X Error of failed request: BadValue with NVIDIA drivers installed

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Extreme (Gen 2) and I'm trying to get nvidia drivers working. Ultimately, I'm hoping to setup optimus-manager to toggle between nvidia and intel cards but at the moment, I'm just trying to get GLX working with the nvidia driver because glxinfo is required for optimus-manager to switch.

I have the following nvidia packages installed:

local/libvdpau 1.3-1
    Nvidia VDPAU library
local/nvidia 440.44-10
    NVIDIA drivers for linux
local/nvidia-utils 440.44-2
    NVIDIA drivers utilities

Output of lspci -k | grep -A 2 -E "(VGA|3D)"

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation UHD Graphics 630 (Mobile) (rev 02)
	Subsystem: Lenovo UHD Graphics 630 (Mobile)
	Kernel driver in use: i915
--
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation Device 1f91 (rev a1)
	Subsystem: Lenovo Device 229f
	Kernel driver in use: nvidia

With the nvidia drivers installed, running glxinfo results in

name of display: :1
X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)

  Minor opcode of failed request:  24 (X_GLXCreateNewContext)

If I remove the nvidia-utils, glxinfo works correctly with the mesa libraries.

No custom xorg.conf or files in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d.

I have nvidia-drm.modeset=1 set on the kernel command line.

I have tried adding the nvidia drivers to the initramfs but same result from glxinfo.

I'm using gnome and gdm.

Re: X Error of failed request: BadValue with NVIDIA drivers installed

Thanks for opening a new thread.

Why are you not already installing optimus-manager? It will change your xorg configs and the logics for how this works anyway. If you want to test this without it installed first regardless, follow https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NV … phics_only read the info about the file you have to create and the additional addendum regarding GDM. However you'd probably be better off by simply setting up optimus-manager instead, read it's readme for details .

Re: X Error of failed request: BadValue with NVIDIA drivers installed

I have tried all of this with optimus-manager installed and the optimus-manager.service does create the xorg configs however, optimus-manager --status throws an exception and logs the following (see the same glxinfo error as I posted above):

Optimus Manager (Client) version 1.2.2

Error reading current mode : Cannot run glxinfo : Failed to execute 'glxinfo' : X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)

    print("Current GPU mode : %s" % mode)
UnboundLocalError: local variable 'mode' referenced before assignment

Which is why I'm trying to get glxinfo working without optimus-manager.

Re: X Error of failed request: BadValue with NVIDIA drivers installed

If I configure the NVIDIA card as the PrimaryGPU, glxinfo works.

I tried installing optimus-manager after this was working but the glxinfo error returns.

Re: X Error of failed request: BadValue with NVIDIA drivers installed

Try using the git version, there's an explicit commit mentioning glxinfo issues. And make sure you've read: https://github.com/Askannz/optimus-mana … /README.md

Re: X Error of failed request: BadValue with NVIDIA drivers installed

Great tip. Looks like there are some recent changes around the glxinfo call as you say but they don't quite solve my problem.

If it is expected for glxinfo (and related mesa-demo programs) to not work when nvidia-utils are installed but Xorg is currently running on the intel card, I'll look into opening a bug for optimus-manager.

Thanks for your help.
