Re: Apparent Mint 20 nvidia - libseccomp conflict?

I am now thinking of labeling this topic "abandoned" for several reasons (even if I am not entirely sure how it is supposed to be interpreted, but the term seems to be in use). - I feel I have to move on, for my own peace of mind. - The topic seems to have served its purpose of drawing att...

Re: Apparent Mint 20 nvidia - libseccomp conflict?

Thanks for that info. I was previously unaware of how to backtrack on a system update, and that sounds like a very useful method. But now this issue has become absolutely ludicrous for me. A couple of posts ago I said that a new clean installation works fine. Well, that was yesterday. Today, I thoug...

Re: Apparent Mint 20 nvidia - libseccomp conflict?

Thank you very much for your insights and suggestions. If the Nvidia-440 driver was installed first, (and I had to use apt command-line because Driver Manager failed with the same message you saw), and then installed the libseccomp update (actually the package installed is libseccomp2), then there w...

Re: Apparent Mint 20 nvidia - libseccomp conflict?

Doing a couple of new clean test installations on a surplus SSD indicated that my nvidia driver issue might be fixed on new installations. After first installing the full set of current system updates on a test installation and then using the Driver Manager to install the 440 driver, I ended up with...

Re: Apparent Mint 20 nvidia - libseccomp conflict?

@SMG Thank you for your kind efforts in this matter. For now, the card, the driver and the kernel do all seem to be working fine together, just as long as I don't update libseccomp. One obvious difference between my system and many laptops is that Mint is installed not on sda but on sdf, but my prev...

Re: Apparent Mint 20 nvidia - libseccomp conflict?

Just in case it might look like my issue is an isolated one, I would like to draw attention to this post elsewhere on this forum: https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=326187 , dated 25 July and titled "libseccomp update breaks nvidia driver", and now well on its way to van...

Re: Apparent Mint 20 nvidia - libseccomp conflict?

Maybe I could add some speculation to the above. Somebody who is more knowledgeable might be able to say whether or not this speculation is nonsensical. Based on googling libseccomp, it is a system security component, a kind of gateway that filters what system calls other applications are allowed to...

[Abandoned] Apparent Mint 20 nvidia - libseccomp conflict?

Having installed Mint 20 on an old 2500K + GTX 680 desktop to try it out, all was fine, for a while. With the libseccomp 2.4.3-1ubuntu3.20.04.3 update, however, things changed, and regardless of whether I try to use the 390, 435, or 440 (recommended) nvidia driver, I lose hardware acceleration and t...
