Black Screen After Install RPM Nvidia Driver on Fresh Install Fedora 31

Hello,

I have a fresh installation of fedora 31, but after install the rpmfusion Nvidia driver, I only got a black screen and the monitor lost signal.

Monitor: BenQ SW271(4k)
Graphic Card: NVIDIA GPU Quadro RTX 4000

What I did:

  • Install fedora 31.
  • sudo dnf update
  • reboot
  • Enable rpm sudo dnf install https://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm https://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm
  • sudo dnf update
  • reboot
  • sudo dnf install akmod-nvidia
  • modinfo -F version nvidia to check the version of the driver.
  • reboot
  • Black screen and the monitor lost signal after a few seconds :frowning:

Here I have some information I could get by ssh:

lspci

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation TU104GL [Quadro RTX 4000] (rev a1)
  Subsystem: NVIDIA Corporation Device 12a0
  Kernel driver in use: nvidia
  Kernel modules: nouveau, nvidia_drm, nvidia
  • The secure boot is disabled.

Did you blacklist nouveau?

Hello,
I haven’t blacklist nouveau manually. But I can see from the journalctl that it actually is or maybe I’m wrong. Would I have to do it manually? If so, the following steps would be right?

echo 'blacklist nouveau' >> /etc/modprobe.d/disable-nouveau.conf
echo 'nouveau modeset=0' >> /etc/modprobe.d/disable-nouveau.conf

Journalctl fragment:

Apr 08 21:04:47 localhost.localdomain kernel: Command line: BOOT_IMAGE=(hd1,gpt6)/vmlinuz-5.5.15-200.fc31.x86_64 root=/dev/mapper/fedora_localhost--live-root ro resume=UUID=91e4df44-2a1d-41e4-a5a9-c15297de9f74 rd.lvm.lv=fedora_localhost-live/root rd.lvm.lv=fedora_localhost-live/swap rhgb quiet rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau modprobe.blacklist=nouveau nvidia-drm.modeset=1

Also in lspci, I can see that it is using only the nvidia driver:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation TU104GL [Quadro RTX 4000] (rev a1)
  Subsystem: NVIDIA Corporation Device 12a0
  Kernel driver in use: nvidia
  Kernel modules: nouveau, nvidia_drm, nvidia

Thanks!!

Regards.

Can you give the output of “lspci -nn|grep VGA”

You say it is using only the nvidia, but your output shows that it use nouveau too.

I would probably wait that the output of sudo dnf info akmod-nvidia shows 440.82 as a version (that version got out yesterday… april 8)

Meanwhile, can you boot with an older kernel? (someone else here have ‘suggested’ that latest kernel breaks nvidia-driver on F31)

and

sudo lsmod | grep nouveau

Hello,

Here is the ouput of the commands I got:

lspci

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation TU104GL [Quadro RTX 4000] [10de:1eb1] (rev a1)

I got the version 440.64 of akmod-nvidia. I could not find the 440.84 version on internet. (At least on ht__tps://fedora.pkgs.org/)

No output with nouveau.

[will@localhost var]$ sudo lsmod | grep nouveau

In the other hand, I got output using nvidia.

ipmi_msghandler       118784  2 ipmi_devintf,nvidia
i2c_nvidia_gpu         16384  0

Also, I did the test using an older kernel, I only have 2 so I choose 5.3.7-301.fc31.x86_64.

The boot list:

Fedora (5.5.15-200.fc31.x86_64 31) (Thirty one)
Fedora (5.3.7-301.fc31.x86_64 31) (Thirty one)
Fedora (0-rescue-ece02161629642eabe59f44f92b2bdsc) (Thirty one)

When start booting, I could see a gray background with 3 dots and then half of the monitor turns black and appers a few colored line on the top. You can see the sequence of the images here (ht__tps://imgur.com/a/Pw2v7qx)

When I boot in the older version, It takes the nouveau driver.

I now see from your previous paste link:
[ 11.805] Kernel command line: BOOT_IMAGE=(hd1,gpt6)/vmlinuz-5.5.15-200.fc31.x86_64 root=/dev/mapper/fedora_localhost–live-root ro resume=UUID=91e4df44-2a1d-41e4-a5a9-c15297de9f74 rd.lvm.lv=fedora_localhost-live/root rd.lvm.lv=fedora_localhost-live/swap nomodeset rhgb quiet

The nomodeset is very special to have. And the rhgb quiet make it hard for you and us to see what is going on. When booting, you can press Esc (or shift, I never know), and press ‘E’ to edit the boot entries. Move to the end of the linux entries and remove all those: nomodeset rhgb quiet

Then, you press ‘Ctrl-X’ to boot your modified entry.

