When I install nvidia akmod driver my Fedora 38 system starts behaving weirdly. Just before starting write this I decided to uninstall it and reinstall to describe what happens when I do so. After first reload system just boots perfectly fine except for one additional unknown 13.3’’ VGA display appearing in settings and os taking very long time to boot. I can easily log into both wayland and x11 sessions of gnome.
Here are two strings that take the most time while loading to complete:
Starting dracut-pre-pivot.uacut pre-pivot and cleanup hook…..
[ *** ] Job systemd-udevd.service/stop running (28s / no limit): Shutting down...
Before reboot I disable unknown display in gnome setting and in nvidia X settings. The second reboot also takes a long time getting stuck on
[ OK ] Reached target basic.target - Basic System.
It can take 60-80 seconds to move on. Then, when I finally get to the lock screen, I see normal user selection in low a resolution for a fraction of a second and then my displays get set to their native resolutions but the user selection is gone and both screens are grey. I can still press enter, enter password and log in, so I assume that it is on that third screen.
When I just log out of an account without rebooting everithing works fine. Also while being logged in in both wayland and x11 everithing is fine and additional screen is disabled.
I’ve tried saving screen configuration in config file in /etc/x11 through nvidia x settings which seemed to remove that screen from x settings, but didn’t help with fixing the main issue
When I uninstall the driver everything works fine, but this way I can’t set my first monitor to 144hz, it just gets black. But the boot times are still quite long, though it may be due to me installing driver just after removing it and rebooting
Also there is one more thing that confuses me. The x settings app doesn’t show that 13.3’’ display in a list of physical connections
I don’t know what additional information I can provide, so just ask me. I want to fix both wrong screen and long boot time, but if it won’t work I would appreciate even if you just told me how to get rid of that 3rd screen
