I have a GTX1070 connected to my Thinkpad T430 running Archlinux via the ExpressCard slot. Similar to Internal display freezing on startup with eGPU, my internal display freezed right before the gnome log in screen. I can boot into tty using
nomodeset. When I tried to run
nvidia-smi it hung and couldn’t be killed with
nvidia-bug-report.sh also doesn’t terminate after running for a few minutes, even with
--safe-mode, but it still generates the logs which I’ve attached here.
lscpi does list the device
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09) Subsystem: Lenovo Device 21f3 Kernel modules: i915 -- 04:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GP104 [GeForce GTX 1070] (rev ff) Kernel modules: nouveau, nvidia_drm, nvidia
Other system information
NVIDIA driver: 510.47.03
I have followed the instructions in Internal display freezing on startup with eGPU - #2 by generix and created
Section "OutputClass" Identifier "nvidia-egpu" MatchDriver "nvidia-drm" Driver "nvidia" Option "AllowExternalGpus" "True" EndSection
/etc/gdm/custom.conf but no change.
