No boot after update Kernel 4.11.5 - Nvidia G310M (optimus)
Last modified: 2017-08-28 05:11:30 EDT
Description of problem:
Lenovo B560 with NVIDIA G310M, OPTIMUS does not boot after upgrade Kernel 4.11.?
Video does not come up.
Black screen, and no disk activity on very beginning of boot.
Some times shows msgs like "CPU did not respond during 23s..."
Booting Kernel 4.10.? everything ok. Nvidia GPU OK.
Switching OFF - NVIDIA OPTIMUS at BIOS (using Intel graphics adapter) Kernel boots and everything is fine. But, no NVIDIA!
Nouveau issue after Kernel upgrade (Once again?!?)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade Kernel from 4.10.? to 4.11.5
2. Boot system
3. ---> Can't boot
Please, give detailed instructions, how to provide boot log-data.
Updated to 18.104.22.168, and still same issue.
Updated to 11.4.7, no changes.
same issue - 11.4.8
Thanks. I confirm.
Any idea, on how to get a log from kernel boot-start?
No idea. I can see 4-5 messages before screen comes black. But it happens so fast that I can't read them.
I found no log entries in journalctl for this boot. And /var/log/boot.log file does not created.
Since maintainers seems to have NO INTEREST on this matter, only thing I can recommend to you, is:
To increase number of installed kernels, so that at least you keep your latest working kernel available to have full featured NVIDIA-graphics.
Or you can switch your NVIDIA-GPU off in BIOS.
This should allow you to boot Kernels 4.11.x, but every NVIDIA feature as:
will be NOT AVAILABLE!
Created attachment 1294734 [details]
Logs with are the same exceptions that I can see before screen comes black.
Last log that I can see is
`[ 2.766096] ACPI Error: Method parse/execution failed [\_SB.PCI0.GFX0._DSM] (Node ffff8983c30c5780), AE_AML_PACKAGE_LIMIT (20160422/psparse-542)`
This is logs from successful boot. But for unsuccessful boot I see same messages.
fedora 26 - nothing changes
Same problem here: I updated from Fedora 25 to 26 and when the boot process switches from text mode to graphics mode all I get is a blank screen. Only thing I can do is press the reset button. I have an ATI Radeon HD 5450 if that helps. The system boots when I add "nomodeset" but then it only shows garbage when the X server starts.
Since Fedora 26 is completely unusable for me in this condition I reverted to my F25 backup.
Maybe this but is related to bug 1456197.
Hi A. Galama,
I am afraid you have a different problem than we describe here.
Here the kernel cannot even successfully boot!
Not even text can be seen, nor I have kinda a log to paste here.
In your case thou, it looks like as driver issue (nouveau or NVDIA) with the new kernel. This I have seen once before yet.
Maybe you can be able to find other bug-reports that are closer to your case.
I am back to report that my problem has been solved with Kernel 4.12.8.
Hope all others involved experience the same.
Very boring the fact, that this bug-report hasn't been service by any maintainer.
Actually for me problem is gone since 4.12.5.
But as tradeoff the touchpad stopped working after this update:(
Alex, if you have such problem and you solved it, please mail me. firstname.lastname@example.org
