Nvidia updates boot to flashing cursor

Too late…already running. :roll_eyes:

Probably no worries… Hope your system is otherwise up to date.

Yes i had already updated everything except the nvidia.

So let’s see what happens. :smile:

Well that is just strange. It worked and this is only the second time i have had an issue with the nvidia drivers.

So on the other computer which only boots to TTY i do the same from root?

Edit: I will add the -Syu though & I’ll let you know!

I was able to fix the booting on the other system with Nvidia GTX 1650 also by reinstalling nvidia-dkms linux kernel and headers. Very strange that both had the same issue and no one else was reporting any issue with these updates.

Just guessing, but it might have something to do with the initramfs generation.

I don’t know what the actual problem could be, but I’ve seen that re-installing these sometimes helps. Maybe an update to some headers?

I noticed this morning that nvidia-settings was an update to match the current install version of nvidia drivers. You would think all of this would be implemented at the same time when they have a newer driver update.
