So, i’m running a RTX4090 connected to na Apple Studio Display (5K).
After a clean install on:
As soon as the latest nvidia drivers (530.*) are installed, screen turns off as soon as the display manager (GDM being the default) starts…
KDE/plasma with SDDM display manager works just fine.
to get my computer to a working state, namely gnome, to work, i’ve had to:
- export my screen EDID from nvidia settings panel, along a functional xorg.conf file, and loaded them thru /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-xxxx.conf
- install a third party display manager, lightdm, and upon load, select “gnome on xorg”, this way, everything loads.
Here’s the output of journalctl -b with gdm set as display manager
The only instance I managed to launch gnome on wayland is if I install ubuntu LTS 22.04, Nvidia Drivers 525.* and even then, for some reason it’ll only work if I create a dummy 99-xxxx.conf file again with:
Section "Device" Driver "nvidia" EndSection
On the hardware side of things, I’m running an asus Z690-Creator motherboard, with thunderbolt video output (which my monitor demands), RTX is connected to motherboard’s DP in port.
Is there a known issue with current drivers + wayland (+existing kernel?) and GDM?
