Booting issues

Hi,

I am in the process of upgrading to Leap 15.2 when the computer suddenly shut down. When I restart, I was led to the CLI, and not the usual GUI login. From the CLI, I managed to go to yast control center as shown below:

May I know what to do to restore to the GUI login please?

Thanks for help.

Hi
Did it finish the upgrade? You could add the boot option via editing grub and add nomodeset to see if that helps, what graphics card is in your system?

It finished downloading and was updating to 90+% when it suddenly shut down…not too sure if my cooling paste is starting to run off? but anyway, I am using Nvidia 1050 TI…

May I know how to add the boot option via editing grub or add nomodeset pls?

Hi
So I would suggest you re-run the update command from the terminal session to ensure it finishes, then see if all good.

To add the nomodeset option, at grub press the ‘e’ key to edit and scroll down to the line beginning linux or linuxefi (if UEFI booting) and press the end key and spacebar then type in nomodeset and press F10 to boot the system.

After rebooting, it is here

I ran the command

zypper repos --uri

and got this:

Don’t think the upgrade is successful and the fonts are quite big that they fill the screen(I tried adjusting the monitor too)

Thanks for help again.

You will not have normal res until you get the NVIDIA driver up again

So did you run zypper up ???

If you are running on BTRFS with snapper you could try reverting There are selection on the advanced boot menu

I tried rebooting using snapper but it brings me back to the login prompt…

doesn’t seem to work…

your network is probably not setup, which is why your update fails from command line. Just out of curiosity, what does your command line say when you type in

startx

startx is to start xserver, for me 9/10 times when I get such (non-GUI boot) issues, it is resolved by removing (all or Nvidia) entries located in

/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/

Rerun snapper and this time when you rollback, select an image with a time/date prior to when your problems started happening.
That should return you to a working system, and then you can run “zypper update” to update to current and anything else you were trying to do.

Hi SJLPHI,

startx

Hi Tsu,

Rerun snapper and this time when you rollback

There is only a snapshot before the problems started as I deleted any prior ones to free up memory. I have a couple of snapshots after the problems started but I guess they would not be useful…

Do I do this if 163 is the last snapshot that is relevant?

sudo snapper rollback 163

Thanks

can you temporally move the contents of /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ somewhere else to see if you can get GUI back with it?

mkdir -p ~/xorg.conf.d
sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/* ~/xorg.conf.d

then try startx

Thanks SJLPHI,

Please bear with me. Is xorg.conf.d a file…But I need to make a folder below?

can I do the below:

mkdir -p Documents/reserve/xorg.conf.d
sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/* Documents/reserve/xorg.conf.d

xorg.conf.d is a directory and you can run your commands but be sure to specify where Documents are by doing this

mkdir -p ~/Documents/reserve/xorg.conf.d
sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/* ~/Documents/reserve/xorg.conf.d

typically you can simply delete the all of the contents inside /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ and everything would be fine, I am just suggesting moving them in case you have any custom configurations that you want to save as a backup.

Thanks SLJPHI,

I tried but still not able to…

I tried restarting as well…also not able to have a GUI…

Hi
Can you show the graphics card in use;


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

Hi malcolmlewis,

It is a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti

https://paste.opensuse.org/98782975

Hi
I see it show the module in use, can you provide the following as well;


zypper se -si nvidia
/sbin/modinfo nvidia |grep filename
uname -a

Here it is:https://paste.opensuse.org/84523994

Hi
Switch to the GO5 drivers for your card.

I thought you were trying to upgrade to Leap 15.2, even from the command line you can upgrade, if no network, switched to wicked temporarily via yast (not yast2)?

Hi malcolm,

Actually, I was trying to update to Leap 15.2 but then after the computer shut down unexpectedly, that is when the issues come…
