Driver Intel for HD 620

Hi all! I’ve Opensuse 15.1 installed on a laptop, and i would like to know which video driver i must choose from the Nvidia community repository. My VGA is an Intel Corporation HD Graphics 620 (rev 02).

Thank you all :wink:

Hi and welcome to the openSUSE Forums!
If the HD620 is all that you have on your laptop, you *need nothing *from the Nvidia repo.
If you have also a discrete GPU, please open a terminal and cppy/paste here the result of the following command:

sudo hwinfo --gfxcard

so that we can help finding the most suitable driver.

Something is missing in your story. Why would you need an NVidia driver for an Intel HD 620? Does it have Optimus? Please provide output from

inxi -Gxx

using Konsole or Gnome Terminal or an Xterm if you are able to log into an X session of any kind. You may need to install inxi first

zypper in inxi

or using YaST.

Thank you all for the replies and for the welcome!

Maybe you are right and i don’t have to install any drivers. I asked because a program in wine crash saying that “some video drivers are missing”. I’ve a PC with a GeForce 750 Ti and i’ve installed Nvidia drivers, but i’m not sure i have to do it for a HD 620, so i asked… Let me know what do you think :wink:

Confirming that you don’t need anything from the Nvidia repo, your laptop is good to go as is.
You are currently using the “modesetting” video driver, which is the default for an HD620. Maybe wine is looking for the (obsolete?) xf86-video-intel driver?
I’m not a wine expert, but maybe wine has a problem?

Visto il nome italiano, ti ringrazio OrsoBruno! At this point i think that the problem is on wine, so i will search something about it. Thank to all for the answers, i’ve changed to opensuse few weeks ago but i alredy like its community rotfl!

Già, si trova dela gente fantastica qui.
You may post the exact error from that program running on wine in the “Applications” subforum or in the “Games” one (if the complaining program is a game, of course).

I will do it! Thank you again!
