[SOLVED] Suspend fails with NVIDIA driver 470

Hello,

I just switched from Manjaro to Arch Linux, and I'm having issues with the proprietary NVIDIA driver on my Dell Inspiron 3650 desktop (see signature for specs).

I installed "nvidia-470xx-dkms" from AUR (because my GeForce GT 730 isn't supported by the latest driver apparently), then removed "kms" from the "HOOKS" array in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf, and finally regenerated the initramfs. Then I wrote "options nvidia_drm modeset=1" in /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia.conf and rebooted.

Now suspend isn't working anymore (it works perfectly with the "nouveau" driver, and it worked with the proprietary NVIDIA driver version 470 on Manjaro): when I suspend the system, monitors turn black, but stay on, and my PC never goes to sleep. I tried to disable nvidia-resume, -suspend and -hibernate services as suggested here, but it didn't change anything. I also set the "NVreg_PreserveVideoMemoryAllocations=1" option in modprobe configuration, but it didn't change anything either.

Here is a portion of the output of journalctl that appears multiple times, and that may be related to my problem:

/usr/lib/gdm-x-session[2614]: Fatal server error:
/usr/lib/gdm-x-session[2614]: (EE) xf86OpenConsole: Cannot open virtual console 1 (Permission denied)
/usr/lib/gdm-x-session[2614]: (WW) xf86CloseConsole: KDSETMODE failed: Bad file descriptor
/usr/lib/gdm-x-session[2614]: (WW) xf86CloseConsole: VT_GETMODE failed: Bad file descriptor
/usr/lib/gdm-x-session[2614]: (EE) Server terminated with error (1). Closing log file.
/usr/lib/gdm-x-session[2612]: Unable to run X server

I thank you in advance for your help!

Re: [SOLVED] Suspend fails with NVIDIA driver 470

Which systemd version do you have installed? ("pacman -Q systemd")

This could also be related to https://gitlab.archlinux.org/archlinux/ … -/issues/9

Re: [SOLVED] Suspend fails with NVIDIA driver 470

Hello gromit,

My systemd version is 256.1-1

Regarding the link you sent: are you suggesting that I add 'Environment="SYSTEMD_SLEEP_FREEZE_USER_SESSIONS=false"' to nvidia-resume, -suspend and -hibernate service files?

Re: [SOLVED] Suspend fails with NVIDIA driver 470

Thank you both a lot, your solution seems to have fixed my problem!

What I did exactly to solve it:
- Creating folders /etc/systemd/system/systemd-homed.service.d/ and /etc/systemd/system/systemd-suspend.service.d/
- Copying the following in /etc/systemd/system/systemd-homed.service.d/override.conf:

[Service]
Environment="SYSTEMD_HOME_LOCK_FREEZE_SESSION=false"

- Copying the following in /etc/systemd/system/systemd-suspend.service.d/override.conf:

[Service]
Environment="SYSTEMD_SLEEP_FREEZE_USER_SESSIONS=false"
