• Nvidia drivers problem after update


    Hi All,
    After updating system (Cinnamon DE - nvidia geforce GT 710 - GDM display manager) at reboot I have problems with the nvidia drivers (black screen) and I had to reinstall via tty the nouveau drivers. I tried to reinstall nvidia drivers with:

     sudo nvidia-installer -f
    

    but did not solve the problem.
    Any idea to fix the problem?
    Thanks in advance for Your help

    p.s. when I installed the system I had to switch from LightDM to GDM for the same problem

  • Which nvidia driver did you install? Your card needs the nvidia 390xx driver.

    …- nvidia geforce GT 710 -…

    Could you post back here the full output of the commsnd (don’t miss the closing single quote char in it):

    lspci -vnn | grep '\''[030[02]]'
    
  • 1 - With:

    sudo nvidia-installer -f
    

    the drivers installed are 396.24.

    2 - terminal output

    [[email protected] ~]$ lspci -vnn | grep '\''[030[02]]'
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation GK208B [GeForce GT 710] [10de:128b] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

    Unfortunately, I’m not familiar with this card. Can’t be of help with it, I’m afraid. My suspections were wrong.

  • Your card has been moved to the legacy 390xx driver.

    Just install the nvidia-390xx driver manually and your problem will be solved. (hopefully)

    Sorry, how to install manually a specific nvidia drivers version?

  • @sardus-X

    sudo pacman -S nvidia-390xx
    

    Then reboot.

  • @bryanpwo said in Nvidia drivers problem after update:

    @sardus-X

    sudo pacman -S nvidia-390xx
    

    Then reboot.

    unfortunately, it did not work

  • @sardus-X

    My mistake, I forgot to mention one other package:

    sudo pacman -S nvidia-390xx-utils
    

    Then reboot.

    According to the nvidia site the 390xx driver works with your card.

    Unfortunately 2 - the installation of the suggested package is performed together with the drivers, but still does not solve the problem.

  • I’m sorry to hear that, I’m afraid I’m afraid I ran out of ideas here.

  • Clutching a straws here… but this may help…
    In the recent past I found that removing nvidia and nouveau packages and then installing the desired package worked better.

    Search for and remove nvidia packages and noveau for example on my working system I get

    [[email protected] ~]$ pacman -Qe | fgrep nvidia
    lib32-opencl-nvidia-390xx 390.67-1
    nvidia-390xx-dkms 390.67-12
    nvidia-390xx-utils 390.67-2
    nvidia-installer 1.17-2
    opencl-nvidia-390xx 390.67-2
    

    Remove the packages listed for you, with

    sudo pacman -Ru .....
    

    Then reinstall as described by @bryanpwo above.
    I would do this without logging into the GUI, i.e. from a tty, type Ctrl-Alt F2 to get there.
    I opted for dkms as that seemed to be the more sustainable in the long term, but I’m no expert.
