Thread: Shiny new NVIDIA repo, won't boot after restart.

  1. #1

    Default Shiny new NVIDIA repo, won't boot after restart.

    On a fresh TW install, I'm having problems with the proprietary nvidia driver using the repo method listed on opensuse.org/SDB:NVIDIA_drivers. the output from zypper during/post install is as follows:
    https://pastebin.com/PzTaUcEy

    When attempting to restart, the system passes GRUB, but then hangs, never even getting to disk decryption. I am unsure as how to proceed.

    I don't know what your problem might be, but maybe the following message can shed some light on it.
    https://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-.../msg00343.html
    Tumbleweed Gnome on i7 4720HQ + Geforce GTX960M

    Sadly, not applicable, as I was working from a fresh install that only had noveau drivers. But thank you for the suggestion.

    What do you mean by "hangs"? What do you see? Is the screen black? Does the monitor switch off? Does it flash? Is there any text output visible on screen?

    Have you tried Ctrl+Alt+F7? Maybe the VT switch just did not happen and it waits for pw entry on another screen.

    Default AW: Shiny new NVIDIA repo, won't boot after restart.

    And which Nvidia Repo do you mean?
    Post the URL from that Repo.

    The repo is in the ML post linked: https://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/tumbleweed

    I tried that just for the fun of it and it indeed produces a black screen with a blinking cursor. Boot stalls completly, there is no HD activity, not even the one generated by running from initramfs up to lvm pw entry.

    As it works in rescue mode and then reaches graphical desktop with nvidia enabled, I guess it has to do with plymouth or graphical boot in general. But I have no use for nvidia, so I did not test further.

    I recommend in Tumbleweed to use the File from the Nvidia Homepage, here on Leap 42.2 with Kernel 4.12 it works.
    Code:
    uname -a &&nvidia-settings -v
    Linux linux64 4.12.5-2.g4d38c27-default #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Aug 9 07:50:45 UTC 2017 (4d38c27) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    
    nvidia-settings:  version 384.59  (buildmeister@swio-display-x64-rhel04-01)  Thu Jul 20 01:02:19 PDT

      The NVIDIA X Server Settings tool.
    
      This program is used to configure the NVIDIA Linux graphics driver.
      For more detail, please see the nvidia-settings(1) man page.
    Otherwise contact the Maintainer of the Repo.

    The Bumblebee repo version (latest) works fine as well, on top of that it has DKMS so you won't get black screened on upgrades.

    When this was announced on the factory mailing list by Stefan Dirsch, he asked for user feedback:

    Thanks all for the responses. I'll look into it further, maybe using another machine as a test platform.
