New installation Graphic card Nvidia GT 710 not recognized

Hi guys !
I’ve just installed SLES for SAP Applications 15 SP2 and I only have available 1024*768 screen resolution on my machine, it’s not the best:(The graphic car is an NVIDIA 710 GT.
I’m very new in Linux world so i don’t know how to investigate this problem.
I hope you can help me.
Thank you and best regards.

Hi
Is the Nvidia repository added and active? Are the nvidia rpms installed?

/sbin/lspci -nnk | egrep -A3 "VGA|Display|3D"
zypper lr -E | grep NVIDIA
zypper se -si nvidia

I have;

/sbin/lspci -nnk | egrep -A3 "VGA|Display|3D"

Hi Malcom,
thank a lot for your answer.
When i execute your first script ("/sbin/lspci -nnk …") i have the following result:

02:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation GK208B [GeForce GT 710] [10de:128b] (rev a1)

zypper lr -E |grep NVIDIA Zipper doesn’t give me anything, my problem must have come from there certainly, but I don’t know what to do :frowning:

Hi
OK, so no driver or repository present :wink: I see it’s part of the Workstation Extension, but since it’s a public repo you need to manually add;

su -
init 3
zypper ar -f -g -n "SLE-15-SP2-NVIDIA-Driver" https://download.nvidia.com/suse/sle15sp2 SLE-15-SP2-NVIDIA-Driver
zypper ref (and trust the key)
zypper in x11-video-nvidiaG05 nvidia-glG05 nvidia-gfxG05-kmp-default nvidia-computeG05
mkinitrd (run this just to be sure the nouveau driver is blacklisted)
systemctl reboot

It worked!!! Thank a lot!!! :slight_smile:
I don’t know how you got around with all these parameters :slight_smile:

Hi
Glad you have it sorted :slight_smile: Just be aware the repository can be delayed in producing rpms after a kernel upgrade, so don’t be concerned if this happens, just boot to the older kernel until updated rpms arrive.

Thank again Malcom :slight_smile:
Now i’m going to install Java, maybe an another discussion? :smile:

Hi
You should be fine, but if you hit issues another thread is welcome, that’s what the forum is for :wink:

Hi,
in fact, in this initial post, i was in SLES 12 SP4, and the Malcom’s solution worked. This morning i installed SLES 15 SP2 and the solution does not work.
The command: zypper ar -f -g -n "SLE-15-SP2-NVIDIA-Driver" https://download.nvidia.com/suse/sle15sp2 SLE-15-SP2-NVIDIA-Driver give me some problems:

Problem: nothing provides gcc needed by nvidia-gfxG05-kmp-default-450.57_k5.3.18_22-38.1.x86_64
 Solution 1: do not install nvidia-gfxG05-kmp-default-450.57_k5.3.18_22-38.1.x86_64
 Solution 2: break nvidia-gfxG05-kmp-default-450.57_k5.3.18_22-38.1.x86_64 by ignoring some of its dependencies

Choose from above solutions by number or skip, retry or cancel [1/2/s/r/c/d/?] (c):

Hi
Seems you have two repositories active for Nvidia cards, I would remove the one I suggested and use the azure one? Anyway you need to install gcc zypper in gcc since it needs that to rebuild parts of the nvidia driver.
