[Nvidia/Prime] XOrg: no screen with usable config

Postby yagoham » 2020-03-13 08:03

Hello,

I am on Debian Sid 5.4 with an Nvidia Optimus/Prime-capable GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Mobile (and an integrated Intel graphic chipset) with Nvidia drivers 440.64 configured with Prime to use a second monitor. More precisely, I followed a while ago the simple instructions of this post https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/1022670/linux/official-driver-384-59-with-geforce-1050m-doesn-t-work-on-opensuse-tumbleweed-kde/post/5203910/#5203910 and everything has been working fine for a time.

However after a recent reboot Gnome freezes after login (black screen, cannot do anything even like switching to a term and rebooting blindly), and logs show that X11 complains that "Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.", although I did not change anything about my configuration. Most solutions on the internet advise to reconfigure xorg but I need my custom configuration to be able to use a second monitor with my card: the default config just fallback on the Intel chipset, which is not what I want. Here is my xorg.conf:

Code: Select all
Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier "layout"
    Screen 0 "nvidia"
    Inactive "intel"
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier "nvidia"
    Driver "nvidia"
    BusID "PCI:01:00:0"
    Option "AllowEmptyInitialConfiguration"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier "nvidia"
    Device "nvidia"
    # Uncomment this line if your computer has no display devices connected to
    # the NVIDIA GPU.  Leave it commented if you have display devices
    # connected to the NVIDIA GPU that you would like to use.
    #Option "UseDisplayDevice" "none"
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier "intel"
    Driver "modesetting"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier "intel"
    Device "intel"
EndSection


I'm not knowledgable about X11, but I expected that if you did not put any configuration about your monitor in the corresponding section then the card would be able to autodetect available modes. Here are the X11 logs:

Re: [Nvidia/Prime] XOrg: no screen with usable config

For the record, it was fixed by the last nvidia/xorg update.
