• xorg-server update causes issues with nvidia propritary drivers


    After latest update of xorg-server (1.19.6 > 1.20.0-2) lot a users reporting different issues after reboot with all the different nvidia driver packages:
    nvidia (latest 396.24-3) failed on newer nvidia cards (10xx)
    nvidia-lts (396.24-1) >> linux-lts is updated but driver still not
    nvidia-390xx 390.48-4 > not compatible with latest xorg-server marked out of date since 16.5.

    nvidia-installer > Antergos nvidia install helper is not jet updated to detect new 390 legacy cards

    Please post your issue here i will close related posts as i find them and link here, if you find one give me a hint on chat if you like…

    All this will be solved soon and solutions will be there, so l.a. KEEP CALM ;)

  • You can also add the nvidia 340xxx driver to the list that has issues with the xorg-server update.

  • @joekamprad I just saw that Antergos now has the nvidia-390xx version 390.59!

    What is a safe way to remove the 390.59 driver I installed from the nvidia website and install instead the ones from Antergos?

  • @joekamprad
    Congratulations for your amazing work, keeping us up to date joe!

    NVIDIA-Linux-x86-390.59.run --uninstall
    

    inside the directory where you have the run installer … but may name differs

  • @avillavecesn as you say it is updated and this one should work with latest xorg-server package !

  • I studied Nvidia drivers behaviour in various distros and with various versions of linux, nvida, xorg-server packages combinations. Distros involved are native Arch, Antergos, Bluestar, Revenge.

    Full studies are long. I skip everything. These are conclusions only.

    • Antergos is the most robust distro among the four. It works flawlessly with most recent versions of::

      • linux 4.16.9-1
      • nvidia 396.24-3
      • xorg-server 1.20.0-2
    • three other distros fail with these package versions

    • among three packages the most suspected is xorg-server. Nvidia fails with xorg-server 1.20.0-2 in native Arch, Bluestar, Revenge

    • xorg-server 1.19.6+13+gd0d1a694f-2 is the version, with which Nvidia works flawlessly in all distros. Plus, Antergos goes further and continues to work with xorg-server 1.20.0-2

    Even more briefly. For now:

    • xorg-server package is the suspected reason of Nvidia failure

    • Nvidia works flawlessl with xorg-server up to 1.19.6

    • Antergos continues to work well even with xorg-server 1.20.0-2

  • @just said in xorg-server update causes issues with nvidia propritary drivers:

    Nvidia works flawlessl with xorg-server up to 1.19.6

    so downgrading xorg-server from 1.20.0-2 >>1.19.6 is recommended for the users having problem for now?

    I wouldn’t state it. Hardware combinations - Nvidia cards + computer manufacturers + BIOS types and versions + motherboards, etc. - are endless. What works here may not work elsewhere. Moreover, Nvidia continues to work well here in Antergos even with xorg-server 1.20.0-2. At least, for now.

    Nvidia fails with xorg-server 1.20.0-2 in other distros, and downgrade to 1.19.6 solves the issue - but those aren’t Antergos.

    I’d say, it’s possible to try do downgrade to 1.19.6 in Antergos. Hopefully, it might help, but I can’t guarantee it.

  • I have also no issue here with nvidia and system up to date:

    Graphics:  Card-1: NVIDIA GK208 [GeForce GT 710B] driver: nvidia v: 396.24 bus ID: 01:00.0 chip ID: 10de:128b 
               Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.0 driver: nvidia compositor: compton 
               resolution: 1280x1024~60Hz, 1920x1080~60Hz 
               OpenGL: renderer: GeForce GT 710/PCIe/SSE2 v: 4.6.0 NVIDIA 396.24 direct render: Yes 
    
  • I did downgrade xorg-server and it solved the problem for now.

  • @bryanpwo said in xorg-server update causes issues with nvidia propritary drivers:

    For the moment it is the only solution!

  • @bryanpwo Could you specify which packages you downgraded? Do you mean xorg-server, xorg-server-common and xorg-server-wayland? Am I missing anything?

  • Just in case: on my machine (Intel + NVIDIA GeForce 930M + Arch) this bundle needed to be downgraded:

    $ downgrade xf86-video-intel xf86-video-vesa xorg-server xorg-server-common xorg-server-xwayland
    
  • @piotr
    Sorry for the late response, but they were indeed the bundle I downgraded except for xorg-server-xwayland, because I hadn’t installed that.

    No problem at all. Nvidia works, beer cooled down, and I can waste the evening on gaming. ;)

  • @joekamprad just to report I uninstalled the driver from nvidia website and used the updated

    nvidia-installer
    

    (of course, having updated the system to nvidia-390xx version 390.59) - it now works well!!!

    thank you for all these updates!

  • @avillavecesn nice then take a cool 🍺 too!
    Do you use nvidia-installer to upgrade to nvidia-390xx or install the driver on its own?
    Only to make clear if nvidia-installer is getting also new legacy 390 detected.

  • this time I used nvidia-installer - and yes, it detected the new legacy 390 correctly : )

    I will take the cool 🍺 then :) !
