Bug Description

When I boot the Disco 19.04 beta live USB, I can see a lot of errors related to nouveau in dmesg.

Because of this, `lspci` freezes, so reporting an issue is impossible either with ubuntu-bug or sosreport (in both cases, the log gathering stops when trying to get the output from lspci).

In addition, when nouveau is enabled:

- the touchpad becomes unresponsive or behaves in a very weird way (slowing down, jumping), forcing me to use an external mouse or the little pointer in the middle of the keyboard.
- the device cannot be powered off or restarted. It freezes and nothing can be done (I tried SysRq+REISUB to no avail)

To avoid this issue, I need to launch the live USB with the following command line:

$ cat /proc/cmdline
BOOT_IMAGE=/casper/vmlinuz file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper quiet splash modprobe.blacklist=nouveau ---

(that is, add `modprobe.blacklist=nouveau` to the command line in Grub)

In the BIOS, I activated both GPUs (Intel and nvidia), which is the default settings.

This archive contains the data gathered by sosreport from a live session when nouveau is blacklisted.

You may have to `sudo tar xvf sosreport-ubuntu-20190328033617.tar.xz` to be able to extract it.

This is the dmesg I get when booting with 19.04 beta and the default parameters (i.e. nouveau activated) on this device.

Just to make sure, I updated the BIOS of this device from 1.4.2 to 1.7.0. However, the same problems arise. Please find dmesg from an updated BIOS with nouveau drivers activated (i.e. default mode)

upstream actually suggested earlier to disable nouveau modeset by default, so that it would have to be explicitly enabled if needed.. and it usually isn't, since it's more or less just getting in the way when trying to get the system installed with the NVIDIA driver

Timo Aaltonen (tjaalton) wrote :

sorry, 5.1 won't help either, it's apparently a bug in the firmware and the only way to "fix" it is to use nouveau.modeset=0

For Optimus platforms like this one, nouveau.runpm=0 should be sufficient.

Is this bug still valid?

I think I've seen a couple of users successfully using P1000 recently.
