Cannot run nVidia GT730 after upgrade.

Postby SilentStorm » 2020-01-16 05:52

Hello all,

I'm running Debian testing (with XFCE desktop) on a desktop PC for a long time. Until recently the system had no problems. After kernel 5.4.0-2 arrived with a bunch of other updates, I'm having strange problems:
  • Cannot start X11 & LightDM with Nouveau drivers
  • Blacklisting Nouveau causes system to freeze mid-boot (system doen't lock-up. Just cannot boot up. CTRL+ALT+DEL reboots gracefully).
  • Installing nVidia drivers from repository causes screen to go to sleep without any way to wake it up.

The frustrating thing is the system was working without any problems for a very very long time.

X11's relevant log snippet is as follows:

Update: I fixed the problem.

Looks like on board graphics started to conflict with the nVidia card after the update. I didn't disable it when I first installed the system and, everything was fine. Now I force-disabled the on board VGA from bios, and everything is fine now. No logs and nothing indicated the complication. Strange.
