• nvidia driver failure after update


    I have just installed updates after a month of productive uptime, and upon reboot, I am greeted with this LightDM failure.

    I tried installing and switching to gdm, but that just leaves me with blanking cursor on boot. I also tried re-installing gnome, with no luck.

    I’m rocking the latest nvidia drivers as well.

    Does anyone have a similar issue? I really need this machine for work, any ideas/suggestions are welcome.

    It might be a driver issue.

    I am running LInux 4.9.20-1-LTS and nvidia-lts 378.13-4
    Any suggestions?

    EDIT: Driver issue confirmed. After removing the graphics card, and booting via integrated intel graphics, I am able to go straight into Gnome desktop without issues.

  • dmesg
    

    output would be helpfull for me to check

  • @joekamprad

    dmesg | grep nvidia | pastebinit
    https://pastebin.com/WZbVQdeq

  • https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/53516

    output looks same like yours…

    Are you shure running LTS Kernel ?

    uname -a
    
  • @joekamprad

    Yes, I am.

    ~ % uname -rms
    Linux 4.9.20-1-lts x86_64
    

    It upgraded me from 4.4 LTS to 4.9 LTS, and the nvidia drivers got updated to:

    ~ % pacman -Q nvidia-lts
    nvidia-lts 378.13-4
    
  • wait i check to start with LTS combi and will be back in a minute

  • Bild Text
    Same here with LTS Kernel and LTS nvidia Driver…

    Linux empowered64 4.9.20-1-lts #1 SMP Fri Mar 31 15:23:31 CEST 2017 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1 extra/nvidia-lts 378.13-4 [installed]
    

    But i use gdm at the moment and as you can see X starts just fine.
    Do you try reinstalling the nvidia driver ?
    Take a look to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d
    And do you have maybe a /etc/X11/xorg.conf file?
    erase/move it!
    And doing updates ones a week saves from bad issues a lot!!!

  • @joekamprad
    I tried gdm, no luck.

    cat: /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/xorg.conf: No such file or directory
    

    Do you have it working now on LInux 4.9.20-1-LTS and nvidia-lts 378.13-4?

  • yes as i say before i have the same error messages but gnome starts just fine without issue…

  • Hmmm…

  • DKMS ?
    Do you try to use Nvidia DKMS before? or needing DKMS for somethiung else?

  • @joekamprad
    need dkms for virtualbox

  • @furion said in nvidia driver failure after update:

    @joekamprad
    need dkms for virtualbox

    true …
    may you reinstall also linux-lts linux-lts-headers to solve your issue
    Or do a :

    # sudo mkinitcpio -p linux
    
  • @joekamprad

    After reinstalling linux-lts and linux-headers-lts I still get the same output:

    ~ % sudo pacman -S nvidia-lts

  • The DKMS failure hast to do with your virtualbox:
    virtualbox-guest-dkms and/or virtualbox-host-dkms packages.

    dkms status
    dkms autoinstall
    
  • @joekamprad I’ve just noticed that linux-lts and nvidia-lts were updated today.
    The update has fixed the issue, everything works perfectly now.

    Thank you
