    Re: Trouble with installing Nvida 390 driver on Ubuntu 18.10

    Been having a few more attempts to try and solve whats going on. I thonk i am beginning to see what you have been saying being confirmed in some logs and messages.
    Here is a picture of the most obvious part of a log. I think this is saying its enabled 2d graphics but cant tell the card to turn on 3d accelerated graphics. I thought if it had any graphical display iy meant the card what working. I bought this off ebay as a working one and when i got it displaying a desktop i gathered it was and left him good feedback. Now looks like could be faulty.

    What does

    dkms status

    and

    inxi -F

    give back now you have a display again ......... I have a feeling it will say something like i965 is being used for the display ..... possibly vesa

    did you have a look at the logs too for

    /var/log/lightdm/ there may be 2 files in here - both would be good to see ......

    does this command now ..... work also seeing we have a display ...... its a double - - dash before boot

    journalctl --boot

    Re: Trouble with installing Nvida 390 driver on Ubuntu 18.10

    I currently have that GTX480 back in trying to find out a bit more info. Do want me to run dkms staus and give the logs from this card or do you want it all from the 9800 GTX with nvidia driver working? I can put it back in if you want. I was just going to do a windows 7 or 10 install just to test this GTX480 with the windows driver and compare.

    Re: Trouble with installing Nvida 390 driver on Ubuntu 18.10

    Try this command too while the GTX480 is in it ..... need to see what is happening with it .......... as we know the other card works now.

    So the solution is still needed for the GTX480 - I have looked all over the web to find more information on

    GTX480 and the motherboard ASRock 4CoreDual-VSTA - still not found anything that gives a clear answer as to how to check for
    a fault though ..... the logs are the only clue ..... and if it picks information from a chip up on the board and runs the graphics in low res
    from what seems to be the i965 .... yet I cannot see that intel documented anywhere on your motherboard ......

    https://soggi.org/motherboards/asroc...eDual-VSTA.htm

    lspci -v -q

    journalctl --boot



    Then do the tests with these ...... as the graphics card seems to be the only thing we have not fully ruled out ......
    as the motherboard must be ok to run the other graphics card (9800 GTX with nvidia driver) as it goes into the same PCI-e slot ......
    Unless the Power Supply is not man enough to run the GTX480 ..... but then it should still come back with a error ....

    To get a readable inxi you need another parameter.

    Need -c 0 on redirect to eliminate extra ASCII chars.

    You've still got Bumblebee there. You really don't want to have Bumblebee.

    Use CODE tags for output: quote tags make the text disappear if someone tries to reply to you.

    Re: Trouble with installing Nvida 390 driver on Ubuntu 18.10

    I have just gone through all the information you have given ..... have just tried to pick out the things that relate to the graphics

    and as CatKiller says .... do not load Bumblebee in/up you do not need it for that system .... think this keeps getting mentioned.
    its for laptops and power saving and may be causing the computer to look for files that are not there ...... seen it in a few places
    where files are missing .....

    Code:
    From dkms status
    
    This should not be here now - we do not need bumblebee .... do not load it up .....

    to see if the graphics card is working or not.

    Re: Trouble with installing Nvida 390 driver on Ubuntu 18.10

    My notes say it was nVidia 3.19 that started to support the switching and obsoleting bumblebee. So installing an older nVidia on a laptop may still install by default the bumblebee drivers. But if not laptop, you would not need them, anyway, regardless of nVidia version.
    I thought Ubuntu 18.04 stopped offering the 304.xx driver for very old nVidia cards.

    This shows which driver goes with which nVidia card. And any other driver probably will not work or work correctly.

    Re: Trouble with installing Nvida 390 driver on Ubuntu 18.10

    I think he is using something older now OldFred looking at the kernel in the journal file

    vmlinuz-4.4.0-53-generic

    Quite possible that its the Xenial install that was being used 16.04 for the last set of information .....

    @roadrash .....

    1 ) Did you use 16.04 ( xenial ) with the card that works ok the 9800 GTX ......

    Then when you found it was working ok - did you leave that same system in place and just swapped the card over
    to the GTX 480 ..... and found it would not work .......

    or did you do a fresh install of linux again ....
