIDIA drivers - openSUSE Should work after that.

I’ll give that a go cheers!

And just like that all was well with the world

Thanks a lot for your help!!

For anyone landed on this thread by google, after installing nvidia’s propietary drivers, create /etc/adobe/mms.cfg and put the following into the new file:
EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1

and restart your browser to stop youtube videos mixing the red and blue channels and making everyone turn blue :wink:

Ah yeah the wife mentioned that since I think she uses the option on the Apple devices her office forces on her, I’ll give it a go, thanks!
