Bug Description

2015-06-16 TJ:

I've published a possibly fixed package for Trusty to my PPA at:

https://launchpad.net/~tj/+archive/ubuntu/nvidia

Please test and report back if that fixes the issue. If it does I can attach the fixed branch to bug #1431753 where the other release fixes are being tracked.

--- original bug report follows ----

**WARNING:** This bug has been widely reported and has *many* automatic subscribers. Please be considerate.

**If you need help:** try searching and asking on http://discourse.ubuntu.com or http://ubuntuforums.org or contacting a nearby user group (see http://loco.ubuntu.com or search for "LUG" in your area). Link back to this bug for clarity.

---

This seems to fix it (at least for one version upgrade) for many people

$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure nvidia-331

after that...

$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure nvidia-331-uvm

(some users may be on the versions of these packages suffixed with -updates )

Update 2015-05-23:
As of the recent kernel update (3.13.0-53), the above two commands followed by a reboot may not fix it. Instead:

$ sudo apt-get install --reinstall nvidia-331 nvidia-331-uvm

followed by a reboot.

This is the fifth (or more) update of the kernel, where i have to manuaaly delete and reinstall the Nvidia 331.38 driver.
My card is a geforce 8600... and this problem has been occuring for a long, long time.

Most of my past reports have been tag as duplicates of other reported bug, the last three or so were declared to be dups of this report (1268257), so i decided to tag it that way right off...

Although when I deleted the 3.16.0-12-generic kernel the /lib/modules/3.16.0-12-generic/updates/dkms/nvidia_331.ko was deleted so it was installed even though it had gotten the error when it was installed.

I suspect you're either using custom kernels or an obsolete driver release (make sure to enable the -updates repository)

I think I destroyed my installation by doing following:

1) Switch with CTRL + ALT + F1
2) sudo service lightdm stop
3) Tried to reinstall nvidia-331. Needed to kill a process before doing that
4) After that the reinstall was successfull
5) After rebooting my desktop was not accessable anymore. I switched to terminal and I have seen the following error: "Could not find module by name "nvidia_331"
6) Than I have removed nvidia-331
7) After rebooting I have activated an older nvidia driver 304
8)...

Currently I can login but no toolbar is shown. No window borders are shown.... Just my desktop background with my shortcuts...

How can I fix that ? :D

Thanks

something like that happened to me - in my case, gnome_panel was no longer
running, which seems to handle the top and side bars and alt-tabbing. I
could just run it from a terminal (or searching for it after starting
files/dolphin from a terminal) but it's still not right.

You could also try removing all the nvidia drivers and using the noveau
driver.
In my case, using the nouveau driver with two 4K displays had a lot of
system pauses.

I don't see nvidia-331-uvm nor nvidia-331-updates-uvm installed.

It's implied they be part of their relative nvidia-331 core packages?

My logs are identical to awol99. It's also left my apt in a broken state, I can't add or remove any packages.

dpkg: error processing package nvidia-331 (--configure):
 package nvidia-331 is not ready for configuration
 cannot configure (current status `half-installed')
Errors were encountered while processing:
 nvidia-331
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

It seems to be that apt-get install nvidia-331-uvm --reinstall fixed the problem for me :-)

No, I'm sorry, but installing nvidia-modprobe don't solve the bug.

When nvidia-modprobe is already installed, any update of the kernel produce the bug.

You can use this simple workaround in a terminal after upgrading the kernel, but before reboot your computer:

$> sudo apt-get reinstall nvidia-331 nvidia-331-uvm

While I am only 1 of 2593 people affected by this bug, (and other problems such as screen/system hangs caused by the driver) I have decided to replace my NVIDIA Display card with an older model NVIDA graphics adapter, and have regressed the nvidia-graphics-driver to the 304 version.

In the past two weeks I have had ZERO problems, and in the past, I have had as many as three-four screen/system hangs EACH DAY.

After posting this comment, I will be unsubscribing to this particular bug, and will be researching other variations of LINUX since UBUNTU is no longer really supporting their LTS model.

I wish you all good luck!

Yes, I realize this bug has many subscribers.

As of the recent kernel update (3.13.0-53), the dpkg-reconfigure operations, listed at the beginning of the bug description, no longer fixed it temporarily.

Thank you to Luc Bruninx yesterday (comment above) for an alternative fix, however, the command in the bug comment had a syntax error in the apt-get options. Here it is without the error:

$ sudo apt-get install --reinstall nvidia-331 nvidia-331-uvm

I also edited the bug description to add this command if the dpkg-reconfigure operations did not work.

This is really nasty since every hard reboot deletes my SoftRAID and triggers a time-consuming resync in case the machine comes up again.

I join to the people recommending this: Obviously Ubuntu cannot provide serious support to LTS release. So consider alternatives:
a) Move to other Ubuntu release.
b) Move to Mint (they have ubuntu and debian based versions)
c) Install SteamOS (the option I picked).

I had the same problem with Mandriva a long time ago. It was a signal of the company creating more drama than benefits. I waited one year for a real solution. I am done.

No, this is *not* fixed for 331 and 331-updates; in fact, nothing has changed. The "fix released" status presumably was set by yet another inattentive user who landed onto this Launchpad page after getting a whoopsie error. Unfortunately, the status cannot easily be reverted to "triaged" because of what I feel is a shortcoming in Launchpad.

There is some good news, though: Alberto Milone over at lp:1431753 (which describes the actual *source* of the problem) hinted at intending to provide a fix for 14.04. Unfortunately, he hasn't provided any updates, details or time frame in the last 3 weeks. So, those of you who have not become completely embittered by Canonical's unforgivable lack of attention to this atrocious bug in their "Less Than Stellar" (LTS) line, PLEASE head over to lp:1431753 and politely draw their attention to the fact that a massive number of users are very badly affected.

Although Mint seems to be based on ubuntu from what I can make out (I grabbed 17.1 I think), no problems so far, and very happy with it.

Not sure what's happening, as Mint seems to be using the same proprietary hardware drivers as ubuntu (304... and 331...) - I'm not really linux savvy though, and might have missed something.

Is this fucking problem ever going to be fixed?!

I created a script to run the common fixes for this problem. All you have to do is run by passing either 1, 2, or 3; e.g fix-nvidia.sh 1

Could we expect that this bug will get fixed on time on the current LTS release ?

Thanks for the script Hassan. I ran it and it garbled the graphics on my system so I had to reinstall Nvidia. Good if it works for some people though. I guess I will try the PPA fix next.

For anyone who didn't get the message, fixed versions of the the 440 driver (with legacy GPU support) and the 446 driver (which only supports relatively recent GPUs) are now available in the official trusty-proposed repository. A few people (including me) have reported trying them with the 3.13 kernel and getting encouraging results. So, for those of you who cannot wait to have a fix up and running, try trusty-proposed ; for the rest, it looks like the long wait for a fix in the "default distribution" is almost over.

Complaints have stopped, mainly due to 331 being deprecated and replaced by the fixed 340 and up versions.
So its time to set the 'invalid' flag
