Dumb question

Comments

  • Again, I'm in a read-only system snapshot. I don't think I CAN affect this system. I have to figure out how to manipulate the live system, which currently won't even complete the boot process far enough to give me a command line.

    I think. :/

  • I just discovered the command 'snapper' but I have no idea IF that will help me, let alone how.

  • Found the Snapper app in Yast2. Frankly, this looks like something I could totally break my system with. Pretty sure I can identify the pre/post pair where I corrupted the system with the OpenSUSE nVidia driver.

    Did yoe see my three comments above about snapper? They came across on page 2, so I think maybe you missed them.

  • Did I lose you? Still not sure what to do here. I can't seem to find the Snapper instructions for performing a recovery while running IN a system snapshot. I guess I'll read through everything again and take my best stab at it.

    The instructions I read, said that after I had a successful boot, it would boot in to that snapshot, but it doesn't seem to be working.

    Pretty sure I have to do some sort of command to hammer it in to place.

    @jtlong@gmx.com Hi, should be able to select from the grub boot menu under advanced? It will boot read only, then you can roll back? https://documentation.suse.com/sled/15-SP1/html/SLED-all/cha-snapper.html

  • Hey!! The simple snapper rollback command that didn't work last time actually worked this time! Makes me think that there might be something terribly wrong with my kernel or something.. but I'm going to roll with it. :)
    I'm going to attempt to add that Nvidia repo that I THOUGHT was added when I first installed the system, then try to install G05 from there. :)
    Here goes nothing...

  • Oh WOW.. I somehow missed that cat command you posted earlier. One sec, I'll do that before I try to switch video drivers...

  • Hmm.. Yast updater had an update. I'm going to run that through a couple of times before installing the G05 driver..

  • No bueno.
    I tried everything I could think of. (I did get back to a stable desktop. 'Stable.'
    Two things I notice. Even though I gave the Nvidia repos a priority of 75, it APPEARS to be using the X11 vendor???

    Both the G04 and G05 (appear to) try to use the X11 vendor
    Clicking the 'Allow Vendor Change' tick in Yast2 has no noticeable effect.
    The second thing I notice is that while switching to the above listed G05 package(s), it throws an error about some missing alternate, and a missing alternate alternate??

    That's all the new info I've got. HELP! :'(

  • malcolmlewismalcolmlewis Knowledge Partner

    @jtlong@gmx.com Hi, I suspect the update alternative error is from a failed install, maybe the manual way, or an openSUSE lurker...?
    I don't see that error here on SP2...

    To be honest, I really do suggest a clean install of SLED 15 (SP2 would be better), then can work on what's missing from package hub to get what your wanting ;)

  • ..but, last time you said I should switch to Leap 15.2 :(

    @jtlong@gmx.com To be honest, if you have a subscription then yes for SLED, just bite the bullet and go for it. Else for sure Leap 15.2...

    So it's still not using the driver? /sbin/lspci -nnk | egrep -A3 "VGA|Display|3D"

  • That was an IF of the G05, so you could compare apples and apples. Here's the G04 that's currently installed:|

    Digging around, I have discovered that that specific file and it's alternates are for OpenGL. I'm THINKING that what I need to do is install G05, again, then figure out what which it installs for the nVidia version of libglx.so then either switch a link to that file or change a pointer in a file or something.

    Here's the command you requested just now:
    linux-gx1p:/home/james # /sbin/lspci -nnk | egrep -A3 "VGA|Display|3D"
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation GF108GLM [Quadro 1000M] [10de:0dfa] (rev a1)

    Kernel driver in use: nvidia
    Kernel modules: nvidia_drm, nvidia
    linux-gx1p:/home/james #

    off-topic: How do you make the code do the 'pretty-print' thing? When I try to switch it to 'code' by selecting my code, it just pastes a blurb in front of the selection, and doesn't seem to do anything else.

    possibly off-topic: I got this warning about a repo signing key. Perhaps I'll need to renew my paid license thing anyway?

