I’ve been researching for months now and still can’t solve my problem,
the fact is that i have a configuration with 6 screens, i have 4 on the nvidia gtx1070ti and 2 on my igpu i9 11900k. I am using nvidia driver 525.85.12 on ubuntu 22.10 on gnome 43+.
The problem is that I can’t get all 6 screens, just the 4 Nvidia screens work fine and the 2 Intel screens are recognized in gnome’s screen manager, but are black.
On X11 everything works as expected, I have my 6 screens, but the performance is really not terrible compared to wayland
I would like to understand where the problem comes from, I specify that I am in dual boot with windows 11 and that on windows 11 everything works great so the bios parameters are correct.
Is this an Nvidia problem with wayland?, should I wait for a fix or is it a configuration problem, I really need to understand
As an add-on to this, I’m using ubuntu 22.04, and after running apt update && apt upgrade and a restart two monitors were showing blank. Running nvidia x server won’t detect any of the monitors: 1 HDMI, 2 display port. However the HDMI is working and that’s how I’m writing this.
NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn't communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.

So I’m fairly certain this is due to ubuntu’s phased updates, where it installed some of the new nvidia packages from the latest update (for example linux-objects-nvidia-525-5.19.0-35-generic) but not all of them:
So my two questions are, should I just leave phased-updates enabled and endure not being able to use two monitors? Also, could these packages possibly be tied together so they all ship or none of them, either by nvidia or canonical?
