[SOLVED] Boot process freezes after installing Nvidia package

Hi there!

So here is my Problem:
I installed the nvidia and the nvidia-utils according to https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NVIDIA but after rebooting it freezes on the screen showing the services started and i have to use TTY to remove the packages again.

I have a Nvidia GTX 1060 and an Intel i5-4670K.

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

gives me:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Xeon E3-1200 v3/4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 06)
	Subsystem: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd Xeon E3-1200 v3/4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller
	Kernel driver in use: i915
--
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GP106 [GeForce GTX 1060 6GB] (rev a1)
	Subsystem: Micro-Star International Co., Ltd. [MSI] GP106 [GeForce GTX 1060 6GB]
	Kernel driver in use: nouveau

I would appreciate any help!

Read your journal for whatever service is supposed to be starting (I'm guessing a display manager)...

You seem to be right.

Here is what

journal -b

gives me: https://pastebin.com/PFABi2jE.

So, SSDM is shitting itself. Remove it from the equation and just try and start X.

Re: [SOLVED] Boot process freezes after installing Nvidia package

May 20 01:47:23 omega kernel: nvidia: version magic '5.1.2-arch1-1-ARCH SMP preempt mod_unload ' should be '5.0.13-arch1-1-ARCH SMP preempt mod_unload '

Your running kernel is outdated because you either did run a form of -Sy nvidia which is a partial update you should never do, or because your boot partition wasn't mounted while the kernel package installed and thus you have a wrong kernel loaded. If the former, run a proper

pacman -Syu

if the latter, mount the /boot partition and run

pacman -Syu linux

(if you can't mount the boot partition due to the kernel version mismatch,  either use a live disk and a chroot, or downgrade the kernel to 5.0.13 reboot and then do these steps)

If neither of these help, post your /var/log/pacman.log and updated journal and the output of

mount

Re: [SOLVED] Boot process freezes after installing Nvidia package

Starting X directly gives me the following error:

Fatal server error:
[    19.122] (EE) Cannot run in framebuffer mode. Please specify busIDs        for all framebuffer devices
[    19.122] (EE) 
[    19.122] (EE) 

Full log: https://pastebin.com/qDQDbqji

I ran

pacman -Syu

and the kernel is still 5.0.13-arch1-1-ARCH.
The boot partition was mounted and I ran

pacman -Syu linux

. No change in kernel.

Re: [SOLVED] Boot process freezes after installing Nvidia package

Okay after following up on the framebuffer error if found this: https://www.linuxsecrets.com/archlinux- … /Xorg.html and deinstalled the xf86-video-nouveau package. After this the installation of the nvidia package works.

Thank you all for the Help!
