I am running Ubuntu 16.04 with a K5000 graphics card.
I have an automated build process which uses DKMS to re-compile the Nvidia drivers into a new OS build every night.
Recently… well, some time since Sept 26th… upon issuing a reboot command the system ends the session and sends me to the login screen and then takes around 60 seconds to initiate a reboot. If I try to type, the system does not mirror any input to the screen and also does not allow login via ssh.
The system takes around 60 seconds to finally reboot when issued the reboot command but thereafter reboots at a normal pace.
After a 60-second delay, I receive the message that Nvidia-Persistenced has stopped. If I press ctrl-alt-delete before this message, I get a timer stating:
“A STOP job is running for NVIDIA Persistence Daemon (XXs / 1min 28s)”
where XX is a second counter.
dpkg --list outputs the following packages:
ii nvidia-375 384.130-0ubuntu0.16.04.1 amd64 Transitional package for nvidia-384
ii nvidia-384 384.130-0ubuntu0.16.04.1 amd64 NVIDIA binary driver - version 384.130
Is it possible to remove or lower this delay?
