    More Nvidia Issues With F28

    Hi all,

    OS: Fedora 28
    GPU: GTX 1050 Mobile
    CPU: i7 7700HQ

    I return with Nvidia issues. I'm actually really worried about this now. I had everything working except for, it now seems, the actual Nvidia GPU. When trying to use optirun/primus, or even open nvidia-settings, I was told that it couldn't access the card, or load the driver. I also realized I couldn't get multiple monitors working (the reason I went down this path). I ended up using Nvidia's driver installation tutorial (https://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree...410.93/README/).

    I thought this would work, and those errors are now gone, but so is a graphical display. When I try to startx, Xorg tells me a number of things (it seems Xorg likes to overwrite Xorg.0.log, so I only have the most recent). I ran nvidia-xconfig, so it made a very small change to the xorg.conf file. I also don't have the xorg.conf as, even though the installation promises to make a backup, there is none.

    This is what Xorg.0.log has told me after invoking Xorg -configure:

    I came across an Arch forums post about something similar, in which someone suggested removing the xorg.conf file from /etc/X11. I did that, and I got a graphical login! However, this puts me back into software rendering mode with Cinnamon, which in turns gets me back to needing to work with Bumblebee, which is where I started.

    I'm really, really lost. A friend suggested switching to Ubuntu, and I just might. But I'd rather try and fix this, but if it can't be done in a timely manner, then I have to switch. The semester just started, and I can't afford to get screwed on this.

    Re: More Nvidia Issues With F28

    Hey there,

    I always use/used NVIDIA, as back in the old days, AMD was the one not supporting Linux in the least.

    Anyway, to your issues:
    1.
    [ 32.853] (EE) No devices detected.
    [ 32.853] (EE)
    Fatal server error:
    [ 32.853] (EE) no screens found(EE)
    That is typical when the driver does not load, nothing to worry about.

    2. I would remove /etc/X11/xorg.conf (just rename it as xorg.conf.DISABLED)
    Software rendering will only happen, if there is a problem somewhere, or missing libraries.

    Apparently the driver is exiting on a color issue, very odd. Looks like a mess of drivers and libs.

    Question: what display manager are you using ?
    I would recommend lxdm.
    Code:
    dnf install lxdm
    cd /etc/systemd/system
    rm -f display-manager.service
    ln -s /usr/lib/systemd/system/lxdm.service display-manager.service
    Then go ahead and follow these instructions:
    *enable rpmfusion in your system first by doing:
    dnf install https://download1.rpmfusion.org/free...-28.noarch.rpm
    and
    dnf install https://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonf...-28.noarch.rpm

    and click here, follow the instructions to the letter, you maybe also suffering from a sticky nouveau driver that won't go away.
    https://rpmfusion.org/Howto/NVIDIA

    to remove nouveau, I had to edit /etc/default/grub
    and add: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau modprobe.blacklist=nouveau nvidia-drm.modeset=1 rhgb quiet"
    then execute grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg (you may have this in a /boot/efi/... location though)

    https://rpmfusion.org/Howto/NVIDIA)
    So, I'm a little bit confused - I wanna be really careful. I'm looking, per the instructions, to see if my card is supported. Fedora for me is x86_64.

    1: I went here first: http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree8...rtedchips.html and did not see the GTX 1050 listed.

    2: Then I went here: https://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html

    3: Then here: https://www.nvidia.com/Download/driv...x/108581/en-us

    4: I did not see the GTX 1050 listed above, and noted it was a 2 year old driver set. I followed the instructions at the top, and went here: https://www.nvidia.com/Download/driv...x/141847/en-us

    The 415.27 driver set is the most recent release not listed as beta for a 64-bit architecture. It DOES list the GTX 1050 as supported.

