I’ve been trying to update my systems “tumbleweed” nvidia driver and kernel for months now and every time I try to include these in a dup the system will not boot into the gui and dumps me into a basic terminal login. The system is otherwise up to date except the kernel and drivers; this is what I’m Currently running as the last known combo to work.
rpm -qa nvidia-*; uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 5.17.4-1-default #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Apr 20 07:43:03 UTC 2022 (75e9961) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I’d like to update the kernel and nvidia drivers to see if it fixes the issue with the darn kde taskbar freezing randomly and making me switch to another terminal and back to get it working about. It’s annoying and disruptive to say the least. Seems there’s others out there with this issue to per reddit and google searches.
If you’re using the G04 drivers with the new 6.x kernel and used zypper to install it like normal “zypper dup” how were you successful? I’ve been running tumbleweed for years now and other than having to wait a few weeks for a driver patch when a new kernel dropped it’s been a simple “zypper dup” and reboot.
I’ve been watching these url/s to see when new drivers and patches come out. It seems like the latest driver and kernel should work. I just tried it and it again dumps me into a terminal on reboot. Is there a script we can use to gather debug info encase I decide at this point to file a bug if in fact that’s what it is?
