I am a new user and use opensuse for school projects. I’ve had problems with it since the beginning when the screen resolution was locked at 800x600. After installing nvidia drivers I can get into OS only in secure boot. Could anyone help me based on a picture of the error message I get when trying to boot into normal mode? As someone from my last thread asked, the fans do work.
You have a dual graphics setup, a so called Optimus configuration. This won’t work with the NVIDIA drivers, unless you are able to disable the Intel graphics in the BIOS ( some laptops can ). If not, you should use suse-prime
To that end what I would try is keeping suse-prime, blacklisting nouveau, uninstalling nvidia drivers, and for good measure including nouveau.modeset=0 on kernel cmdline. If i915 wouldn’t load automatically I’d try it manually, though I’d expect suse-prime to be handling this. If it didn’t work, I’d report a suse-prime bug so as to get Stefan Dirsch (suse-prime maintainer) to look into it.
Hey, so I tried what you said. in recovery mode I blacklisted nouveau, uninstalled nvidia drivers and did the nouveau.nomodeset=0 and it looks like the system broke down completely. KDE wont load because of failure of drivers. Im completely lost. Any ideas?
Needless to say that I’m a total newbie when it comes to linux in general, so if you have suggestions I’d kindly ask you to explain it in more detail please. I have some important school work i need to finish before sunday so I’d be really grateful if you helped me with this problem.
You should be able to boot to a login screen or a black screen. If a black screen, wait a minute or two, then try Ctrl-Alt-F2. That should bring up a login prompt from which you can run text mode yast to remove the blacklisting and remove nouveau.modeset=0. This should reenable use of the NVidia GPU and Plasma as long as uninstallation of NVidia drivers was complete. It’s possible /etc/X11/ could still have xorg.conf or files in xorg.conf.d/ left behind and blocking the FOSS drivers. If NVidia driver uninstallation failed in any way, you might be forced to reinstall them or reinstall Leap.
