So the situation is that I have a laptop with a GTX 880M, and a fresh install of Ubuntu 18.04.3. I tried installing nvidia-driver-415, and after finishing and then trying ‘nvidia-smi’, I get,
“NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn’t communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.”
Even when I try ‘lspci -vvv’ I see the GTX 880M there. And I’m pretty sure I have SecureBoot disabled, although I didn’t see an exact option for it in the BIOS. I did see a UEFI setting and have it disabled.
Anyway, I also attached the nvidia-bug-report:
Thank you in advance.
