Since both of these packages were updated on my system (EndeavourOS), my second monitor randomly freezes. It’s plugged in HDMI on a Lenovo Legion 5 (RTX 3060).
I’m also using the nvidia-dkms driver (525.89.02).
Acer ConceptD Driver: 530.30.02 CUDA Version 12.1, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 running Xorg. I step away from my desk for more than 15 minutes and I come back to a frozen system. Getting extremely frustrated.
I am still on 515.105.01 and can confirm this bug exists on this version, but only when i play on Steam.
So i was going to upgrade to 530 as @amrits said that this bug will be fixed, but it seems like it isnt yet, since someone after that post reported they are still experiencing these issues.
Would also love any news/to help fix this issue if I can. I seem to be having the exact symptoms of richard.decal, in that my Lenovo P15 Gen 2 running Ubuntu 20.04.6 has recently started experiencing external monitors connected via lenovo dock freezing. I was running 535, downgraded to 525 and still see the nvidia-modeset: ERROR: GPU:0: Idling display engine timed out error. It seems to have lessened/stopped the freezing, but there are other performance bugs present in this version that I would like to avoid.
I later came across this post:
And after running through the steps in the answer, I was able to access 545 through the Ubuntu ‘Software and Updates’ utility (Note that I WAS NOT able to install this via the CLI, at the step sudo apt install nvidia-driver-545 I encountered errors and had to use the GUI). So far, this at least seems to be more stable, as I have not encountered a monitor freeze in the time since the upgrade although I am still encountering the freezes.
