Bug con el nueva actualizacion del kernel 5.1.2 y el driver Nvidia

Hace unas horas después de actualizar el linux-5.1.2 y el driver nvidia-340.107-82 no funciona el entorno grafico. La solución que encontré fue instalar el linux-lts y el driver nvidia-340xx-lts

Same here.

Tried with 5.1.2, 5.1.1 and 5.1, arch nvidia driver (340xx), and dkms built.
When I try to load the driver (modprobe) it says that it can't find nvidia device.
My workaround was to downgrade linux/linux-headers to last working version (5.0.13).

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTS 360M

Re: Bug con el nueva actualizacion del kernel 5.1.2 y el driver Nvidia

I have seen the same with my "NVIDIA Corporation G98 [Quadro NVS 295]" when updating from 5.0.13 to 5.1.2 today.
I also tried the DKMS version of the 340 branch driver but with no luck.

So for now I downgraded the kernel to 5.0.13 and locked the kernel and the nvidia driver and utils to their current version using the IgnorePkg setting in /etc/pacman.conf

Confirm. After upgrade nvidia-340xx to 340.107-82 and linux to 5.1.2.arch1-1 booting ends in tty with "reached graphical target" with message "no screens found" in Xorg.0.log.

Noticed with:

03:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation C79 [GeForce G102M] (rev b1)
  Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. GeForce G102M
  Kernel driver in use: nvidia

All works good after switching to linux-lts (4.19.43-1) with nvidia-340xx-lts 340.107-22.

https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/62644

Even with linux-lts and nvidia-340xx-lts I got a trace in dmesg, otherwise runnning smoothly.

[   27.120062] Bad or missing usercopy whitelist? Kernel memory exposure attempt detected from SLUB object 'nvidia_stack_t' (offset 11864, size 3)!

Same here.

I am now on the 5.1.3 kernel with the nvidia-340xx 340.107-84 video driver.

There are two reports in dmesg though:

This:

[    5.985135] NVRM: Your system is not currently configured to drive a VGA console
[    5.985137] NVRM: on the primary VGA device. The NVIDIA Linux graphics driver
[    5.985138] NVRM: requires the use of a text-mode VGA console. Use of other console
[    5.985139] NVRM: drivers including, but not limited to, vesafb, may result in
[    5.985140] NVRM: corruption and stability problems, and is not supported.

and this:

[    5.994123] Bad or missing usercopy whitelist? Kernel memory exposure attempt detected from SLUB object 'nvidia_stack_t' (offset 11864, size 3)!
[    5.994144] WARNING: CPU: 2 PID: 531 at mm/usercopy.c:83 usercopy_warn+0x7d/0xa0

Anybody has an idea what the first message means?

Same problem here. Today's update to both nvidia and linux packages has not fixed it

Re: Bug con el nueva actualizacion del kernel 5.1.2 y el driver Nvidia

I use NVIDIA driver and I have not had problems, only a few days ago with the kernel 5.1.2 but it was solved with the updates.The most likely thing is that you have problems in your configuration.
Try to delete these files executing the following command:

rm /etc/x11/xorg.conf.d/10-monitor.conf

rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf

rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf.nvidia-xconfig-original

nvidia-xconfig

reboot

(You may have packages xf86-video-xxx installed, I'm not sure if they cause problems with the proprietary driver, but you can delete, them are unnecessary, xf86-video-nouveau, xf86-video-intel, xf86-video-ati, xf86-video -vesa, etc)

I have been using linux 5.1.4.arch1-1 and nvidia-340xx 340.107-86 for 5 days now and the combination seems to be stable as before the problem.

Re: Bug con el nueva actualizacion del kernel 5.1.2 y el driver Nvidia

Bad news: The nvidia-340 driver is no longer available in AUR, and with the update to linux-5.1.7.arch1-1, the older nvidia-340xx-340.107-89 driver no longer loads...

So I have reverted to linux-5.1.6.arch1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz linux-headers-5.1.6.arch1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz nvidia-340xx-340.107-89-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz and I am locking these in /etc/pacman.conf

Re: Bug con el nueva actualizacion del kernel 5.1.2 y el driver Nvidia

Yes it is a shame, there is also the option to use the driver xf86-video-vesa to use the recent kernels, at first glance it seems that it does not affect much the performance and the graphics of the system.
The nouveau driver I can not use it freezes the screen and the keyboard with nvidia Gforce 8400GS.
