Bug Description

In your logs I see see vesafb warnings and it needs to be disabled.

NVRM: Your system is not currently configured to drive a VGA console
4月 01 07:55:58 ATC kernel: NVRM: on the primary VGA device. The NVIDIA Linux graphics driver
4月 01 07:55:58 ATC kernel: NVRM: requires the use of a text-mode VGA console. Use of other console
4月 01 07:55:58 ATC kernel: NVRM: drivers including, but not limited to, vesafb, may result in
4月 01 07:55:58 ATC kernel: NVRM: corruption and stability problems, and is not supported.

To disable it,
Add 'video=vesafb:off vga=normal'
on the kernel command line in the bootloader configuration file.

Then reboot.

Let me know if this helps or not and if not describe the problem and generate and attach new logs.

System Ubuntu Budgie 17.04 with ryzen 1800X and Titian X Pascal tring to solve the problem that enable 2way SLI causes black screen and can doing nothing


Q1:Why the NVIDIA official said the motherboard is not in the official list?
Only am3+ show up
Q2:does it means the official support not followed titly but will support inthe future
Q3:does it mean it will not support am4 motherboard under Linux With SLI only Windows can use the sli function?
Q4:how to add the command
'video=vesafb:off vga=normal
as the official said (How to do and where to put it )
