community I have since a clean ubuntu 14.04.2 install and two weeks searching the following Problem.
- OS: Ubuntu 14.04.02
- 3.16.0-30-generic (does not boot)
- 3.16.0-31-generic (boots but with black screen, the log screen sounds as if the log screen is there)
- 3.16.0-33-generic (same as 3.16.0-31)
- Graphic Card: Nvidia GTX 860M
- Graphic driver: nvidia-346.47
I installed the driver using the
ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa. Ubuntu booted normally with the GUI.
xorg-edgers repository the "additional drivers" program does not recognized, that the laptop has a GTX 860M card installed. After the installation the "NVIDIA-Settings" program showed the correct graphic card, but the "additional drivers" program showed only that an Unknown NVIDIA device is present and different NVIDIA drivers 340, 346, 349 and
nouveau to choose from.
Then I tried to install CUDA 7.0 using the .deb package. The installation was not possible, because
apt-get gave me depencies problems as described here:
sudo apt-get install libglew-dev libcheese7 libcheese-gtk23 libclutter-gst-2.0-0 libcogl15 libclutter-gtk-1.0-0 libclutter-1.0-0 to resolve the depencie problems but since then when I boot I get a black screen as described in the System Specs List. I can access the virtual consoles (tty1- tty6) and the outputs of
prime-select query is NVIDIA,
nvidia-detector is none.
I do not understand, why the "additional drivers" program does not recognized the graphic card I have Even though I followed the instruction described here:
And furthermore why I get the unmet dependencies problems. Those problems don't let me install
freeglut3-dev. How can I manage to boot normally?
Hi, I performed a fresh install of Ubuntu 14.04.1. The “Additional Drivers” section didn’t recognized my nvidia (GTX 860M) graphics card at all. I added the xorg-edgers and installed the nvidia-356.59 driver and got the black screen problem. I apply the solution proposed here and worked. Then I proceeded to apply all the following Ubuntu updates and updated until 14.04.2. I was happy that everything was running well.
Then I proceeded to install CUDA 7.0 and now I have the following problem: Sometimes my laptop hangs on boot: the last line of the booting process before hanging reads: ‘Starting ACPI daemon [OK]’
After that I only can power off the laptop pressing the power button.
nomodeset boot parameter allows me to boot with the nvidia driver selected, without freeze, but I get the login screen and after logging in I only see my desktop background and the mouse pointer. Usint
Alt + F2 or
Ctrl + Alt + T does nothing (only the tty1-6 work). From there switching to intel drivers using
sudo prime-select intel fails.
When the laptop does not hangs I get again a black screen. I can use the others ttys and using
prime-select query outputs
nvidia. If I wait until the “screen saver” is activated then the X Server works.
Does anyone else have the boot problem as described here?
