Hello everyone. I own an 11 year old laptop, model Samsung 550P (NP550P5C). A few months ago, I installed Kubuntu 22.04 and it’s been good, however whenever I try its proprietary driver (nvidia-driver-390), it freezes on boot.
I can make the GPU work temporarily by disabling sddm (KDE’s Simple Desktop Display Manager), making some modifications and enabling sddm which I got from the AskUbuntu website, commands bellow:
sudo systemctl stop sddm - to stop KDE’s sddm sudo rmmod nouveau - to remove nouveau modules sudo apt install -y nvidia-driver-390 - to install the nvidia drivers sudo modprobe nvidia_drm nvidia_modeset nvidia - to load nvidia modules sudo systemctl start sddm - to start KDE’s sddm
However, when rebooting or powering on, the system always freezes on boot.
Can anyone help me?
I did as you instructed and I hope I did it properly. If I didn’t, I apologize.
Using the method to make the GPU work temporally, I made the nvidia-bug-report.log (see attachment with a date and time). Then I rebooted my system, but it still freezes therefore I was unable to generate the bug report after reboot.
Hello, my apologies for my ignorance, but I made the mistake of enabling persistent storage for the systemd journal log.
I realize my mistake. Line 9084 shows persistence mode ENABLE. Did I do it properly?
