today I’ve tried to make manual update from 12.1 to 12.2 and then to 12.3
as the result both network manaher and X server had stoped to work after rebooting
I’ve fixed problem with Network but when I try to
there are error that nvidia kernels are missings (I’ve reistanlled drivers and reloaded nvidia-xconfig but no effect). Could you suggest me possible solution ? I have also 13.1 suse CD might it be better to reintall suse using it keeping all DATA files from my PC?
You should be able to find all installed nVidia drivers with zypper se -si nvidia and then zypper rm’ing those packages. If you remove xorg.conf you should be able to boot into X, if not, holler here and we’ll see what we can do!
(se = search, si = search packages that are installed)
Also could you copy paste some relevant information regarding the nVidia adapter from both; dmesg (run it as root) and /var/log/messages and /var/log/Xorg.0.log - seeing what the errors there are might help us tell you what is causing the problem.
Then your installation should be ok.
“Only” the nvidia driver is not working.
What do you mean with “X is active but login is possibly only with Failsafe mode”?
Do you get dropped back to the login screen, when you try to login? In that case, try to select a different desktop session there and report whether this works.
Or do you not get a login screen at all?
This might be a permission issue. Can you login as root?
What nvidia and kernel packages do you have installed?
rpm -qa | egrep "nvidia|kernel"
Please do a normal boot, reboot to recovery mode, and post the file /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old then.
And, as Miuku already wrote, it would be nice if you would specify your actual graphics card as well…
it’s hard to copy logs because I’m writting from the laptop but in generally I think that the problem is due to the fact that I’ve intalled nvidia drivers from 12.3 repo on my out-of-dated 12.1 suse so I thinkin any case the much better will be update it or alternatively intall 13.1 suse. In any case I’d like to keep all files and software alive so it seems that update will be better
I thought recovery mode works fine, so you should be able to post the logs from there.
Or is your internet connection not working?
You could also copy the logs to a USB stick or similar and then post it from the Laptop.

I though you are in 12.3 now? So the 12.3 drivers should of course work
Have you tried to remove all packages with “nvidia” in it already? Search for “nvidia” in YaST->Software Management, and uninstall all 3/5 (depending on the driver version).
Remove /etc/X11/xorg.conf as well, and you should at least get a graphical system using the nouveau driver.
Then you/we could try to install the nvidia driver again and get it to work.
And why do you think the 12.3 drivers would work after you upgraded to 13.1?
But I thought you upgraded to 12.3 already, or have I misunderstood something?
And even on 12.1 you should be able to get your system to work again by uninstalling the 12.3 nvidia packages and removing /etc/X11/xorg.conf it it exists (as this would probably force the nvidia driver).
I’ve tried to upgrade system to 12.3 from repo but there were some dependency warnings during it which might produce my issue.
The system has been upgraded fine but there is some problem with the network
on the mahine there are 2 eth0 and eth1 adapters where eth1shuld be used with all required parameters. When I restart eth1 the network works fine but always stop working after 1 min . It seems that some conflict between both adapters exists. How could I completely remove eth0 and switch to the et1 always ?
Also some questions: there were two desctops installed from 12.1 (gnome and mate) which not works with 13.1. How could I deleate it and reinstall manualy from the 13.1 repo ?
ah problem with the network manager has been solved using network config utility
the another problem is the drivers for nvidia again
I’ve updated drivers from the 13.1 repo (this time I’m using 13.1 suse) and run nvidia-xconfig
but the drivers are not recognized by suse (the X is started from the default video drivers) althought it has been recognized by zypper. What should be specified here ?
