I want to report few very annoying and one critical bug (regarding critical bug I have no logs).
NVidia card: Quadro K3100M. Laptop: Dell Precision M6800. OpenSUSE Linux Tumbleweed X86_64.
- NVidia settings doesn’t track normally power source (ACPId configured correctly). On laptop boot, NVidia drivers and NVidia settings see always “battery” power source, instead of AC. It’s disgusting, annoying and must be fixed finally. Combined with next bug, it’s really must fix.
- NVidia settings etc totally ignores performance profiles. Even selected “prefer maxim performance” or “prefer consistent performance” it drops it in some minutes and returns to default “dynamic” policy. With drivers 440.8X+ totally destroyed performance. Ordinary KDE desktop lags as hell and nvidia driver is stupid enough to still go down to low frequescies and slow going into rising gpu freqs. Also I want option that would be permanently saved, that run “maximum performance” just ALWAYS, so that even after reboot it returns to it. I don’t care of power usage (Optimus technology is epic nonsense and disabled in BIOS, so my laptop runs non-optimus mode always and Intel never in use. Also laptop has GPU as MXM replacable card with separate heatsink and active cooling system and temperature is never above 62 degrees which is just fine.
- NVidia drivers 450.XX series contain critical bug and must be declared unstable and reworked. Driver hangs after wake up on standby and randomly shows black screen with only mouse over it. Seems VSync and Sync VBlank somehow also affects it. I do not have logs, as system hangs on such error resulting with current work loss, so I don’t want to destoy my work with buggy drivers. Please fix. 440.100 doesn’t have this annoying bug that I currently use, but 2 bugs above exists on all drivers compatible with kernel 5.7.X series.
I attach x.org conf that helps me to fix KDE performance lags with nvidia drivers and bug report script output.
Ahh… Nvidia, you must be kidding. Why I can’t attach logs and configs? Why only image attach allowed?
