465.24.02 page fault

Same issue here. When comparing two different Xorg log files (one from a successful boot with driver 390, another with a faulty boot with driver 460.80), I noticed the latter one stops just right before it starts listing monitors, which makes sense since I have a monitor plugged in via DisplayPort.

My solution, as others have pointed, was to use the nvidia-driver-460-server offered by Ubuntu, which is version 460.73.

I hope they fix this soon. Any fresh install of Ubuntu’s 20.04 to 21.04 are guaranteed to black screen on the first boot for DP users. I know because I did two myself.

Setup:
OS: Ubuntu 20.04.02
Kernel: 5.8.0-55-generic
GPU: GTX 1050Ti
Monitor 1: AW2518HF, 240Hz via DisplayPort, 1920x1080
Monitor 2: T24B350, 60Hz via HDMI, 1920x1080
