Bug Description

SRU Justification

Impact: The nvidia-graphics-drivers-418 package landed in disco shortly before release and was not included in linux-restricted-modules, though it is wanted there.

Fix: Update the linux and linux-restricted-modules packages to include nvidia-graphics-drivers-418.

Test Case: Confirm that binary packages for nvidia-418 are built and function as expected, and confirm that nvidia-390 continue to work as before. A test build is available in ppa:sforshee/test-builds.

Regression Potential: The nvidia-418 packages are new binary packages which must be installed by the user, so they cannot cause regressions. There is a risk of inadvertent errors affecting the nvidia-390 packages, however regression testing has turned up no such regressions.

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-disco' to 'verification-done-disco'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-disco' to 'verification-failed-disco'.

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!

Confirmed that the nvidia-418 lrm packages were built, install fine, and load as expected when signed module enforcement is in effect. I lack hardware to test whether the module works as expected with supported hardware, but that is really beyond the scope of this bug anyway.

Also confirmed the same set of functionality with the nvidia-390 module to confirm regressions were not introduced there.
