This is from my bare-metal OM Rome install. Top output is from a dnf history, which seems to have gone missing.

Very much appreciate your help testing this.

I am pleased to help as far as I can.
I will carry on using dkms, so let me know if you need me to do more specific tests.

It doesn’t think that the nvidia dkms package is installed, but I have nvidia modules loaded, and the dGPU won’t suspend. If I can’t fix the dGPU suspending, then I’ll have to re-install. :frowning:

EDIT: That could be supergfxctl loading the kernel modules, so maybe not so weird.

Working! Also, the dGPU is suspending correctly again, so I don’t have to nuke this install from orbit :wink:

For testing install nvidia driver with dkms from control center module (GUI)
clone repo at
GitHub - OpenMandrivaSoftware/om-control-center at nvtest
and start the testing instance with command

htmlscript -s 1020x600 -i /usr/share/icons/openmandriva.svg index.sh.htm 2> /dev/null;

I don’t know if it may be relevant or useful is some way, but I just wanted to let you know that after installing dkms nvidia drivers my system log shows the following messages at boot. These messages were not present when I installed drivers in the standard way.

Moderator: Changed post to show code as code. This makes it easier to read as you can see. How to do that is here.

Where are you seeing these errors? I have the same udev rules in 60-nvidia.rules in both OM Rome and Fedora 37.

I found those errors by opening KSystemLog.
They are shown quite early in boot, just after:

16/01/23 17:04 systemd Reached target local-fs-pre.target - Preparation for Local File Systems.
16/01/23 17:04 systemd Finished systemd-udev-trigger.service - Coldplug All udev Devices.
16/01/23 17:04 systemd Finished systemd-journal-flush.service - Flush Journal to Persistent Storage.

and before:

16/01/23 17:04 systemd Started systemd-udevd.service - Rule-based Manager for Device Events and Files.
16/01/23 17:04 systemd-udevd event_source: Failed to get device name: No such file or directory

16/01/23 17:04 systemd Finished modprobe@configfs.service - Load Kernel Module configfs.

I’m getting errors also. journalctl -b 0 -u systemd-udevd gives this:

The same command after booting Fedora 37 gives no errors.

This should get a bug report. If you and @Marco both include your information there that makes it even better and makes it a confirmed bug or maybe bugs report.

Unfortunate Y’all are seeing these errors. This is exactly why we needed users testing, with information like this there is a chance of getting some issues fixed, making things better for folks with nvidia hardware.

I just opened a new case #2874 named “nVidia drivers with DKMS produce errors at early boot stage”

I’ve added my errors as a comment on the issue. Github nickname is m0nk3h. :wink:

The weird thing is, there doesn’t seem (on my system at least) any missing functionality with the dkms drivers. I’ve tried poking around in the various folders mentioned in the error, but no eureka moment.

I do not know if it is somehow related to dkms nvidia drivers, but my system cannot boot in console or maintenance mode. The screen shows the boot background image and won’t change.
The same happens if I change runlevel to 1 in bash.
I’d like to perform a file system check, but I am stuck at the moment.

@Marco
Cooker?

It should not matter since video/graphic part of system should not be started.

Anyway an easy way to boot to maintenance mode:
When you get to grub2 menu while on the “normal” boot line press ‘e’ for edit. Navigate down to the Linux line, press ‘end’ key to go to end of line. Type a space and ‘3’. (For run level 3.) Then press F-10 to boot.

Let us know if that works and the other stuff needs to be investigated but I am not sure how to do that.

no, not cooker; just rolling.

I just did as you suggested, but no way; I can’t get a shell.
It looks like bash is not responding or is not available yet.

Edit: As far as we know this is related to either the nvidia dkms packages or nvidia packages somehow. But we need to confirm that somehow perhaps by removing the nivdia stuff and seeing if maintenance mode, console mode, or run level ‘3’ works.

I just checked my ROME with AMD graphics so no nvidia anything. Booting to console mode works but there is a delay before it will login to root. Booting to run level 3 works and logs in to root right away. Booting to recovery mode boots to graphical desktop which seems wrong but not sure.

So this should get a bug report. This would be a pretty significant bug.

To get logs of this you need to get logs of previous boot. To get the log of last boot before current boot:

$ sudo journalctl -b -1

In other words 0 would be current boot, -1 previous, -2 the one before -1 and so on. We can hope those log will show something useful.

Edit: You can see this more clearly with this command:

$ sudo journalctl --list-boots

Any user interested in know more about journal logs can read this. Or you can find other articles about Linux journal online with your own search.
