I found myself in the exact same situation with my 960 card on Linux Mint 19. I run the following command at startup, and the fan speed never changes:
/usr/bin/nvidia-settings -a [gpu:0]/GPUFanControlState=1 -a [fan-0]/GPUTargetFanSpeed=60
Now, the only thing that I use that really stresses my GPU is the Folding@Home client and QEMU VMs. But so far, I have ...
You've probably been hacked and they are running spambots, tradingbots or even mining. Get in firewall the crap out of it, change root password, deinstall any instance of Openssh and upgrade the kernel. I just moved up to the next release.
Be sure to block outgoing ssh. Then watch the ufw.log as the peers try to connect (list of other hacked nodes in the ...
I faced the same issue in Ubuntu you can try yum install sudo if you don't have it and then follow these steps for Fedora.
So after much googling, I got the solution. It was very simple to fix that issue.
1 When the USB/CD boots press E on the grub menu it will lead to editing the grub.
2 Find the line which ends with quiet splash and add nomodeset in ...
That way round is most probably works. Installing package made for newer distro is much more likely to be runnable on older distro (depending on features of newer libraries or newer kernel). Of course that should be only done if necessary.
I was able to fix this using @roblm advice from Mint Forum.
sudo touch /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Open the file for editing: xed admin:///etc/X11/xorg.conf
Add these lines:
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
Finally its worked, i have done theses steps, i hope that help someone else too:
Instead of booting usually, use the "advanced options" option to boot with an older kernel (in this case using the 19 Tara kernel).
When logging in be sure to go to "drivers" and select the correct NVIDIA® driver, after that you can update everything normally!
Note: On first ...
According to this answer,
Bumblebee, earlier was using VirtualGL as its core and now switched to Primus technology.
optirun uses VirtualGL and primusrun uses the Primus technology.
So it seems that primusrun is new and optirun in old and may deprecate in future.
You could try to hit Ctrl+Alt+F2 to enter the Terminal and install the propetary Nvidia driver. If you just disable Noveau without installing the Nvidia drivers first, it won't work. If hitting Ctrl+Alt+F2 doesn't work for you, you could try to install the drivers from chroot via your working Live-Media.
The EDID override feature of the nvidia driver seems to require specifying the monitor whose EDID should be overridden by the output ID.
You may have to somehow detect "where you are" before starting the X server, and then either switch your xorg.conf file to one of two prepared alternatives, or add/remove a xorg.conf.d snippet accordingly.
