It would be much appreciated if anyone could help me solve this problem.
I used to follow the below instruction to install 381.22 to RHEL 7.3:
- Blacklist Nouveau
- Rebuild Grub
- Install NVIDIA driver
- Rebuild initramfs
That worked on one of my PC, however, not for another, with the hardware configuration as below:
This PC has GeForce GT 720M. The installation of 381.22 was complete. No error was prompted. Yet, I noticed one different thing: the installer did not ask me whether to use NVIDIA X Config (later I did try to manually run “nvidia-xconfig”, but the problem still persisted). Then X Server (v1.17.2) could not start. The screen showed (see attacheded photo):
Oh no! Something has gone wrong.
A problem has occurred and the system can’t recover.
Please log out and try again.
I could do nothing but to switch to another TTY.
I consulted Red Hat technical team. They studied for many days but still had no idea.
Enabled GDM debug, and from the log file “var/log/gdm/:0-greeter.log” these were found:
gnome-session-is-accelerated: No hardware 3D support. Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0". gnome-session-check-accelerated: Helper exited with code 256 ** (process:2361): WARNING **: software acceleration check failed: Child process exited with code 1
Here I also attach the nvidia-bug-report.
Any advice is much appreciated! Thanks in advance!