    Logically, I assume that the link is an outdated copy-paste of a then-relevant 32-bit link. As my card is supported under the most-recent non-beta driver release, I should just need to do:
    Code:
    dnf install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia akmod-nvidia
    dnf install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-cuda #optional for cuda/nvdec/nvenc support
    dnf update -y
    The link you listed discusses extra steps for Optimus systems, and the second regex to grep for
    Code:
    grep -e "3D"
    as being the clearest indicator of Optimus. To my understanding, Optimus was meant to handle switching between iGPU and dGPU in laptops. Thus, all laptops with a dGPU are Optimus devices. However, my card shows up with
    Code:
    grep -e "VGA"
    . I've read a couple guides that always say something different. Most say that if you get more than one line when grepping for "VGA" that you're "probably" Optimus. Is there a decisive way to determine this? I'm not sure if this matters, as the HOWTO says that Optimus is supported by default from F25 on.

    Also, my GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX has "<blacklisting nouveau, setting nvidia-drm-modeset, UUID for swap partition> nomodeset rghb quiet" on it. I checked here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/2071...s-nomodeset-do and it sounds like this isn't/shouldn't be an issue. Just wanna confirm.

    An aside: This is something I noticed probably a month ago while fiddling around and checking out directories, but for me under F28, in /etc there are two grub symlinks: grub2.cfg and grub2-efi.cfg. The former links to the grub configuration you specified (and is broken), the other links mine which is under efi/EFI/fedora. I've not decided whether or not it's safe to delete the broken symlink, I should think it is as I clearly did a UEFI install for F28.

    Thank you for your help Bob!

    Re: More Nvidia Issues With F28

    So, I went through with it, and it's...interesting. I'm still in software rendering mode for Cinnamon, and EVERYTHING is super tiny. The screen is 3840x2160. Everything is hard to work with. I have no idea how to configure this. I've also lost brightness control.

    Running nvidia-settings on it's own gets me:
    Code:
    ERROR: Unable to load info from any available system
    Running it via optirun -b none nvidia-settings -c :8 (like as shown in https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US...bee/index.html) gives:
    Code:
    [ERROR] Cannot access secondary GPU - error: [XORG] (EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to assign any connected display devices to X screen 0.
    [ERROR] Aborting because fallback start is disabled
    I do still have bumblebee installed. Is it something to get rid of?

    Code:
    lsmod | grep nvidia 
    nvidia_modeset          1044480     0
    nvidia_uvm              962560      0
    nvidia                  17334272    2 nvidia_uvm,nvidia_modeset
    ipmi_msghandler         69632       2 ipmi_devintf,nvidia
    Which I think means all the nvidia kernel modules are loaded.

    The new Xorg.0.log is 17k characters, too long to post here, so here's a link: https://pastebin.com/RSapf1Cj

    EDIT @ 20:23
    This time (after a reboot) I get this:
    Code:
    ERROR: NVIDIA driver is not loaded
    
    ERROR: Unable to load info from any available system
    And lsmod | grep nvidia doesn't return anything. And all the Nvidia devices are missing from /dev

    hardcore hmmmms.
    well, one thing that throws me off is the bumblebee, I am absolutely not familiar with that at all.
    another thing that I think maybe happening is the "too many configs syndrome".

    at this point, I would suggest a bumblebee user step into the conversation here.

    Re: More Nvidia Issues With F28

    I'm not familiar with bumblebee and what I understand is, it's for systems with 2 separate video cards. Just grasping at straws here, is there maybe a bios setting that picks which card is the primary display? The other item I've run into is leftovers from failed attempts to install the driver. I have had to remove everything nvidia and re-install the driver. I've had great success with the rpm fusion drivers since fedora 8 or so. If you have the repos enabled try using the akmod-nvidia or nvidia-driver without bumblebee and see if it even works. Wish I could be of more help than that. Good luck.
    (It's a hobby, but I like it)

    Re: More Nvidia Issues With F28

    edit - ok the lsmod shows a kernel module...
    I wonder if that's teh right kernel module? Are there not multiple versions of nvidia propriatory?
    Also wonder if the open source one is trying to load too?

    lspci -v and look for the VGA device..

    dmesg|grep drm

    will maybe give a clue if it's loaded. or do the dmesg|less and search for drm to see if there's an error.
    Maybe you have the wrong kernel module installed or it's not installed?
