• \[Solved\] Nvidia update breaks system


    Applied latest system update to Nvidia (I think it said version 343.22).

    After restarting, the system no longer boots properly, it does not boot to the login manager, cannot start lightdm from terminal. (Or at least nothing is displayed when I start lightdm.)

    I’m not sure how to downgrade the most recent update from the terminal. Can anyone help?
    Thanks

  • Hi,

    You can use "downgrade’ from the AUR or just check your pkg cache to see which versions you have and then use pacman -U to install one of them:[command:3e0u7iwo]ls -R /var/cache/pacman | grep nvidia[/command:3e0u7iwo]

    Cheers!

    same problem here… do you have a G8x, G9x or a GT2xx GPU? maybe this is the problem:

    nvidia droped support for does gpus in the 343xx driver (current driver)
    it seems to be an early nvidia Christmas gift from our friends at nvidia. I have a gameforce 9600GT and it seems that this affects me. look at nvidea site and see if the indicated driver for your card is 340 or 343.
    mine is, so installed 340 and it’s working fine:

    sudo pacman -S linux-headers nvidia-340xx nvidia-340xx-utils nvidia-340xx-libgl
    

    if you are unable to install due to dependencies do:

    sudo pacman -Rdd nvidia nvidia-utils nvidia-libgl
    

    and then

    sudo pacman -S linux-headers nvidia-340xx nvidia-340xx-utils nvidia-340xx-libgl

  • I’ve had to re-run these comands again today.

    The problem:
    The system booted up normally right up to the point " Reached target Graphical Interface", and it hangs there; unable to start Gnome.

    These are the errors reported in Xorg.0.log

    [ 12.575] (EE) systemd-logind: failed to get session: PID 374 does not belong to any known session
    [ 13.815] (EE) Failed to load module “nouveau” (module does not exist, 0)
    [ 13.816] (EE) Failed to load module “modesetting” (module does not exist, 0)
    [ 13.816] (EE) Failed to load module “modesetting” (module does not exist, 0)

  • After following the instructions in [(Using Arch User Repository) Setting up drivers for Kernel updates via Terminal[/url:3bqeyj63], the system is more stable but still flickers occasionally. Also, while trying to perform my usual system-update, I now get this error message :

    [b:3bqeyj63]user[/color:3bqeyj63]@[color]desktop[/color:3bqeyj63] ~ %yaourt -Su[/b:3bqeyj63]
    [color]error[/color:3bqeyj63][b:3bqeyj63]: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)

    :: nvidia-340xx-dkms: requires nvidia-340xx-utils=340.46[/b:3bqeyj63]
    I need help trying to resolve this issue as the error is holding all the other system updates back.[/color][/color][/color]]0
