Re: Nvidia drivers




Thanks for being a good guy and following up; I was looking into this and this report was keeping me from apt-get dist-upgrade this evening, so I know I'm OK now...

Silent thanks to all that have faffed with getting this sorted in the last week -- cheers!

Actually, as of version 390.67-2, that's no longer needed. Quoting [1]:
I just tested with 4.16 kernel and 390.67-2 nvidia-driver, and
unfortunately this work-around is still required on my system. I was
unable to boot my system properly without the kernel parameter in GRUB.

You know what? Thats actually not true. I didn't realize that I was
still using the old driver version when I tested.

🤦‍♂️

You can disregard. The kernel parameter is not needed with 390.67-2
