I have a similar issue. Below is a pic of my dmesg output(no wired access to upload the output any other way at this time...) I upgrade to 33 and lost wireless as well. I have run sudo dnf install iwl7260-firmware as suggested above. It was already installed, so i ran sudo dnf reinstall iwl7260-firmware. no change. I even downloaded and reinstalled ...
You should use distro provided NVIDIA Linux drivers whenever possible because they are packaged properly and are tested to work with your distro.
The drivers provided directly by NVIDIA are meant only for experienced users or IT professionals.
I've dug around and unfortunately I've been unable to find 460.* drivers for your Ubuntu version. The best I've ...
For the posterity, the issue was in the bootloader setting the video mode for the linux kernel; in that moment was the freeze with garbage screen happening. The trick to boot the machine is to:
have the bootloader use plain text mode (GRUB_TERMINAL="console" in /etc/default/grub for grub2); and
not change the video mode during the handover to the ...
Try running “xev” in the terminal it will show you exactly what key event are being sent. This should be a good place to start. If everything is working with Mint I would think it probably has to do with some shortcuts. But “xev” will get us some info and a place to start.
Hope it helps,
That sounds like a possible hardware problem: the laptop's built-in keyboard matrix might be short-circuited with the power button signal or some other function key that triggers the shut-down dialog.
While you probably could disable the ACPI power button handling as a workaround, if you have been sold a faulty product, you should probably get it fixed or ...
Try to switch to tty1 with Ctrl+Alt+F1 when you are using your laptop screen. Log in and run lshw -c display, if your screen is marked as UNCLAIMED it is not correctly recognized by the kernel and you need to install a more recent version of the kernel, for example from backports. You can also see the messages in /var/log/Xorg.0.log.
HW failure should be considered as a last option. I have DisplayPort to HDMI adapter. My xrandr output xrandr | grep " connected" looks like this:
LVDS-1 connected primary 1600x900+0+720 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 344mm x 194mm
HDMI-1 connected 1280x720+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 698mm x 392mm
That looks like ...
As @stoney said, initramfs has to be regenerated. The reason of the corruption is unknown.
Remove all the *.ko to remove in weak-updates folder.
Generate initramfs: dracut -f --regenerate-all for Centos/RHEL/Fedora
There's a little bit of confusion going on:
the i915 module is a kernel module/driver for your iGPU, there are no alternatives to it
xorg-x11-drv-intel is what required for X.org to communicate with your kernel driver, it's basically a "driver" for the X.org server.
my display is dull
I'm not sure what you're trying to say here.
So I had to perform the following to get NVIDIA to work correctly on a hybrid graphics laptop. (below expects nouveau to be disabled and nvidia installed already)
