Title: 5.0 kernel update issues????? SOLVED
Post by: stevesveryown on August 03, 2019, 03:23:44 pm
Hi Pepperminters,

I did the 5.0 kernel update on my hp 8440 with the Pepp on  it.  I had screen resolution issues after reboot.  Fixed that issue with the help of Slim.  Has there been any reported issues from other Pepperminters?

Peter,

I used Slim's help in fixing the resolution

Were both/either of you previously using the proprietary nvidia driver ?
(as you're now on nouveau)

[EDIT]

And do graphics work if you boot the previous kernel ?
Title: Re: 5.0 kernel update issues?????
Post by: mintspider on August 03, 2019, 09:56:02 pm
I was using the Nvidia 340.107 driver just fine until this update.

Shall go try the previous kernel, and get back to you.
Title: Re: 5.0 kernel update issues?????
Post by: PCNetSpec on August 03, 2019, 09:57:26 pm
Okay for some reason you've switched to nouveau

first see if booting the previous kernel works, then maybe try uninstalling the nvidia drivers and reinstalling them.

[EDIT]

If booting the previous kernel works and loads the nvidia drivers, try removing the nvidia drivers (by switching to nouveau in additional drivers) whilst booted to the older kernel, then reboot into the 5.0 kernel and switch back to nvidia in additional drivers (then reboot).

If booting the previous kernel works and loads the nvidia drivers, try removing the nvidia drivers (by switching to nouveau in additional drivers) whilst booted to the older kernel, then reboot into the 5.0 kernel and switch back to nvidia in additional drivers (then reboot).

so

a) boot into the 4.18 kernel, and switch to nouveau in Additional Drivers (waiting until it finishes).

b) reboot into the 5.0 kernel, and switch back to nvidia in Additional Drivers (waiting until it finishes).

c) Reboot (again into the 5.0 kernel to fully load the nvidia drivers).
Title: Re: 5.0 kernel update issues?????
Post by: mintspider on August 03, 2019, 10:39:26 pm
PCNetSpec, thanks for all this help.
a) Booted fine into the 4.18 kernel and successfully changed to Nouveau, then rebooted.
b) New issue: Booting into the 5.0 kernel, the system does not get to the GUI login. However I am able to go into a TTY and login to a terminal. Tried rebooting from there but still not getting to the GUI login screen.

Tried booting back into the 4.18 kernel and now having the same GUI login issue there.

If you drop to a TTY, what happens if you log on and run:

sudo service lightdm restart
?

[EDIT]

Sorry Peter, I need sleep .. I'll get back to this in the morning my mate.

From the 5.0 kernel TTY4 I ran the command, the screen went dark, I waited, then manually pressed CTRL-ALT-F7, and in the GUI logged into my user (it was defaulting to guest).

Went to Additional Drivers and chose Nvidia 340.107.
Rebooted.
Booted into lightdm just fine this time, but in 640x480 mode.
Checked Additional Drivers and confirmed that the system was using the Nvidia driver.
Ran: sudo nvidia-xconfig
Ran: sudo nvidia-settings --- but not seeing any resolution or profile information

Stopping there and going to bed.
Shall check here after church tomorrow.

Post by: PCNetSpec on August 04, 2019, 10:40:41 am
Do you have an
Code: [Select]
/etc/X11/xorg.conf
file ?



Maybe try this to uninstall the nvidia drivers
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get purge nvidia-*
then just in case any of these configs got left behind (be aware most of the following 'rm' commands will quite correctly fail because the file doesn't exist, just carry on with the next)
Code: [Select]
sudo rm -v /etc/X11/xorg.conf
then
Code: [Select]
sudo rm -v /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-drm-nomodeset.conf
then
Code: [Select]
sudo rm -v ~/.nvidia-settings-rc
then
Code: [Select]
sudo rm -v /lib/modprobe.d/nvidia-graphics-drivers.conf
then
Code: [Select]
sudo rm -v /lib/modprobe.d/nvidia-kms.conf
then
Code: [Select]
sudo rm -v /lib/systemd/system/nvidia-persistenced.service
then
Code: [Select]
sudo rm -v /lib/udev/rules.d/71-nvidia.rules
then
Code: [Select]
sudo rm -v /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-nvidia.conf
then
Code: [Select]
sudo rm -v /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/11-nvidia-prime.conf
then
Code: [Select]
sudo rm -v /usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/90-nvidia.conf
then rebuild the initramfs with:
Code: [Select]
sudo update-initramfs -uk all
then REBOOT.

