Re: Issue with Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon with Nvidia driver 384

Re: Issue with Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon with Nvidia driver 384

sudo apt-get upgrade A guaranteed way to b0rk your system. But of course, you've learned that now. What gets me is that the devs don't live in userland so they don't see the problem, so they don't put in a warning or ask if you're absolutely certain that you want to execute that command. It is hard...

Re: Issue with Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon with Nvidia driver 384

Good job, I couldn't understand why it wasn't working for you, my gtx 970 works great. I have a question about your coolbits, why coolbits= 31 ?? I think it's an illegal number and is probably why you don't see it listed in your xorg.conf file. Here's some notes I have on them: When “2” (Bit 1) is ...

Re: Issue with Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon with Nvidia driver 384

I finally figured out my problem after spending days reinstall kernels, nvidia drivers. The issue is if there is anything in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf then the Nvidia driver won't load. I found this by trying to add the coolbits by doing the following command: sudo nvidia-xconfig -a --cool-bits=31 whic...

Re: Issue with Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon with Nvidia driver 384

I fixed my issue but then broke it again. I know what I did to break it but did not write down the steps on how to fix the issue. I think this is what I did. The issue is that the Nvidia drivers were not loading at boot time. 1) I changed grub to give me the boot menu 2) I installed kernel 4.4 3) bo...

Re: Issue with Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon with Nvidia driver 384

The installation guide says to try the same thing post-install, did you at least give it a go? No luck. Going to try and load an older kernel and see if that solves the problem. Linux Mint was working on this machine just fine until and update came out. I'm just not sure what update caused the issue.

Have you tried using nomodeset? From linuxmint-installation-guide.
greerd,
Thanks, but I was able to get the USB stick to boot. The issue now is to get the Nvidia drivers to load.

Re: Issue with Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon with Nvidia driver 384

deepakdeshp,
I have tried all that, still does not work. Either the Kernel or an update to the Window Manager has caused an issue. I have tried going back to an old video driver and that does not work as well. At this point, I'm stuck.
