Cant get OpenGL Context after Hibernation (nVidia 450.66 and Linux 5.8.7)


I have been trying to get Hibernation to work on my HP Omen 17 (2019 version with RTX 2080 Mobile).

I am using Gentoo Linux with a custom yet fat Linux Kernel configuration, and unmodified nvidia drivers. Also I am using OpenRC, so no systemd stuff.

I managed to fix issues where I couldnt hibernate and resume at all, but I still have a big issue.

Once I resume from Hibernation many Applications that try to get a OpenGL Context fail to do so. In the past weeks I was only able to observe this with QML in the KDE System Settings.

I thought that it could be a Qt5 bug.

But today I found out that when I enable Hardware Acceleration in any instance of Chromium (e.g. Brave), I can also see rendering errors after resume. Turning off Hardware Acceleration in Brave would make the rendering issues go away, but that doesnt fix the issue anyways.

I have been experiencing these issues for a few weeks from nVidia Driver 440 up to 450.66 and Linux 5.7 up to 5.8.7.

One thing to note is that I dont have iGPU on my Intel i9-9880H, so I can only use nVidia or CPU Rendering. You can probably guess that I would not want CPU Rendering …

To give some information, I have NoFlip enabled.

As said above, I see QML Rendering issues in the System Settings, and it has this output:

QQmlEngine::setContextForObject(): Object already has a QQmlContext
QQuickWidget: Failed to make context current
QQuickWidget::resizeEvent() no OpenGL context
QQuickWidget: Failed to make context current
QQuickWidget: Attempted to render scene with no context
QQuickWidget::invalidateRenderControl could not make context current

Please note again that this only happens AFTER a resume from Hibernation. On a normal Bootup this issue does NOT come up!

The rendering issues I am talking about are simple Black boxes where whatever OpenGL Hardware Accelerated output would normally be.

I dont have the rendering bug I saw in Brave right now as I disabled Hardware Acceleration, but I can share an image once I am done working and try to reproduce it with HA enabled.

While looking for Error Logs I found that I have a ACPI error with a reference to NVIDIA X driver, so I will also try to change the ACPI vendor to Windows to see if that changes anything. Also I will try to use sys-power/acpid.

Just for complete ness, here is the xorg config:

I just reproduced the Rendering glitch in Brave. It occurres when HA is enabled, the browser is open and I Hibernate and Resume.

Also I forgot to mention that every time I resume from Hibernate the Display Brightness is lower then before, yet still at Maximum value. It only changes to the right brightness when I change the brightness once.


I now have nvidia driver 455.23.04 and kernel 5.9.0. Its still NOT working.
