since you said trying nvidia-driver-390 I can suggest you try some solutions. The first one is trying to get the drivers from Software & Updates, under the "aditional drivers" tab. In my case I already installed Ubuntu with the proprietary drivers, but you could try selecting the first option: proprietary, tested. If it doesn't work you could ...

I tried this to no luck.. Still getting that /dev/sda5 xxxxx/xxxx files page. Is there like a stable driver for Nvidia. I've tried this way with 470 for like 4-5 times. Although when I (Ctrl+Alt+F2) into the pre-boot terminal, nvidia-smi works but laptop is stuck on /dev/sda5 clean. Any help would be nice.

I ran into a similar issue, and after a reboot the issue went away. One thing I would recommend is not to use the automatic login on Ubuntu 20.04 because that is what caused me to get into an infinite login loop since the machine thinks I am already logged in even though I am not.

For the record, in case it's useful to somebody: I was not able to get mplayer to play vdpau files, nor to use ffmpeg to convert these files to another format. But I was able to use vlc on the command line to convert the file to a playable format (apt install vlc-bin): vlc --sout "#transcode{codec=mp4}:std{access=file,dst=output.mp4}" "input....

I have encountered exactly the same problem after updating my Nvidia driver (and CUDA toolkit). Although the answer comes late, I'm recording it here so it might help someone. Basically, it's the same problem concerning Nvidia drivers as in previous similar questions. The only difference is that, as the screen keeps blinking/flickring, it's impossible to ...

It looks that the Kernel 1.13 isn't supported by the nvidia kernel now

I found a solution. Enabling "Force Full Composition Pipeline" eliminates screen tearing on the second screen.

So, after digging a bit deeper it was as presumed a video driver issue. The latest nvidia driver installation (nvidia-driver-470) was corrupted and made the system hang during boot time. I still can't figure out how the nomodeset was making the video output freeze but anyway.. What I did was booting in "safe mode" adding init=/bin/sh and changing ...

To fix it you need to add a param to the kernel initialization, you can do that by pressing E at the grub screen or following these steps: sudo (editor command) /etc/default/grub Comment out this line: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" Add this line instead: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash i915.enable_psr=0" Save and ...

I have the same laptop and I experienced a similar problem after I upgraded the kernel. To solve it, I downgraded the kernel to 5.11.0-31-generic (if you don't have it, install it with apt install linux-headers-5.11.0-31-generic (I'm not sure if you need to install some other things as well, like linux-image-5.11.0-31-generic, or if it will happen ...

You need to download the drivers first. Try first running this sudo apt install libnvidia-tesla-cuda1 libnvidia-tesla-cuda1-i386 then running your install command when Apt is finished with this one. This is the description from apt search : NVIDIA CUDA Driver Library (Tesla version) EDIT After doing more research on the question, I found the official ...

Have you tried open a terminal and type the command sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall? I had Ubuntu 18.04 some time ago with a GTX 1050Ti working after I used this command. Don't forget to purge all the nvidia drivers you've installed before doing that.

Make sure you get the resolution of your 4K screen right , the texts and fonts will look small if the resolution is not set properly. adjust the screen resolution first and then see what fractional scaling is doing to both of the monitors

I ended up adding this line in /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf: display-setup-script=xrandr --output eDP-1-1 --auto --output DP-1-1 --right-of eDP-1-1 --auto Where eDP-1-1 is my laptop's display and DP-1-1 is second monitor. I made it hard-coded, but it can be automated. The only bad outcome is after logging in there is a second when both monitors show white ...

TLDR: In '/etc/X11/Xwrapper.config' add: allowed_users = anybody needs_root_rights = yes and change permissions: chmod 2644 /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config I got this working in a multi GPU config with 470.63.01 drivers.

Changing kernels from 5.11 HWE to GA 5.4 had done the trick, this isn't ideal as there are still some problems with nvidia, but this is the closest I got and ubuntu is usable like this

For discrete mode. Now, it works for me (ubuntu 20.04.3) with the kernel (v5.11.0.34.36) parameter: nvidia.NVreg_RegistryDwords=EnableBrightnessControl=1 And nvidia drivers 460.91.03. No need to do anything else (of course you need to do a sudo update-grub). The parameter is mentioned in arch wiki https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/NVIDIA#...

