GPU: GTX 1070ti
Distros tested: Ubuntu 20.04, Kubuntu 20.04, Ubuntu 21.04.
After installing 465.27 I can’t get to a graphical login anymore. I tried both the Ubuntu PPA and the .run installer on multiple fresh installs of Ubuntu 20.04 and 21.04.
When Xorg is started by either gdm, sddm or even startx, the system just freezes and I can’t even switch to another tty.
System logs don’t show any error at all… It’s like it hangs before Xorg is even started.
The only way to recover from this is to forcefully shutdown the machine, reboot into the recovery console and reinstall a previous driver version. After reverting back to 460.73.01 everything is back to normal again.
Haven’t tried other distros yet but this looks like a driver regression to me.
