Bug Description

SRU Request:

[Impact]
The nvidia packages in Ubuntu 18.04 do not support recent NVIDIA GPUs. ([10de:2191][10de:1f91][10de:1c91]

[Test Case]
1) Enable the bionic-proposed repository, and install the nvidia-430 package

2) Restart and see if the system boots correctly. If unsure, please attach your /var/log/gpu-manager.log and /var/log/Xorg.0.log

[Regression Potential]
Low, the packages are already in Eoan.

Could we maybe get some certification automated testing done on the packages as part of the validation? Are there any tests they could do?

Hello Cyrus, or anyone else affected,

Accepted nvidia-graphics-drivers-430 into bionic-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nvidia-graphics-drivers-430/430.26-0ubuntu0.18.04.1 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation on how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested and change the tag from verification-needed-bionic to verification-done-bionic. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-bionic. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance for helping!

N.B. The updated package will be released to -updates after the bug(s) fixed by this package have been verified and the package has been in -proposed for a minimum of 7 days.

Ok, I have just uploaded nvidia-graphics-drivers-430_430.26-0ubuntu0.18.04.2, which backports the changes to the udev rules from Eoan, and which adds support for xserver-xorg-core-hwe-18.04.

This bug was fixed in the package nvidia-graphics-drivers-430 - 430.26-0ubuntu0.18.04.2

---------------
nvidia-graphics-drivers-430 (430.26-0ubuntu0.18.04.2) bionic; urgency=medium

  [ Alberto Milone ]
  * debian/rules.defs:
    - Add alternate dependency on xserver-xorg-core-hwe-18.04.
      This fixes a compatibility issue with the hwe stack (LP: #1834603).

  [ Kai-Heng Feng ]
  * debian/71-nvidia.rules:
    - Make sure each rule is comma seperated.
    - Use DEVPATH=="/bus/pci/drivers/nvidia", which is added after nvidia
      driver probes and binds to the device, to prevent any race condition.
      (LP: #1834603).
    - Use TAG+="systemd" and ENV{SYSTEMD_WANTS} to let systemd manage the
      service.
  * debian/templates/nvidia-compute-utils-flavour.nvidia-persistenced.service.in:
    - Now systemd knows the persistenced service depends on
      sys-bus-pci-drivers-nvidia.device, we can use StopWhenUnneeded=true to
      let systemd stop the service once sys-bus-pci-drivers-nvidia.device
      disappears.

nvidia-graphics-drivers-430 (430.26-0ubuntu0.18.04.1) bionic; urgency=medium

  * Initial release (LP: #1834603):
    - Added support for the following GPUs:
        Quadro P520
        Quadro RTX 3000
        Quadro T1000
        Quadro T2000
    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 415.13, that caused audio over
      DisplayPort to not work in some configurations.
  * debian/templates/control.in:
    - Specify multiarch for transitional packages.
    - Add transitional packages for 418.
    - Add dependency on libnvidia-cfg1-#FLAVOUR# to nvidia-headless-no-dkms-#FLAVOUR#
      nvidia-persistenced depends on it.
  * debian/71-nvidia.rules:
    - Remove nvidia-smi from run list.
      nvidia-smi was previously used for creating device nodes when nvidia
      kernel module is being loaded. This is no longer mandatory as the device
      nodes (nvidia0 & nvidiactl) will be created by any other process linking
      to libnvidia-ml.so, e.g. nvidia-settings, when necessary.
