I get a black screen after booting with Ubuntu 17.10 and Nvidia. Seems a quite common problem already mentioned in many posts.
• In /etc/gdm3/custom.conf: uncommented "WaylandEnable=false"
• In /etc/default/grub:` add at the line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT the parameter "nomodeset" or “nvidia-drm.modeset=1” (in both case I kept “quiet splash security=selinux selinux=1”)
• reinstalling the drivers after and as follow
sudo apt purge 'nvidia-*' sudo apt install linux-headers-$(uname -r) sudo apt install nvidia-384 ** Also tried with nvidia-387
Checked if an old version of compiler (update-alternatives –config gcc) but gcc v7.2.0 is the only one I have
• The BIOS is set to use only PCI-E card video
I can load Ubuntu successfully when I use the generic (recovery mode) only, but not the normal one.
My Nvidia card is GTX1080Ti.
This issue started after upgrading from 16.10 to 17.10.
The booting time is increasingly slower, lagging at loading initial ramdisk (may be unrelated)
