Am on tumbleweed version 20180406, kernel 4.16. My graphics card is an NVIDIA GTX 680. Have read this thread but am not sure it is applicable to my situation, as even choosing the old kernel version (4.15.13) from GRUB advanced options still leads to a terminal login. And, even if it is, I am not 100% sure on how to apply the patch so any help there would be great too.
Also apologies for not knowing how to format with inline code, I can’t seem to find that option anywhere in the editor.
I have tried a few things:
, which gives
$DISPLAY is not set or cannot connect to the X server.
So then running
(which is apparently deprecated, but it was still a suggested fix) says that
xinit failed. /usr/bin/Xorg is not setuid, maybe that's the reason? If so either use a display manager ...
I have tried running
sudo zypper dup
, but it says everything is up to date.
I have tried going through
to install nvidia drivers (playing around with either
x11-video-nvidiaG04, xf86-video-nouveau, and xf86-video-nv
whilst making sure to edit
), but all versions do not seem to give the GUI login.
I have also played around with editing
to change my desktop manager, but that has given no success either (sddm or kdm both). Running
systemctl status sddm
shows that it is active, however there is a line:
Process: 1829 ExecStartPre=/usr/bin/plymouth quit --retain-splash (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)
which might be of use.
Any help would be great!
