[opensuse] monitor and video card not working
I will try sending this again with a subject line that is a little more descriptive:

Hi all,

Ok next problem. I have a new motherboard that the manual says it uses "Integrated programmable Shader model 3.0 DirectX 9 graphics processor"

My screen looks just like a series of green, black, and white horizontal lines. There is nothing remotely decipherable about it.

I verified the problem is not the monitor itself by plugging in a different monitor which I am using on another system and I got the same screen - lots of horizontal lines.

I ran the lspci command and here are the results:

00:0d.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation C61 [GeForce 7025/nForce 630n] (rev a2)

I used midnight commander to view the /var/log/xorg.0.log file. It is a really long file. I managed to figure out how to mount a usb drive and copy the file into that so that I could bring the file over here to my laptop and email it. I will paste a copy of it in my first reply.

So, where do I go from here? If I can get the video card working, then I can set up thunderbird and email from that computer, instead of hand copying everything here on my laptop, and then troubleshooting will be easier.

George
