[SOLVED] Upgrade to kernel and nvidia breaks USB-C HDMI display

Dell XPS 17 laptop. Dual external monitors over usb-c hdmi adapters has been working for a long time. After update I noticed two issues:

1. arandr and xrandr don't list the usb-c hdmi outputs at all so I can't use them
2. the laptop screen works but is called "None" in arandr instead of "eDP-1" like I am used to.

I checked the pacman log:

[2024-02-03T17:23:01-0600] [ALPM] upgraded linux (6.6.7.arch1-1 -> 6.7.3.arch1-1)
[2024-02-03T17:23:01-0600] [ALPM] upgraded linux-firmware-whence (20231211.f2e52a1c-1 -> 20240115.9b6d0b08-2)
[2024-02-03T17:23:02-0600] [ALPM] upgraded linux-firmware (20231211.f2e52a1c-1 -> 20240115.9b6d0b08-2)
[2024-02-03T17:23:03-0600] [ALPM] upgraded linux-headers (6.6.7.arch1-1 -> 6.7.3.arch1-1)

and reverted the kernel, firmware and headers to what they had been before the upgrade. Booting with the 6.6.7 kernel I found that arandr now called the laptop screen "eDP-1" (resolving issue 2) but I still couldn't see the usb-c hdmi outputs.

so again checked the pacman log:

[2024-02-03T17:23:03-0600] [ALPM] upgraded nvidia (545.29.06-6 -> 545.29.06-16)
[2024-02-03T17:22:50-0600] [ALPM] upgraded nvidia-utils (545.29.06-1 -> 545.29.06-3)

and reverted the update to nvidia and nvidia-utils as well. Upon rebooting I found the usb-c outputs showed in xrandr and arandr and were usable again.

So its working for now,  but I am unsure what the right next step is.  I would like to keep up to date on the kernel and nvidia. Is there something I need to reconfigure to get the new versions working or is this a bug I should report somewhere?

Here is my dmesg output from before I downgraded the kernel and nvidia in case there is a clue there that I missed:

https://pastebin.pl/view/c2372ea5

I noticed this message in it:

[   42.709675] usb 1-2: device descriptor read/64, error -71

which led me to this post:

https://forums.unraid.net/topic/97474-u … -solution/

I tried setting:

/sys/module/usbcore/parameters/old_scheme_first

from N to Y and unplugging and replugging the device but it didn't help.

2. the laptop screen works but is called "None" in arandr instead of "eDP-1" like I am used to.

That's the SIMPLYDUMB device, enable https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/NVIDIA … de_setting - use the "nvidia_drm.modeset=1" kernel parameter (modprobe.conf won't do!), stay away from fbdev=1 until nvidia has fixed that.

Re: [SOLVED] Upgrade to kernel and nvidia breaks USB-C HDMI display

Unfortunately, that seems to make things worse. I reapplied the updates, added that kernel param to my refind config and rebooted. When I run startx I see:

Cannot run in framebuffer mode. Please specify busIDs for all framebuffer devices.

and xorg does not start.

A quick google search found lots of suggestions to upgrade to a newer kernel to resolve that error but I already updated to the newest.

Re: [SOLVED] Upgrade to kernel and nvidia breaks USB-C HDMI display

Please post your Xorg log for the failed startx, https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Xorg#General
You do not want to run anything on the simpledrm device, you'll have to sort this out w/ the device blocked.

It's a hybrid system and tries to run on the intel card but that's somehow not available?

ls -R /{etc,usr/share}/X11/xorg.conf*

And try to add /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-igpu.conf

Section "Device"
	Identifier "Intel"
	Driver "modesetting"
	BusID "PCI:0:2:0"
EndSection

If this doesn't work, please post your complete system journal for the boot:

sudo journalctl -b | curl -F 'file=@-' 0x0.st

Fyi, "ibt=off" is no longer necessary, nvidia fixed that.

Re: [SOLVED] Upgrade to kernel and nvidia breaks USB-C HDMI display

Thanks so much for your help!

I recall now that I was getting odd pauses about a year ago where fluxbox would freeze for a second or two. At the time I saw messages like this:

Jul 14 15:25:10 laptop kernel: i915 0000:00:02.0: [drm] GPU HANG: ecode 12:1:84dffffb, in Main Thread [11143]

in dmesg.

You mentioning that it couldn't find the intel card made me remember having blacklisted the i915 module to resolve that problem.

I have:

* re-applied the updates
* added nvidia_drm.modeset=1
* removed ibt=off
* removed the i915 module blacklist

I am now able to use my usb-c hdmi adapters again. Hopefully I won't see a recurrence of the GPU hangs.
