Few days ago kernel 4.15.0-48 got installed by system update on my Ubuntu 18.04.2 system and since there the system will hang during boot, caused by the Nvidea persistence damon, see screenshot. If I select the previous kernel 4.15.0-47 in boot manager options the system runs normally, so the problem is caused by an incompatibility introduced by the new kernel. The system is equipped with Intel® Core™ i7-4790 CPU @ 3.60GHz × 8, 16 GB RAM and GeForce GTX 750 Ti/PCIe/SSE2.

Any ideas on how to fix this?
