I have a system with 4 gtx 1080 cards, (with no integrated graphic chip) I tried to install ubuntu 14.04 LTS server on my system, but after installation, booting got stuck at "nouveau failed to create 0x00 ..., -22" Is it a problem with nouveau that it cannot recognize such a newly released card? Anybody have a solution? or suggestion for other OS (like CentOS)?
The 'new' NVIDIA GTX 1000 graphics adapters have compatibilty issues with the nouveau drivers.
Add the parameter
nouveau.modeset=0 at the end of the linux line before booting the system.
Highlight the Ubuntu entry and press the E key to add the parameter, then press F10 to boot. To make this solution permanent, add the parameter to GRUB configuration in /etc/default/grub.
Open a terminal and execute the following command :
sudo nano /etc/default/grub
nouveau.modeset=0 to this line : GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
that it reads : GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nouveau.modeset=0"
Press Ctrl + X and confirm the change you've made by pressing Y.
Then execute :
sudo update-grub to update the GRUB configuration.
