Installed the latest snapshot of openSUSE Tumbleweed (09-09-2016) and my monitor(s) don’t seem to be recognised correctly by oS.
I had to enable “nomodeset” as a boot option when installing Tumbleweed otherwise I got no display output at all (worth noting that this issue did not occur with Leap 42.1). I am running KDE and have an Nvidia GTX 970 - currently using the nouveau rather than proprietary drivers.
I installed Tumbleweed successfully and can boot into it, but my display resolution is stuck at 640x480. The resolution in the GRUB menu is also ridiculously low. See the image below for the Display Configuration:
The output from xrandr is:
xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default Screen 0: minimum 640 x 480, current 640 x 480, maximum 640 x 480 default connected primary 640x480+0+0 0mm x 0mm 640x480 73.00*
The contents of 50-monitor.conf in the Xorg conf folder is:
# sure you don't have in use another one laying around e.g. in another # xorg.conf.d file or even a generic xorg.conf file. More details can # be found in https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=32430. # #Section "Monitor" # Identifier "Default Monitor" # # ## If your monitor doesn't support DDC you may override the # ## defaults here # #HorizSync 28-85 # #VertRefresh 50-100 # # ## Add your mode lines here, use e.g the cvt tool # #EndSection
In YaST under Hardware Information the monitor specs are all correct and present (i.e. refresh rates, maximum resolution, etc. are all listed there as well as the brand and model).
My gut feeling is that the xorg configuration just hasn’t taken place correctly, but then I thought that xorg had actually been depreciated so not sure where to go from here.
Appreciate any help yous can give.
