Startx not working with quadro and hp z4 g5

Hi,

This card works fine on a gen 4, but today I tried to get it working on a gen 5 Z4 but startx won’t start.

The OS is redhat 7.6 and the driver is nvidia-linux-410.93-6.x86-64. I have blacklisted the nou driver in grub. Also, this machine does not have an onboard gpu, even though it appears later to find one by intel.

According to lspci my nvidia is on bus: 47:00:0

I currently don’t have an xorg.conf file. When I try to run startx it fails with Fatal server error: (ee) no screens found.

If I check the x11 log I see failed to initialize the NVIDIA GPU at PCI:71:0:0. If you remember, my nvidia is at 47:00:0 according to lspci. At 71:0:0 is System peripheral: Intel Corporation Device 09a2 (rev 20).

So to fix this, I create an xorg.conf file with X -configure, which is still trying to use 71:0:0 for the nvidia card.

To correct this I add BusID: PCI:47:0:0 to the bottom of devices in xorg.conf. Next I tired startx again but it fails, no screens found.

Log file now:

I’m not sure where to go from here.

Xorg uses decimal values, 47hex=71dec, please remove the busid entry you set. If you don’t have a monitor attached, please add
Option "AllowEmptyInitialConfiguration" "true"
instead. If that doesn’t help,
Please run nvidia-bug-report.sh as root and attach the resulting nvidia-bug-report.log.gz file to your post.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply, I didn’t know about the hex thing.

I removed the BusID statement, rebooted and tried again. It failed with can’t find Nvidia card. I’m attaching the following:

  1. Bug report
  2. Current xorg.conf
  3. Current output of lspci
  4. Xorg.0.log from my last startx attempt.
    nvidia-bug-report.log.gz (539.5 KB)
    Xorg.0.log (6.1 KB)
    lspci.txt (6.5 KB)
    xorg.conf.txt (1.3 KB)

I forgot to include the output of lsmod in case you need it. I have attached it.
lsmod.txt (3.4 KB)

Also, I do have a monitor attached.

I just noticed if I tail /var/log/messages at the same time I attempt to run startx I get these two messages:

NVRM: RmInitAdapter failed! (0x26:0xffff:1127)
NVRM: rm_init_adapter failed for device bearring minor number 0

The gpu might be broken. Please try reseating it in its slot, check power cables, check if it works in another system.

So I went to swap the GPU for another one (we have a few p400 cards) and I noticed that HP sent these workstations with T400 cards instead of the P400 cards we tested and had working. The P400 card seems to work in this machine. Does that mean the T400 isn’t compatible with the driver we are using? I guess it could also still be a bad card. I should retest with another T400 card.

Oops, yeah, the error message is misleading, the driver you installed is outdated and incompatible with the T400. You need to use at least 470, better use the latest driver.

Thank you for helping me!