See what you can see from there.

You coud give the output of “sudo grub2-editenv list” … it would make it easier to answer you if you were to ask how to make the change permanent.

Hello,

The Xorg.0.log file hasn’t been updated since yesterday, where we see the “nomodeset” presence.

I boot again with the last kernel I have (Fedora (5.5.15-200.fc31.x86_64 31) (Thirty one)) and edited (with e) the boot entry and deleted “rhgb quiet” there was no presence of “nomodeset”.

We begin to get to something:

Talked at: https://forums.developer.nvidia.com/t/bug-nvidia-440-64-kernel-5-5-6-stable-boot-trace-was-nvidia-440-59-kernel-5-5-1-stable-boot-trace/111643/17

Well… a bug in the Nvidia driver? (yeah, I realize I am not so helpful)

So the warning (should not cause your black screen) could be removed by manually install kernel 5.4.19-200.fc31.x86_64 from: https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=1459037

https://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org//packages/kernel/5.4.19/200.fc31/x86_64/kernel-5.4.19-200.fc31.x86_64.rpm

in a directory, then # dnf install kernel*.rpm
Then reboot, choose the 5.4.19 kernel… and then install (reinstall) akmod-nvidia (I think)… Well… a bit messy to do.

Why don’t you remove akmod-nvidia and use nouveau? (half jocking)

Or manually install the driver following instructions at: https://www.if-not-true-then-false.com/2015/fedora-nvidia-guide/ but by using the 440.82 version from:
https://www.nvidia.com/Download/driverResults.aspx/159360/en-us but I am unsure if 2.6.2 and 2.6.3 are still the way to do things… I think it is fine.

I see the Option “UseDisplayDevice” “DFP” in https://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/1.0-8756/README/appendix-d.html (to fix when the signal goes to VGA rather than to the DVI) … I know it would have to go inside a /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d new file, but what is needed around that line… “The following driver options are supported by the NVIDIA X driver. They may be specified either in the Screen or Device sections of the X config file.”
Section “Screen”
Identifier “Benny”
Option “UseDisplayDevice” “DFP”
EndSection

I am so unsure!

BTW akmod-nvidia, “just” have been bump from 440.64 to 440.82 in rpmfusion nonfree updates testing.

Hello Pauld,

Thanks for your support! It finally works! I had to change the cable (the cable worked with other monitor).

But before I change the cable, I did the downgrade to 5.4.19 and then I did an upgrade to fedora 32 (Patrick mentioned that he got his system working with F32 beta (kernel 5.6.2) and the Nvidia driver (440.82). https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1806257

So finally I’m answering this from a fedora 32 :slight_smile: with the Nvidia 440.82 driver.

Just for reference, these are all the steps that I did to install the driver and got Fedora 32 (If someone needed), following the link that you provided and also with http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/440.82/README/commonproblems.html#nouveau

sudo dnf upgrade --refresh
reboot
sudo dnf install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade
sudo dnf system-upgrade download --refresh --releasever=32
sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot
sudo dnf update
sudo dnf install kernel-devel kernel-headers gcc make dkms acpid libglvnd-glx libglvnd-opengl libglvnd-devel pkgconfig

sudom vi /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
# Add the following 2 lines
blacklist nouveau
options nouveau modeset=0

sudo vi /etc/sysconfig/grub
# Append the following
rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau

sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg

sudo dnf remove xorg-x11-drv-nouveau 
sudo mv /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r)-nouveau.img
sudo dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)
sudo systemctl set-default multi-user.target
reboot
sudo su -
cd /home/userx/Downloads
./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-440.82.run

# I selected the following options
# DKMS -> No
# 32 bits compatibility -> Yes
# nvidia-config -> Yes

sudo systemctl set-default graphical.target
reboot

Also, this is the result of my tests with the cables and monitor I could get:

  • BenQ SW271 + Displayport to HDMI Adapter + HDMI Cable -> did not work.
  • Dell U2717D + Displayport cable -> works
  • Dell U2717D + Displayport to HDMI Adapter + HDMI Cable -> works
  • BenQ SW271 + Displayport cable -> works

Now, I have another problem that I will look into it and probably open another topic if I don’t find a solution.

Thanks again.

Regards.

Why do you want to blacklist nouveau ?!? this kind of comment totally infuriates me!!!

You are sabotaging end-users system because they won’t be able to recover if for any reason the nvidia driver won’t load. Not blacklisting nouveau in a /etc/modprobe.d file is very much on purpose!

If nouveau remains loaded after you have installed the nvidia driver packaged by rpmfusion, the reason is always elsewhere. (missing nvidia.ko, fake card, etc).

(RPM Fusion nvidia package maintainer speaking).
