Full disclosure I also posted here, but I thought I may get a more specialized answer here.
Hello, all, new here, gotten help from other’s posts here before
I have had Nvidia drivers working on fedora for a while with secure boot. For some reason, after a software update the other day (the one that before shut down will ask if you want to update, even as an unprivileged user [does this only update flatpaks?]), I have had difficulty booting. I noticed after looking at the output log while booting that it got stuck on
NetworkManager-dispatch.service. But after disabling it, it got stuck on
gdm.service (GNOME Desktop Manager). It seemed when I got rid of the boot parameter
rhgb quite, to get stuck on something to do with networking, but had warnings about the NVIDIA device. I removed all the GRUB 2 boot parameters (sans kernel spec) and it booted (second monitor now shows white or flickers in/out of white on half the screen). Its boot able now but would like to use the NVIDIA card. Here are the parameters:
rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau modprobe.blacklist=nouveau nvidia-drm.modeset=1 initcall_blacklist=simpledrm_platform_driver_init rhgb quiet initcall_blacklist=simpledrm_platform_driver_init rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau modprobe.blacklist=nouveau nvidia-drm.modeset=1
I tried removing different combinations of these parameters, but the best I seem to be able t do is boot with no NVIDIA driver.
Lots of these seem duplicated, I am not sure if that may have anything to do with it, there was a post on NVIDIA forums I saw with regard to this, I tried something similar but it did not seem to help.
Any ideas or steps I should take next?
It seems to randomly work all the sudden every around every 10 boots or so, either with unmodified boot parameters, or with modified ones, I don’t know why. I have tried repeating the same boot parameters, and it doesn’t work.
So sometimes it boots with the NVIDIA driver working, but most of the time not, and I don’t know how to control it or what causes this.
Also I would use NVK, but I may want to use CUDA (p.s might there be a way to use either as boot options, or NVK as a fallback?)
P.s.s is there an open source alternative I could use to CUDA, like HIP with my NVIDIA card? Preferably compatible with NVK (I am having a lot of issues with the proprietary drivers)
