Hello , I’m a Linux noob but have been running opensuse TW (KDE) with no issues for around a year now. Today I read about a software called “deepin music player” and wanted to install it. When I tried installing it via Yast’s “Install/Remove Software” it said there was a conflict and one of the “resolutions” was to change the “Mesa” vendor from “PAC-MAN” to “opensuse”, so I selected that. A bunch of changes took place and the install finished.
Now after restarting my PC, it loads upto the screen that has “geeko” in a lightbulb and then hangs. I hit Ctrl+alt+F1 and it says my opensuse TW ver: 20170622 - kernel 126.96.36.199-default (tty1). Now I have no clue what to do? I was thinking maybe I should do a “zypper” update to try and fix this?
Any help is appreciated, I’d like to get back to using my PC the way it was before. If you need more information from me, please ask. Thanks in advance.
I deleted the folders ~/.cache/ and /var/lib/sddm/.cache/ but that didn’t help :(. Situation still the same.
@ndc33: I’m on an older kernel b’cos that was the last time I did an update. Everything was working well, so I never bothered updating TW. That’s why I’m thinking maybe it’s high time I did an update now?
Here I’m getting this error: (with both versions of drivers) [FONT=.SFUIText]An error occurred while “building kernel modules”[/FONT] [FONT=.SFUIText]See /var/log/nvidia-installer.log for details [/FONT]
I looked at the .log file, but I can’t make any sense of it and I don’t know how to copy it to a USB drive. I also looked at the nvidia driver page and it seems that the latest driver version is 390.25. again don’t Know how to copy it to my PC or whether it will help.
