So after a long time of trying to troubleshoot I am at a loss of what to do. After switching to Windows I tried to boot back into opensuse 42.2 again only to find out that it would not start the GUI. I use plasma 5.8 if i’m not mistaking.
I remember trying to configure my quadro K1100m, I thought it was fine, but it appears not.
So when I boot I get the console, when I try to start plasma using plasmashell (non elevated or with su permission) will return:
QXcbConnection: Could not connect to display Aborted (core dumped)
So I used /sbin/lspci -nnk | grep VGA -A2 to check whether my gpus were present and what they were using as drivers:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller : Intel bla bla [8086:0416](rev 06) Subsytem: Lenovo device [17aa:221e] Kernel driver in use: i915 01:00.0 VGAS compatible controller : Nvidia corporation [GK107GLM] [10de:0ff6](rev a1) Subsytem: Lenovo device [17aa:221e] Kernel modules: nouveau, nvidia_drm, nvidia
Now I am especially wondering about the last part because it just doesnt seem right to have 3 drivers installed?
Now what would be the best course of action to regain acces to my graphical user interface? Also what steps should I take to understand this process better? The provided nvidia instructions havent helped me much.
Thanks in advance for helping!