    Another concern about upgrading to 15.2 is that since Linux use is dropping off dramatically, a lot of the old stuff isn't getting updated anymore. I know some of the command line tools I used to use back in the 10.3 days aren't even available anymore, which is part of why I can't just fix this stuff myself. I don't mind learning new stuff, but I do NOT want to get stuck in a hole where different utilities and features I need don't even exist in a new build. I know there's lots of fringe stuff, like GNome Desktop enhancements thaa are slowly falling away, because nobody is developing them.

    @jtlong@gmx.com Checking again, yours is a 1000M need the M1000M fro G05...
    It's just markup for the code tags... so for in line use one of these at start and finish ` for a block use three of them at start and finish.

    Oh good grief.

    So... what do we need to look at to fix my desktop locking up now? isn't there a log or something that should give us a clue?

  • malcolmlewismalcolmlewis Knowledge Partner

    @jtlong@gmx.com just zypper in the nvidia G04 drivers/kmp, it will just switch them over.

  • Whatsa kmp? I added the nvidia repo.

  • FYI, I just had to do a hard reboot. This issue is still ongoing. I still have to alt+f2 r nearly every time it wakes up.. sometimes while I'm working.
    What's the next step, switch it back to Wayland? I think you said it wasn't on Wayland at one point.

    @jtlong@gmx.com Hi, hard to say, any thing in the ~/.local/share/xorg logs, ~/.xsession-erros, journalctl? Your running btrfs? How is the disk usage, maintenance running eg balance, defrag etc?

  • So.. I went to the xorg folder, typed 'grep nvidia'.. and it just wandered off in to a corner and stared at the wall for a while..
    Yeah.. um.. I guess I'll give it like half an hour and see if it's going to respond ever?
    Moving on.. the .xsession-errors file hasn't logged anything since December 1st. It has six lines, total:

    gpg-connect-agent: no gpg-agent running in this session
    gpg-connect-agent: no gpg-agent running in this session
    IceWM: reboot... (/bin/sh -c 'systemctl reboot ||:')
    XIO:  fatal IO error 0 (Success) on X server ":0"
          after 1261 requests (1261 known processed) with 12 events remaining.
    icewmbg: Can't open display: :0. X must be running and $DISPLAY set.
    

    There is also a file names xsession-errors.old which is also dated December 1st, with seven lines:

    gpg-connect-agent: no gpg-agent running in this session
    gpg-connect-agent: no gpg-agent running in this session
    WARNING: '/etc/xdg/menus/suse-screensavers.menu' does not exist
    WARNING: '/etc/xdg/menus/kde-settings.menu' does not exist
    WARNING: '/etc/xdg/menus/applications-kmenuedit.menu' does not exist
    WARNING: '/etc/xdg/menus/custom.menu' does not exist
    IceWM: reboot... (/bin/sh -c 'systemctl reboot ||:')
    

    Ah! I see that that is from the first time the G05 driver, broke the Gnome install and I installed IceWM from the 640x480 Gnome desktop.
    I'm not to sure what to query journalctl with to get useful output.
    I don't know what btrfs is. I've got a stupid fast SSD drive installed, with nearly 150GB free in linux. I don't notice any slow downs.. but I have no idea if that's the best thing to use.. I imagine the SLED installer decided that that was best, maybe?

    My grep nvidia window is still froze up, I'm going to go ahead and close it. Sorry I couldn't figure out how to provide any useful feedback for you. :(

  • I'm trying to sort how to dig in to the Xorg log. Haven't gotten that far yet, but I DID discover that SLED considers the Nvidia sourced driver as 'tainting the kernel' by looking at /var/log/messages

    I don't see anything wrong here, but perhaps there's some session stuff or a daemon / driver that's wrong that you might recognize that I didn't?

  • Not sure if this is relative, but it looks troublesome:

  • This part looks ok though, so I dunno:

  • Apparently, the failure to unmount /var is because journald is holding it open while systemd is trying to close it.

  • In the systemd journal viewer I'm seeing multiple coredumps of two specific types:

    I'm PRETTY SURE this is OpenGL, and directly related to my issue! :D