Take a look at https://community.kde.org/Plasma/Wayland/Nvidia and use a beta nvidia driver (see https://phoenixnap.com/kb/install-nvidia-drivers-ubuntu). I was able to reach the desktop.

Actually, nvidia driver support on especially Ubuntu is quite good. The Geforce 820M however is quite a strange GPU. There exists multiple devices under the name of 820M. One of them is using a GF117 chip which is based on the Fermi architecture. There however also seems to be a variant that is based on the Kepler architecture using a GK107 chip which is ...

Apparently I just fixed it. I looked into why 'nomodeset' kinda worked and showed me a GUI. As far as I understand 'nomodeset' prevents video drivers from being loaded. I then tried to install a different video driver through the 'Additional drivers' application. I just used the open-source one. After a reboot (and removal of 'nomodeset') I was prompted with ...

Yes, the older nvidia drivers in 20.04 crash the computer. In 20.10 upwards and the newest drivers this problem doesn't happen (prob. why I had to upgrade.) I don't know what Ubuntu version you are using... But the NVidia Driver 700 should work (well for Ubuntu 21.04 and NVIDIA GeForce 1660 super) I didn't get render problems, just poor performance with the ...

Both these issues where not present in windows. I checked multiple ...

I installed nvidia-driver-390 for my geforce 920M by typing sudo apt install nvidia-driver-390 in the terminal and now I don't have any issue. EDIT: Few softwares gave an error that nvidia-driver-390 was too old and I needed a newer version to make them work properly, so I started testing some other drivers for my GPU and found that nvidia-driver-418-server ...

Took some time to realize how to make keyboard backlight work on Ubuntu 20 on my Lenovo Legion Slim 7. Apparently, the support is built-in by Lenovo into the BIOS and all keyboard shortcuts are the same as Windows. Fn+Space switch between modes. The reason the lights turn off when using Linux is somehow Linux boot sets the brightness to 0. You can either go ...

According to the Nvidia website, you are using the wrong driver version for your particular card. Run the following commands to ensure proper installation and configuration of the correct proprietary driver: sudo apt update sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall

None of these methods worked for me. I am using a Lenovo laptop with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650.

It seems that repository is somewhat older. I was able to reproduce the issue you had with compiling it and I looked into patching/updating it to work, but instead I just found a newer repository that appears to be maintained: git clone 'https://github.com/morrownr/88x2bu' cd 88x2bu make -j $(nproc) The -j $(nproc) part simply speeds up the compilation by ...

If I understand things correctly, then this package came from OEM packagers, like this PPA. The oem-fix-gfx-nvidia-ondemandmode_1.5 package itself is almost empty, as it has only 2 objects: /usr/share/doc/oem-fix-gfx-nvidia-ondemandmode/changelog.gz /usr/share/doc/oem-fix-gfx-nvidia-ondemandmode/copyright But the most interesting part of package is its post-...

Option 1: Contact your OEM support. They provided the software. Since Ubuntu did not provide the package, the Ubuntu repositories do NOT have a copy of it. Option 2: Use the command dpkg -L oem-fix-gfx-nvidia-ondemandmode to show you a list of all the files included in that package. You can manually back up and restore those files, though not in the form of ...

Disclaimer: Still not sure of the details. The lib just contains the modules, along with their installation files. Therefore, I guess I will answer both questions. A.

Since you have purged all of your nvidia* packages, it's likely that you are now using the nouveau driver, which you can check by running lsmod | grep -Ei nvidia\|nouveau. I had reliability issues with the 460 and 465 versions of the nvidia driver, which I fixed by downgrading to version 450. You can see a full list of available drivers with apt list nvidia-...

I have a very similar system as you. Looks like Ryzen processor have this issue with Ubuntu 20.04.
