Re: NVidia GeForce GTX 780 driver doesn't work in LM20

Just fyi, I won't be contributing to this thread any more. I bought a cheap AMD Radeon 5500 XT. It works great out of the box already. And now I'm off to test games. Good luck to everyone with the NVidia threads here.

Re: NVidia GeForce GTX 780 driver doesn't work in LM20

It also failed ( screenshot ), but in a better way. It actually responded to CTL-ALT-DEL afterwards, so I didn't have to cold boot to get back here. And I already checked, but it locked up in a way that prevented any Xorg log being made again (or flushed from buffer to disk, or something). redact@re...

Re: NVidia GeForce GTX 780 driver doesn't work in LM20

I saw some messages scroll by quickly. I had my cellphone out to try to capture a photo, but it went to a black screen too quickly to capture anything at all. # nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig # nvidia-xconfig: version 450.57 Section "ServerLayout" Identifier "Layout...

Re: NVidia GeForce GTX 780 driver doesn't work in LM20

I installed the 440 driver and rebooted. Editing for 'nomodeset' didn't help. None of the other variations worked, but 2 of them failed in interesting ways. :) nolapic: produced a kernel panic and some hex info ( screenshot 1 , screenshot 2 ) pci=nomsi,noaer: some 'soft reset failed' messages, the L...

Re: NVidia GeForce GTX 780 driver doesn't work in LM20

I previously tried the 440-server driver when it was briefly the "recommended" version in the update manager. No difference. I tried earlier versions of drivers 390 and 340, but they don't help either. They have the advantage of adding pretty blue dots on the screen (instead of pure black), but that...

Re: NVidia GeForce GTX 780 driver doesn't work in LM20

It fails. Maybe that's good news, if somebody knows how to report to NVidia that their advertised driver does not work for my video card any more? I first ran into the familiar problem that CTL-ALT-Fn was not working in the Compatibility Mode USB startup. I poked around online, though, and discovere...

Re: NVidia GeForce GTX 780 driver doesn't work in LM20

I think? I was already on the 440 driver when my system worked fine in LM19.3. It's been a while since I last tried the 450 driver, so I downloaded that directly from their website. It seems the same driver is used for both the 780 and the 1650 cards. https://www.nvidia.com/Download/driverResults.as...

Re: NVidia GeForce GTX 780 driver doesn't work in LM20

I've been randomly launching my Steam games (native Linux, not Windows/Proton) to see what's usable. One of them gave me a specific warning message before launching: "Cannot create OpenGL context. Check that the drivers and hardware support at least OpenGL 4.3." So for grins, I tried "glxinfo | grep...

Re: NVidia GeForce GTX 780 driver doesn't work in LM20

Hmmm. I typed by hand previously and thought I got it right. I just used copy-and-paste from your post and got this new url. Looks like the same data to me, though. WAIT, yes, new 2nd url this time. https://termbin.com/gdu2 https://termbin.com/1wobh (the main log, not the .log.old one) Just for grin...

Re: NVidia GeForce GTX 780 driver doesn't work in LM20

I made the changes, rebooted. Got the black screen. There is no possible action at that point except a cold boot, so I cut power and rebooted again.

Went to Recovery, went to root console, purged nvidia, resumed to get here. Here is that upload:

Re: NVidia GeForce GTX 780 driver doesn't work in LM20

@roblm, that .conf file was not there. (More accurately, we previously renamed it to .confxxx, which is fine.) I installed the 440 driver and rebooted. Got the black screen. Isn't it CTL-ALT-F1 that's supposed to put me into tty1? No response. I tried it with other Fn combinations, but nothing respo...

Re: NVidia GeForce GTX 780 driver doesn't work in LM20

The errors were all within the gui, not the command line, so they were gone as I acknowledged them, thinking the next step would finally put me in the editor. Now that the resume file is established, it's not behaving that way any more. redact@redact:~$ xed admin:///etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume...

Re: NVidia GeForce GTX 780 driver doesn't work in LM20

Ouch. I got my hopes up, but it didn't work out for my machine. :( Your 'xed admin:' command threw all kinds of weird errors at me and failed to open, so I used a less complicated format that worked. Or seemed to. redact@redact:~$ more /etc/fstab # /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use...

Re: NVidia GeForce GTX 780 driver doesn't work in LM20

Those commands did not allow me to boot to gui desktop. :( I tried letting it boot normally. I tried using ESC to edit and change to 'nomodeset' on the main boot option, but neither worked. So, I booted again and dropped to recovery mode and ran some list commands to prove I did the rename correctly...

Re: NVidia GeForce GTX 780 driver doesn't work in LM20

I cannot boot to desktop, no. When I press ESC for GRUB then select recovery mode (with Nvidia drivers still installed), these are the results that I get from your commands. redact@redact:~$ ls /etc/X11 app-defaults default-display-manager fonts rgb.txt xinit xkb Xreset Xreset.d Xresources Xsession ...

Re: NVidia GeForce GTX 780 driver doesn't work in LM20

None of the automated updates have helped, so I guess I'm ready to offer what service I can if someone here can help me diagnose the problem on my system. I continue to press ESCape at the boot menu to press "E" to edit the main boot option and replace "quiet splash" with "nomodeset" in order to boo...

Re: NVidia GeForce GTX 780 driver doesn't work in LM20

If I install any NVidia drivers, then my system fails to boot. I end up either with a useless unblinking underscore character in the top left corner of my screen, or with pretty dark blue pixels across my screen. I can boot to login screen ONLY if I use the nomodeset option on the main menu OR I go ...

NVidia GeForce GTX 780 driver doesn't work in LM20

I've tried so many things that I don't even know the whole list of attempted fixes any more. I used the 'nomodeset' option on the GRUB menu , so at least I can boot into a desktop using the Nouveau driver without having to detour into the Grub advanced recovery menu first. So... do I just wait patie...
