Description

Preparation:

  1. Find suggested hardware in Desktop team:
        - ThinkPad T410 NVIDIA GT218M [NVS 3100M]
  2. Determine the model of your graphic card via:
        lspci | grep -i VGA
     
    Steps:
  3. Install SLED12SP3(with SCC registration) on laptop with NVIDIA graphics card
  4. Log in to the default desktop session(SLE-classic)

    3.1 Check if the graphic card driver is installed and running

        run as root user: lspci -nnk | grep -i vga -A3

        or: hwinfo --gfxcard

    3.2 Check the NVIDIA repo is enabled and usable

        run as root user: zypper lr && zypper ref

    4.1 Install Mesa-demo-x via:

        zypper in Mesa-demo-x

    4.2 Check whether accelerated OpenGL applications(eg:glxgears) work with
    the video driver

        Run the command: glxgears

    4.3 Try covering the glxgears window with other windows, move the window
    around and activate the overview mode then deactivate it

  5. The system should boot successfully to the graphical login screen, at the optimal
    resolution for your monitor, with no errors

  6. Log in successfully and Gnome Shell should be started with no errors

    3.1 The output should contain:     Kernel driver in use: nvidia

    3.2 The NVIDIA repo should be listed and zypper refresh successfully

    4.2 glxgears should run properly and with full acceleration and behave
    as any other window. A new window with colored spinning gears should appear, and the
    terminal window will start displaying frame rates every five seconds.

    4.3 Covering them should work properly, they should move smoothly, and
    should render properly in the overview mode"
