• Bumblebee for nvidia, black screen


    Hi everyone!
    I installed the Antergos KDE on a new laptop!
    The first boot was successful, X was loaded, but the system could not reboot/shutdown, the system crashed, on a black screen.
    I solved this problem:
    I created file /etc/modprobe.d/disable-nouveau.conf:

    blacklist nouveau
    options nouveau modeset=0
    

    Then I installed Bumblebee and nvidia on this guide, in the end I get a black screen!
    My God, I did it twice 😥 the result is the same.
    I did everything exactly according to the instructions
    On an old laptop, Antergos xfce works fine!
    Guys, please help me!

    What Nvidia model does it have?

  • @just
    A new laptop has nvidia GTX 1050Ti
    The old laptop has nvidia GT 555M
    But I already installed bumblebee on a new laptop with xfce, and he worked.

    The guide you’re probably referring to works well for Optimus cards in GTX 410M to GTX 950M range.

    I do not have any of 5 cards from GTX 10-seties, so can’t talk about them. Many people cannot install Bumblebee on GTX 1050, 1050 Ti, 1060, 1070, 1080.

    But I already installed bumblebee on a new laptop with xfce, and he worked.

    Are you saying that you’ve installed Bumblebee in Antergos XFCE on GTX 1050 Ti by following Antergos Wiki article? It would be really a good news.

  • Сan I install on the antergos-prime, this script will help in my situation?

    sudo pacman -S antergos-prime

  • That is weird, yesterday I was able to install bumblebee in an XPS15 (with a GTX1050M) and following the guide worked wonderfully in KDE (actually better than my previous attempt with Ubuntu and Gnome). Honestly, I am quite a noob in this topic, but you seem to be blacklisting nouveau: is there a reason to do this? The guide actually suggests to completely remove it (sudo pacman -Rc xf86-video-nouveau) so it should not be necessary to keep blacklisting it or disabling it in the Grub settings.

  • @just
    I remembered!!! I installed the antergos KDE a month ago, on this laptop, and everything was fine with bumblbee!!
    At that time, I was not satisfied with other system bugs, such as hang of the console and other troubles, but bumblbee worked, I ran Steam.
    And I installed it on the same guide, what could happen in a month?

  • @diegovicente
    I deleted it, following the instructions of the guide. But the files
    /etc/modprobe.d/disable-nouveau.conf:

    blacklist nouveau
    options nouveau modeset=0
    

    and
    /etc/modprobe.d/nouveau.conf:

    options nouveau modeset=1
    

    remained.
    Can they affect the system if i deleted xf86-video-nouveau ??

    There were posts about troubles with the script. Its author is a member of the forum. He would probably reply better.

    For me, Prime is out of any serious consideration. It’s only a strictly personal opinion.

  • @vismuth80

    Not sure, but if the controller is gone it should be fine. I still have the nouveau.conf file, so I don’t think they really matter once the driver is gone.

    The only thing I can think of being in the way is the Grub flags at startup. Can you check how the line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX looks in your file /etc/default/grub? Sometimes you have to play with those flags to get the jackpot combination.

    And, as @just says, I would not try to use prime: I was never able to make it work reliably in my setup. Your mileage may vary, though.

  • @vismuth80 said in Bumblebee for nvidia, black screen:

    But the files

    remained.

    If nouveau driver is uninstalled, they are redundant, and not necessary. But I’d delete them.

    Check that there’s no nouveau in the system with:

    lsmod | grep -i nouveau
    

    The output should be empty. It means that nouveau is removed.

    Again, I speak only about GTX 410M…950M cards.

    It means that nouveau is not uninstalled. Nouveau is a source of infinite troubles on GTX 410M…950M Optimus cards.

    Antergos Wiki: Bumblebee for NVIDIA Optimus.

    Applis to GTX 410M…950M Optimus cards.

  • Re: [Bumblebee for nvidia](black screen)

    lsmod | grep -i nouveau
    ---nothing---
    
    optirun --status
    Bumblebee status: Ready (3.2.1). X inactive. Discrete video card is likely on
    
    optirun glxgears -info

    Why he asks nouveau???

  • @vismuth80 said in Bumblebee for nvidia, black screen:

    Nvidia GPU is remained switched ON. It is wrong. Nvidia GPU must be OFF by default.

    It may be caused by previous experiments with 1050 Ti, may depend on BIOS.

    Glxgears should be never used to test Nvidia. It’s like testing it with Pac-Man.

    I cannot talk about GTX 10nn cards. I never had it, not familiar with them, don’t know how they work.

    I installed Antergos 18.04 on an HP 15 Power Pavilion with a GTX 1050, alongside Intel HD (so Optimus configuration). It works, confirmed! Just followed the amazing guide from the wiki.

  • I did it, and it worked.

    /etc/default/grub

    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="acpi_osi=! acpi_osi=\"Windows 2009\""
    

    and create grub config after with the command

    sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
