Ubuntu 18.04.2 crashes with driver 418.39 after GDM login with "failed to acquire modesetting permissions" on P600 and 1050Ti

  • Drivers are acquired via CUDA 10.1 apt repository
  • Tested on two machines same behavior both 18.04.2 one a P600 one a GTX 1050Ti
  • After ssh “systemctl restart gdm” it works
  • After a failsafe mode where the console was visible it works
  • login manager always shows up
  • after login it crashes (maybe because of a modeswitch)
  • ubuntu bug report attached
