Re: [opensuse-factory] Leap: support for HDMI external monitor?

I need HDMI standard output support from my laptop to external monitors and projectors.
Shouldn't this be supported now by the current Nouveau driver and kernel, or do we really still have to wait for the propriaryNvidia driver to achieve this simple task?

While I get a SVGA connection to work for the external monitor, it tells "no video input" when using a HDMI cable.

Here follows the output from Leap 42.1 current where xrandr just tell "HDMI-1 disconnected":

# lspci -nnk | grep VGA -A2
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation G92GLM [Quadro FX 3600M] [10de:061c] (rev a2)
Subsystem: NVIDIA Corporation Device [10de:0518]
Kernel driver in use: nouveau

# xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 1200, maximum 8192 x 8192
LVDS-1 connected primary 1920x1200+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 367mm x 229mm
1920x1200 60.0*+
1920x1080 60.0
VGA-1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DVI-D-1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
HDMI-1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
1920x1080 60.0

# xrandr --addmode HDMI-1 1920x1080
# xrandr --output HDMI-1 --mode 1920x1080 --right-of LVDS-1
xrandr: Configure crtc 1 failed (the internal LVDS-1 goes black a moment)

And still xrandr say that HDMI-1 is disconnected ............!?

As I read another thread on the same issue (though it is almost five years old), I wonder if basic HDMI video out support on Nvidia cards is a generic problem with Nouveau? I have only got this to work on this laptop previously using the propriary Nvidia driver on SLED.
