I started off trying to update my computer and this has been now a few weekends of hell. This is a self-built desktop with an Nvidia GEForce 1070 graphics card
(primary)-display manager will not load. Currently trying sddm, but basically the same symptoms with lightdm, gdm, and slim.
(secondary)- I have Nvidia in order to run with tensorflow, but I was only able to get that working without having display and have since removed those and am not without working nvidia or display.
(tertiary) – It never shows me the grub menu – I’d be willing to scrap this thing and reboot from USB, but I can’t figure it out. I can’t even get into my bios, which I’m not sure if that’s because I have an HDMI monitor, but it just shows blank.
- I have tried toggling wayland
- Installed/uninstalled nvidia drivers (430) from the repository or using their run libraries with ( I get an error: “unable to load nvidia-drm”)
- I actually upgraded from Bionic to Disco just to see if that would help
- I’ve moved display managers from sddm, lightdm, slim, and gdm3
- I realize that it keeps using nouveau and I have yet to get it to stop using nouveau despite adding to a blacklist, setting modeset=0 nomodeset=0, and nouveau.modeset=0
I would appreciate any and all help.
