Black screen on Precision 3571 with Nvidia T600 GPU


I’ve just deployed Alma Linux 8.6 on a DELL Precision laptop with a T600 Nvidia GPU.

# lspci |grep -i nvidia
0000:01:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation TU117GLM [T600 Laptop GPU] (rev a1)

I’ve installed the Nvidia drivers with:

dnf config-manager --add-repo
dnf install nvidia-driver nvidia-settings

Now, I get a black screen at reboot time. I can connect to the laptop via ssh and list the modules loaded:

# lsmod |grep nvidia
nvidia_drm             61440  3
nvidia_modeset       1101824  3 nvidia_drm
nvidia_uvm           1204224  0
nvidia              40214528  162 nvidia_uvm,nvidia_modeset
drm_kms_helper        266240  2 nvidia_drm,i915
drm                   585728  9 drm_kms_helper,nvidia,nvidia_drm,i915,ttm
# lsmod |grep -i nouveau

I do not find information in /var/log/Xorg.0.log (no “EE” lines) nor in /var/log/mesages.
How to investigate ?

You need to install a newer kernel for your 12th gen intel igpu.

Thanks Generix for youproposition.
Indeed I have the latest available Kernel in Alma Linux 8.6 which is just a rebuild of RHEL8.6. So rhe rpm provided by nvidia reposit for RHEL8 should work no ? I do not want to use 9.0 version as some software are not available for it at this time.
What kernel version do you suggest ?

Since yesterday evening I have a new solution to test: DELL provides some nvidia drivers for their hardware. But it is a manual install, modifying several files by hand… so difficult to integrate in a PXE boot +Kickstart install workflow. But I should also test it.

Thanks again

You don’t need any other nvidia drivers, thos are functional. The internal display is driven by the intel igpu which is missing drivers.
