Thread: System boots only in recovery mode

    Question System boots only in recovery mode

    I've install the latest Nvidia drivers (Hard Way) 384.90 and system boots only in recovery mode. Everything seems to be working, but it's strange. When I try to boot in regular way, the system freeze after few seconds. The last output on terminal is:

    SP5100_tco: I/O adress 0x0cd6 already in use

    Do you know, what might be wrong?

    The Journalctl contains entries only from the last boot (recovery mode), which is OK. I don't know, how to get the log from the previous regular boot, which stuck.

    I've notice just one suspisious part of the Xorg log:

    What's a difference between the regular and recovery boot. The recovery works fine, the KDE starts, nvidia driver works.

    It has to do something with the Plymouth (boot splash). When I disable it in the Grub config, it boots OK.

    Default Re: System boots only in recovery mode

    I have run into the same condition where installation of the NVIDIA 384.98-29.1 (recommended way) does not work from the default boot selection in GRUB2. I also end up with a blank screen. However, if I use the Advanced Recovery boot option (kernel 4.4.92-31-default) it boots fine. This was sending me around in circles for a few days...

    I did just note that nvidia-gfxG04-kmp-default (which was also installed the recommended way) is tagged as 384.98_k4.4.76_1-29.1.

    Does anyone know if this kernel version mismatch might be causing the issue?

    Right now I have a system that is usable, and I need to get some productivity going after the last few days, so not really looking at chasing that rabbit hole right now, but I thought that I'd throw that out there for others to consider...
