My Geforce GT 610 is not detected by the lated Nvidia drivers

Open Suse 21.3

I am running the latest Nvidia drivers on my machine, They do not detect the Geforce GT 610 by VERTO

It defaults to the nouveau driver, which results in the my screen not being recognized for proper graphic size, nor is the second monitor detected at all.

I recently replaced the video card as the older nvidia card died. Before that everything was working correctly.

Is there something I should do to force the Nvidia driver which claims to support the geforce 610 gpu.

Thanks
Brian

Can you confirm if you have installed the nvidia driver from the nvidia repo available for openSUSE?
Your old card may have been using a different driver than your new GT610

FYI: When the nvidia driver is installed, a blacklist entry is made against nouveau, so it seems unlikely that nouveau is in use if the nvidia driver is actually installed.

Yes you need the GO3 flavor of driver an older card may(probably ) used a lower GO#

here is the xorg log from my startup

There are a couple of other threads that cover some issues with the nvidia drivers
But it doesn’t sound the same, as you describe your system falling back to nouveau. Where these threads had fallback to framebuffer.
During the crisis I was using the 02 version of the nvidia driver from: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/Lord_LT:/drivers/openSUSE_13.1_Update/

He may describe that, but the log file tells that his system is falling back to vesa. :wink:
The issue is of course the same: the nvidia kernel module cannot be loaded.

@ercoupeflyer:
What packages have you actually installed now?

rpm -qa | egrep "(kernel|nvidia)"

And try to reboot. At the moment there seems to be a problem with loading the nvidia kernel module on the first boot after installing the driver.
It should work fine though afterwards.

I have tried to restart the machine several time with same results.

Right. This cannot work.
You are using kernel-xen (your Xorg log told this already, but I somehow overlooked it back then), but you installed the nvidia driver for kernel-desktop only.
Why are you using kernel-xen anyway? You cannot use the nvidia driver packages with that one.
Better remove it if you don’t need it.

If you do need kernel-xen you have to install the driver “the hard way”. But I cannot guarantee you that it will even work with kernel-xen, I just don’t know.

I have tried everything suggested, it still does not work, does anyone have any other ideas

And what was it that you tried?

Are you using kernel-desktop now?

Please post the Xorg log again.
But please use http://susepaste.org or similar.

No still using xen kernel. Have always used it, including with my previous video card by nvidia that burned out and i replaced with new card, that caused this problem.

The desktop kernal loads on top of that. Ok so I did not load the hard way, what does that mean?

Well, I have no idea about XEN, and if or how it worked with your previous video card.
But your Xorg log states that the nvidia kernel module cannot be loaded. That is your problem, not that the card is not detected by the driver.
And IMHO this is because you use kernel-xen, but only have the nvidia modules for kernel-desktop installed (there are none for kernel-xen).
Also from your X log:

Current Operating System: Linux VirtServer.westwood 3.7.10-1.28-xen #1 SMP Mon Feb 3 14:11:15 UTC 2014 (c9a2c6c) x86_64

In your situation I would try to install the nvidia driver “the hard way” as already mentioned, which means that you download the .run installer from nvidia’s homepage and use that to install the driver.
See also: https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:NVIDIA_the_hard_wayYou should of course uninstall all nvidia packages first though.

On second thought, you might also just try to reinstall the kernel module. Maybe that would “fix” the problem.

sudo zypper in -f nvidia-gfxG03-kmp-desktop

Or “Update Unconditionally” in YaST.

Then I have in fact tried the hard way, the run exits saying it does not support xen kernel…

Very strange wonder how it has ever worked then.

oh well then, no driver support for virtual machine root , interesting as how then should i run all my virtual machines, or is there a way to attach the video device to a virtual machine running as a desktop

So now I am ready for alternate suggestions, as the vga driver cant even handle my single screen, whos density is too large for the driver with a frame 30% smaller than the actual device let alone my second screen which does not work at all.

How can I use my hardware and still have virtual machines loaded and running.

Others must in fact be doing this.

Can i run the desktop in domain 0?

Ok. But then why are you surprised that it doesn’t work, when the installer already told you it is not supported?

Very strange wonder how it has ever worked then.

Yes, strange indeed.
Did you really use nvidia, or was it nouveau rather?

Apparently this might be possible with VGA Passthrough:
http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Xen_VGA_Passthrough

You might be able to use the nvidia driver in the guest then.

You are using the vesa driver at the moment.

First of all you should uninstall the nvidia driver completely.
Maybe you would then be able to use nouveau at least. Having the nvidia driver installed, blocks nouveau from being used.

Use something else like VMWare or VirtualBox… :wink:

You could then use the standard kernel-desktop as host kernel, and therefore the nvidia driver.

Others must in fact be doing this.

Can i run the desktop in domain 0?

I have absolutely no experience with XEN.
But I suppose it is not possible to run kernel-desktop as host.
That’s the whole point of kernel-xen, isn’t it?

Ok I removed nvidia drivers, it did not remove the blacklist for nouveau driver. It has also left the /usr/bin/X pointing to /var/lib/X11/X pointing to /usr/bin/X.x11-video-nvidiaG03
Which was deleted, where should it point if thats not installed, nothing works now! It seems the x server needs a driver pointer, where should I link to?

This should not happen. The blacklist file is included in the package, so rpm will delete it when you uninstall the package.

Did you really install all the nvidia package?

rpm -qa | grep nvidia

Maybe you also tried to install the driver via the .run installer?

It has also left the /usr/bin/X pointing to /var/lib/X11/X pointing to /usr/bin/X.x11-video-nvidiaG03
Which was deleted, where should it point if thats not installed, nothing works now! It seems the x server needs a driver pointer, where should I link to?

# ls -l /usr/bin/Xlrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14 25. Apr 14:22 /usr/bin/X -> /var/lib/X11/X
# ls -l /var/lib/X11/X

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 30. Jun 16:53 /var/lib/X11/X -> /usr/bin/Xorg



But actually it shouldn’t matter since at least KDM launches Xorg, not X.

Try to reinstall the package xorg-x11-server to set it right again.

sudo zypper in -f xorg-x11-server

Ok for the moment, I have done the following which worked,

I reinstalled nvidia which replaced the missing file, I then deleted the blacklist for the nouveau drivers

Everything seems to be working correctly now,

Will try linking the way you suggested next.

thanks
Brian
