some time ago I read that the ‘new’ kernel 3.12 should support NVIDIA optimus and therefore I decided to give it a try. On my Thinkpad T420S I switch from the integrated graphics only mode to Nvidia Optimus which infact allows the NVS4200M and the internal Intel graphics to be used.
Then in booted in 13.1 and installed a 3.12 kernel from the repository and successfully booted into it. Then, I added the Nvidia repository ( ftp://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/13.1/ ) and installed the automatically suggested Nvidia drivers. Now, after rebooting, my X11 seems to be ‘broken’ and I get the following error:
10.913] (EE) No devices detected.
10.913] (EE) Fatal server error:
10.913] (EE) no screens found(EE)
Unfortunately, I dont know how to open the console, because the only thing I see is the boot log. The linked log files I extracted from my windows which is installed on another partition. Is there any way to fix this problem? Thank you very much in advance!
Thanks for your reply!
I booted into recovery mode and deinstalled the 3 nvidia components. Then I rebooted, but again there is a problem. Then, I switched again into the integrated graphics only mode and got the same problem (please see log here 8.436] This is a pre-release version of the X server from The X.Org Foun - Pastebin.com](http://pastebin.com/EsYuMfXV) ).
It seems that its still trying to load the nvidia module. How to tell him that it should load the intel module instead?
