Only 800x600 resolution

Hello everybody,

I bought a new laptop with the i7 intel Graphics 520 and a Nvidia Geforce GTX 950M.
My problem is, that I’ve got only a resolution of 800x600 and i couldn’t change it.
These are my outputs:

xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
Screen 0: minimum 800 x 600, current 800 x 600, maximum 800 x 600
default connected primary 800x600+0+0 0mm x 0mm

By the way, bumblebee works fine. When i run the



optirun glxspheres

i can see them both.

this is my first post. I hope I did everything right:)



P.S.: I’m sorry for my bad english. I’m from Germany

Hi, welcome to the Forum!
Apparently your new box has a Skylake CPU (and integrated graphics). I have read that these brand new chips are not well supported by the stock 4.1.x kernel in Leap 42.1 and need at least kernel 4.4.
You may try a Tumbleweed liveCD, which has such a newer kernel, to test if this is the case.
Or you may try installing a newer kernel from the Kernel:Stable repository if you dare to experiment…

BTW “standard” Leap with bumblebee works beautifully here on Haswell (i74720HQ) + GTX960M.

Thanks, Man! This did it! :wink: A Kernel Update :slight_smile:

Mabe this helps:

Please also note the suse-prime package. It allows you to either use the Intel or the NVIDIA to run the entire X session on.
