Bug Description

SRU Justification

Impact: The nvidia-435 drivers are missing from linux-restricted-modules in eoan. On install ubuntu-drivers picks 435 as the newest version, and users must use self-signed dkms drivers and enroll a MOK.

Fix: Add nvidia-435 dkms builds to linux and l-r-m for eoan.

Test Case: A test build is available in ppa:sforshee/test-builds. Verify that signed drivers for nvidia-435 can be installed for eoan via the linux-modules-nvidia-435-{generic,lowlatency} packages.

Regression Potential: The nvidia-435 l-r-m drivers are new packages built from the same source as the nvidia-435 dkms driver, so regressions are unlikely.

---

The linux-restricted-modules package exists so that users who install the nvidia drivers can get known-good, signed modules instead of having to locally self-sign and enroll a signing key through MOK. But lrm in eoan is only building driver packages for nvidia 390 and 430, and nvidia 435 is present in eoan.

So on a new Ubuntu 19.10 install, ubuntu-drivers is picking 435 as the newest driver instead of using the signed 430 driver.

We should never allow the archive to get into this situation. We should be enforcing that any version of the nvidia driver that we expect ubuntu-drivers to install by default on any hardware is integrated into linux-restricted-modules, and we should ensure that ubuntu-drivers always prefers the signed drivers over other options.

I don't think any updates to nvidia-graphics-drivers-435 are necessary. I don't know whether ubuntu-drivers-common needs to be updated.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-eoan' to 'verification-done-eoan'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-eoan' to 'verification-failed-eoan'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
