cannot add Community Repo

Hi all, just installed Tumbleweed via net.iso and I cannot get the Community Repo to be added to the list of Repos and so cannot go on to install nVidia driver.
On the main page, list of Repos, I press the Add button go to the next page select Community Repo and press Next, Yast goes through the motions and then on the following page it is all blank.
Pressing Next returns me to the main page and Community Repo is not listed.
Hope you can help, Pete

You can try -

zypper addrepo --refresh https://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/tumbleweed nVidia

Thanks for that Coldboot worked great.

But the driver will not works with kernel 6.0…

Update is on the way, but not yet published.

For now, I’ve set default Linux to 5.9.13-1-default via yast2 bootloader; it works that way.

Have downloaded latest Tumbleweed and all works well, thank you.

Or maybe not… because Display lists the screen as Laptop instead of a Samsung 24" external monitor. I am NOT using a laptop.
At boot there is a Blacklist message saying that Blacklist cannot blacklist -13
xrandr returns Failed to get size of gamma for output default
Screen 0: minimum 1024 x 768, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1024 x 768
default connected primary 1024x768+0+0 0mm x 0mm
1024x768 76.00*

I believe you can set resolution from System Settings –> Display & Monitor.

For xrandr try and get available video modes -

xrandr -d :0

One you do that you can try -

xrandr --output default --gamma 0:0:0 --mode <suitable_resolution>

Example from my system:

xrandr --output default --gamma 0:0:0 --mode 1920x1080

I’ve also just hit the “Packman repo” not found issue . . . which then blocks running the rest of the zypper dup -l process.

But, just like I posted on another thread, generally I have found “problems” with running proprietary drivers with cutting edge or rolling distros like TW. Try “default” or “nouveau” drivers and see how that goes. If you were running Leap or something more stable then perhaps worth the time messing with nvidia drivers . . . otherwise, not.

“Failed to get size of gamma for output default” and “1024x768” mode are a typical results of graphics driver trouble and/or nomodeset on a Grub linu line. No amount of settings manipulation attempts can solve the driver problem. If you browse /var/log/Xorg.0.log you likely will see many consecutive lines containing vesa(0) or fbdev(0), and/or a bunch of lines containing (EE), which are bad news indicators of driver and/or configuration trouble.

BTW, a repo is nothing but a file in /etc/zypp/repos.d/. Most optional repos on the mirrors carry this file, which you can download to repos.d/ as a sure-fire way to confidently add the repo. Index of /opensuse/tumbleweed is not one such, while e.g. Bumblebee/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/ is.
