Since upgrading to f36 two months ago, using the proprietary Nvidia drivers (xorg-x11-drv-nvidia from rpmfusion) results in a completely black screen immediately after grub. My system is LUKS encrypted, so the first thing I should see is a password entry screen, but we don’t even get that far.
All the relevant command line grub options have been in my grub entries for years:
rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau modprobe.blacklist=nouveau nvidia-drm.modeset=1 initcall_blacklist=simpledrm_platform_driver_init
Tweaking and swapping them around makes no difference. The only way I get to see anything is to default back to nouveau, which has unfortunately always been very unstable, leading to crashes about ten times/day.
Even did a complete clean install today, and no change whatsoever. Sadly reaching the point where Fedora is not going to be tenable for me to keep using if I can’t resolve this issue.
My assumption was that it was related to this issue, as it started at the same time and same issue, yet none of the fixes resolved my issue, boo. Proprietary Nvidia driver shows a black screen instead of a virtual terminal or a graphical session
