EOS stuck after installing Nvidia drivers

Hello there!

I just recently started studying computer science and really wanted to get into Linux as many students with more experience recommended it to me.
After some research I decided to go for a dual boot setup with EOS.

During the first boot I opted for the Nvidia configuration which started cycling and didn’t boot.
After that I went for the first option and was able to reach the interface from which I installed the os to my NVME SSD.

From there I installed the Nvidia drivers as explained here: https://discovery.endeavouros.com/nvidia/nvidia-installer/2021/03/

After reboot the OS is stuck again.

As I know very little about Linux in general most threads treating comparable issues have not been very helpful to me.

My specs:
i9-12900k
MSI Ventus RTX 3080
Gigabyte Aorus Z690 ddr4
Samsung EVO 970 m.2 SSD (EOS is installed here)
Some Samsung SSD (windows is installed here)

I hope someone is able to help me and thanks in advance! :slight_smile:

Hi @Anarchy. Welcome to the forum!

Your image is only showing “success” for each process. Can you try booting again to the point where it fails or gets stuck?

Can you boot and get into a tty. The run nvidia-installer-dkms -n This will remove the nvidia drivers and install the open source nouveau drivers. Then see if it boots on those first.

Hey,
thanks for your reply!
This is actually the point where it got stuck, Ive waited at this point for around 30min and nothing happened.

I see. Strange.

Hey,
thank you for your reply!

I saw this in another thread and tried it,
after it went to blackscreen on reboot (tty was still accessible)

After trying for a couple of hours I reinstalled the OS and tried again, I got the same result over.

Now I reinstalled it again and use it without the drivers till I find a fix.

Welcome to the forum @Anarchy :enos: :enos_flag:

can you report

inxi -Fza 

also check in journalctl

sudo journalctl -b0 - g nvidia
sudo journalctl -b0 -g drm

Thank you :wave:

have you try with

nvidia-installer-check 
nvidia-installer-dkms -t

Jup, doesnt work :frowning:

BTW, have you tried kernel parameter ibt=off already?

No, how do I do that?

that fixed it!

thank you so much :slight_smile:

Glad you fixed your problem.

Help us out by choosing which post helped the most in fixing the problem.
Probably the post by @2000 ?

I think this was the solution except that the OP didn’t know how to implement it.
