I have tried a fresh Ubuntu 16.04 install on a new M.2 NVME SSD. Using the default Noveau driver, I am able to use tty1 to tty6, i.e. login and run commands there.
However, when I switch the graphic driver to with Nvidia’s 375.39 (proprietary, tested) driver, I am given blank/black screen for tty1 to tty6.
Switching back to Nouveau’s driver, I regain access to tty1 to tty6.
How can I fix this? Nouveau’s graphic driver did not give such an issue. Is a bug in 375.39 causing this phenomenon?
I asked the latter question because I had earlier reported about getting black screen for tty1 to tty6 after having updated from 375.26 to 375.39 in this forum. https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/998343/black-screen-in-tty1/ Strangely, I did not receive any reply or help?
