Just did the Nvidia-525.85.05-1 update this morning—rebooted to commandline. Looks like there is a problem with this one-reverted to 525.78.01-1 & everything came back. Just a “Heads-up”.
Have not seen any other reports on this yet. Running current Gnome & system is current.
GDM would not start–could find any screens.
Ah…I had not seen that one…I’ll keep an eye on things today & hopefully there will be another update to fix this.
hmm you may have one of the 4 not fitting?
Because nvidia packages are kernel-related and only work when running with the kernel they are built on if not using nvidia-dkms package …
so seems also happen when using nvidia-dkms
I have all of those…nvidia has been solid for me for months until this update this morning. I used downgrade to go back to 525.78.01-1 to get back to normal. Downgraded nvidia-dkms, nvidia-settings & nvidia-utils.
I’m currently running nvidia 525.85.05-1 without issues. GeForce 1030.
What DE are you using? I saw this happen with Gnome…
I never had a problem with it on my Nvidia GTX 1060 dual boot Xfce & Win 11.
OK—so this looks like a problem with the update & GDM/Gnome…GDM won’t even start --just shows a blinking cursor in the upper left corner. I can get into a commandline season the usual way & work the “usual” way–no GUI session…Again, as soon as I downgraded–GDM started normally & I was in a Gnome session.
I’m currently running nvidia 525.85.05-1 without issues on bspwm. With nvidia settings, etc. NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti.
I’m guessing we have the same problem. However, I am using I3wm and not gnome so if we have the same problem it shouldn’t be related to gnome.
These are the only gnome-related packages I have installed:
~ ❯ pacman -Qe | grep gnome
This is how it freezes for me after updating (win + f2 gets me to commandline):
Castle, which nvidia packages do you have installed? If you run pacman -Qe | grep nvidia do you get these 4 packages?
~ ❯ pacman -Qe | grep nvidia
you should be able to downgrade the 3 nvidia packages to get x back:
sudo downgrade nvidia-dkms nvidia-utils nvidia-settings
and in the dialogue make sure to use 525.78.01-1 from the selection … if you do not have internet connection choose in addition you can take the local present ones marked as local…
Yes–that worked for me…I also included lib32-nvidia-utils & libxnvctrl to make everything 525.78.01-1
yes every package that is involved…
I’m starting to look through the logs…I’ve seen some gnome-keyring errors in my system…that “may” be the tie-in…
$ pacman -Qe |grep nvidia
