So most every single update I spend a great deal of time getting my install to function properly again. I poke around the forum, find a couple of potential fixes, reboot, retry, and try again. At this point the last update I received killed the option to start EoS. Several attempts to get things minimally functional on my part have failed. So here we are.
I am running the latest Endeavour as far as I can tell but whose to say at this point. It is a dual boot system that runs Mint without so much as a hiccup on a separate partition. It is an ancient AMD system with a larger SSD and 8 GB of ram. Has an older Nvidia card, and with the recent updates, I expect this is where the issue lies.
So here we are. Anyways, what commands can I run and where to provide the needed details to diagnose what is happening? I seem to be able to get the terminal working and have a fully running Mint version I am browsing and playing on. Not complaining just wanting to resolve this issue. I know the community is helpful here and sadly my Linux skills are not great. I do read, research, and attempt to fix my own issues but am not having any luck at this point and decided to post to ask for assistance.
I’m away at work but yes I’ll post an image. Once it hung with a graphical interface line and the latest was a network something. I have them written down at home. It just strikes me odd since I’ve had this issue only after updates. I’m sure it’s in large part due to its age too. I’ll update this post later today. Thanks.
I think you may be on the correct path. I do remember reading about that and looked at Nvidia drops 700 (Kepler) into legacy branch (470xx) but i seem to be unable to correctly get back to that branch. What would be the correct path? Buy a more modern system to mess with this OS or just hold back on updating and such? I’m a bit over my head trying to get the driver reverted so any basic step by step anywhere?
I’ve ran the commands and now after re-boot sticks on some network manager script. Honestly I am going to have to give up on this. It ran fine the last install that was fresh until the last update. Not to complain but Mint runs as I have stated previously so I suppose I do not know enough as to the why aspect but it runs using the same hardware. I’m not sure what they do different but in this case it runs and this will not.
I’ve gone over and over with commands, tweaks, following links, and etc but all I end up with is being more frustrated. I love this OS when it works but I am spending more time attempting to get a viable install than actually using it. Understand I am not blaming Endeavouros in any way and the support in this community is second to none but I am going to have to step away for awhile now. If I can gather enough parts I’ll test out a different system with a non-nvidia card to see how that goes.
Thank you all for the assistance and I really do appreciate the effort. I’ll give it some time and try additional systems. Cannot make it work on the existing Linux machine sadly.
Hi Drifter dont give up. There are a lot of knowledgeable people here …I am having the same problem…
I have spent the last few days reading and fooling with my Endeavor system. I have the LTS kernel 5.15 for fallback, which is good, I also have the 6.xx kernel, but the problem is that after the 470xx Nvidia package update to what’s needed for the 6xx kernel, I get the message during DKMS that the NVidia driver for the 6x kernel doesn’t support my NVidia GT 730 video card so. Sure enough on verbose boot on the 6xx kernel it reaches starting the graphic environment and then stops. Still of course ctl alt F2 works and things run fine there but… Have tried a number of things to get the 470 driver to work with the 6x kernel to no avail…so my question is …can it be done. What avenues do I have going forward…one I suppose is to install nouveau (did I really spell that incorrectly?). Its an older system with an Asus Tuf gaming board, I7-4790 CPU. Its a wonderful system that does most of what I need doing… of course the temptation is to be an early adopter on an Intel Arc A770 I am SO tempted!!! Aside from that I dont see much of a way forward other than consigning a perfectly good hardware platform to the dustbin. Its certainly a good enough platform to do photo editing and software defined radio…and the BIOS even recognizes an M2 SSD on the PCIe buss–but I would like to know if there is a way to use the current graphics card with the newer kernel…
Any help or suggestions, including a lobotomy (me or the machine…ahhhh both!) would be deeply appreciated.
You can try adding ibt=off to the default grub command line in /etc/default/grub and then update grub with sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg Then reboot & see if it makes any difference.
