Nouveau drivers for openSUSE
This page will guide you with the installation of Nouveau drivers for openSUSE.
The first step is to add the appropriate package repositories for your version. The recent packages for openSUSE (for both i586 and x86_64) (with Gallium3D included) are listed below.
You have to configure/use at least the following repositories (in addition to the base repositories):
On recent versions of openSUSE the nouveau driver packages will be installed automatically.
The X11:XOrg repository may provide more up-to-date packages but they are mostly already outdated when they appear.
The former home:jobermayr with daily packages was dropped in early openSUSE 12.2 time: http://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=771392#c76
You need to perform the following configuration:
- On system start, KMS is loaded automatically.
- Module loading:
modprobe nouveau modeset=1.
System does not boot
In case your system does not boot, try the boot parameter
nomodeset. So the system should start without KMS enabled into console.