Does the system boot properly ?

Is the resolution OK ?

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fz
?

Went to Additional Drivers, which searched and correctly suggested Nvidia 340-107
Installed the driver.
Rebooted.
Back to 640x480 and inxi is saying nouveau

Going to remove all Nvidia and just run on nouveau.
This is more of a 2nd machine these days and mostly used for software testing.
Shall report when that is done.

Kernel 5.0
Nouveau driver for the Nvidia GeForce GTX 260M
1600x900
Going to stay with this config, as obviously the Nvidia 340.107 driver does not like the 5.0 kernel in Peppermint.

I had used a live usb to help repair the grub.  Rebooted and the weird screen I had posted earlier was gone but resolution was still off.  I have decided to take the Pepp off the HP with nvidia and put it on an HP with intel graphics.  I always appreciate the help you give, thanks.

So the only problems I'm getting on all of my Desktops with Kernel 5.0.0-23 is Pulse Audio buzz, through my speakers. To fix it have gone back to the 418 Kernel, till every piece of hardware has been thoroughly tested, with Kernel 5 I'm not bothering with it till it gets fixed. Though on my Laptops running Intel only graphics, I get no weird clicking through the sound card. Here on my main PC Desktop Ryzen build, every time I boot in the speakers click, then on my refurbished to another case my old Asus media computer, the speakers continually buzz. Moved back to 418 and no sound issues at all. I know the makers of Kernel 5 have not got the resources to test every single piece of hardware, but I also think it was this Kernel that caused my Batman Game to crash three times, through Proton, Steam Play, Wine. Since moving back to 418, this game has not crashed. Is there somewhere to report bugs, crashes in Kernel 5.0.0-23? I will answer my own question. Poor Ubuntu they get hit daily with more and more crash reports, of this Kernel. Though I'm  :o as to why they would release this Kernel so soon?

The 418.0-25 is all OK. I have restricted extras in and all the other sound codecs, so I'm at a loss as to why? I get buzzing through my big speakers on my media Pep machine and a strange tap or crunch sound when watching YouTube in kernel 5.0.0-25 as it has updated to, plus for the Nvidia has updated to 415.0-58-generic. On the Media Pep that is AMD and DDR3, could there be something that it don't like? 418 kernel the original kernel that Pep ten came with works flawlessly, no buzz and no tap or crunch when starting a YouTube video.

I remember I had buzz on 5.0-rc2, but that was gone on 5.0-rc7...
Anyway, I haven't been running rc's for sometime now.
Let's see what the future will bring...

Edit: To be honest, I haven't been using Linux in two months, so I wouldn't know... been only running BSD.

Not sure I got that...

I was going to say, try the current upstream, i.e. 5.2.8... but, then I thought that maybe I shouldn't since I haven't really used it.

Hi pin,

A "spoilsport" is a person whose actions (in this case, using BSD) spoil the pleasure of others (in this case, those whose "pleasure" is their struggling with the Linux kernel 5.0.0 sound issues).  :D


All meant in jest, of course, mate.  8)

Thank you for the clarification Slim, appreciated.

I do boot into Linux, right now mainly to run updates once or twice a week. But, I tend to follow the releases from upstream, which means that I'm currently on the 5.2.8 kernel.
I've been doing this for some time now, so in my mind the 5.0.0 is already EOL.
My daughters machine, is also following the upstream, but there on the LTS with the longest EOL, i.e. the 4.14 series, currently 4.14.138.

Despite all this, I did remember the sound issue I had when testing the release candidates mentioned on my previous post. Then again,... probably not relevant since I'm not on amd, but intel.

The future will tell...

5.0.0 is not EOL in Ubuntu/Peppermint .. it'll be fully supported until PM10 automagically rolls you onto the next HWE kernel (whatever 19.10 uses).

Sorry if my post could cause some confusion, I know the 5.0.0 is fully supported on Ubuntu/Peppermint.

No worries my mate, just clarifying :)
