I have just updated to LEAP 15.1 from 42.3 and upon booting it is saying plasma is unable to start as it could not correctly use OpenGL 2. Please check that your graphic drivers are set up correctly.
From what I remember I used the G04 Nvidia drivers on 42.3. Please can someone help in letting me know how to get around this I can’t actually do anything at the moment. It is set to automatic log in (it’s a PC at home, not a laptop) so can’t even get to the log in screen.
I managed to get to a text log in, I used zypper to install the nvidia repo, uninstall then reinstall my drivers using the newer repo but still no luck. When I close the first window I am left with ksplashgml closed unexpectedly…
hmmm should have worked. This is why I always do a fresh install and just keep my home. I keep two root partitions that I rotate for each new version I install that why I can drop back to the previous if the new version has problems.
I had a look at the repos using zypper and found that opensuse 15.1 update was not enabled. I enabled it, refreshed the repos, then forced an update. It asked to update nvidia drivers which I’m now doing, let’s see what happens with another reboot…
Did it work OK before you installed tainting drivers? All my PCIe GeForce and Quadro cards, including one GeForce 8600 GT, work fine in 15.1 (and TW) with the upstream default DDX, modesetting, by having neither NVidia drivers nor xf86-video-nouveau installed.
I have problem on two pcs. Dolution is a bit rough - for me it worked:
i didn’t manage the build of nvidia-module with yast, no matter how many times i installed the nvidia-packages, so after install the drivers with yast i did:
→ this builds the kernel-modules
after that, modprobe nvidia should work. Restart an check if drivers/plasma works.
Btw: i had some error not getting nvidia-uvm working. Anybody got that running?
