I wanted to report that since ubuntu auto updates installed kernel 5.11.40 and nvidia 470.82.00 drivers, I began experiencing problems when running my machine that was working fine with 470.63.00 drivers. I’m experiencing two different symptoms:
- When running 2 4k displays, I was seeing complete freezes that never recovered, and they would happen less than ten minutes into running a 3d application like gazebo.
- When only running 1 4k display, I was seeing handom resets (completely ranom reboot) after about 10 minutes of running a 3d application like gazebo.
I also experienced a hard reset when running a memtest, but I don’t think that memory is the issue since this happened immediately after rebooting after auto-upgrades to these drivers. I tried rolling back kernel to no avail, but running with nouveau drivers has worked thus far and I have been able to run on one display for well over an hour with no problems.
I’d like to grab a dump of information when it happens, but nothing of value seems to be present in the kernel log nor in system journal.
Here is a dump of lshw: computer description: Desktop Computer product: ROG STRIX G15DK_G15DK - Pastebin.com
Thanks for any help or pointers. If nothing else, maybe this will serve as an issue that may help someone who is having these problems but not posting and informing nvidia.
Forgot to add, lspci shows:
0b:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation Device 2484 (rev a1)
Which should correspond to an ASUS GeForce RTX 3070
