PACKAGE NEEDS LONG TERM MAINTAINER

I have adopted the 390xx packages to keep them secure. I do not run any 390xx hardware so will not notice any breakages and cannot test any changes.

Until such time as someone else steps up to maintain these packages - ideally someone who actually has 390xx hardware - I have to rely on you to tell me what changes are needed.

Don't expect a response if you post only "this doesn't work", and do not email me to complain about the package not working!

Use this forum thread for discussion: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1946926

A binary package is also available in my kernel-lts unofficial user repository.

Thanks a lot @Scarlet and @Juggrnaut

I was have the error message:

primus: fatal: Bumblebee daemon reported: error: [XORG] (EE) NVIDIA: Use the -ignoreABI option to override this check.

The solution for me was edit the file /etc/bumblebee/xorg.conf.nvidia like the recommendation of @Juggrnaut and add in the Section "Device" zone, the follow lines:

Section "Device"
    ...
    BusID "PCI:01:00:0"
    Option "AllowExternalGpus" "true"  # If the GPU is external
    ...
EndSection

+info

And at the end of the file, add the follow section like the recommendation of @Scarlet:

Section "ServerFlags"
        Option "IgnoreABI" "1"
EndSection

Or, just update your copy of nvidia-390xx-utils as it includes an override file.

For all those with that Xorg ABI error and having no /etc/X11/xorg.conf: Search for a file called /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-server_flags.conf. If it does not exist yet, create it. Amend the file and paste the well-known contents there:

Section "ServerFlags"
  Option "IgnoreABI" "1"
EndSection

Let's see if Nvidia indeed fixes that. According to https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=2003589#p2003589, Nvidia stated it is supported and receives compat fixes until the end of 2022.

After adding in "IgnoreABI" to "/etc/bumblebee/xorg.conf.nvidia" I now receive the following error and it doesn't load:

(WW) NVIDIA: The driver will continue to load, but may behave strangely.

(WW) NVIDIA: This driver was compiled against the X.Org server SDK from commit 4c00369024c9754e670fca37804711fef2980e2f and may not be compatible with the final version of this SDK.


UPDATE <SOLVED> I've figured out my issue and posting it in case anyone else runs into the same problem.

Prior to the recent updates, I never needed to modify the "/etc/bumblebee/xorg.conf.nvidia" file and it worked just fine OOTB. Now after the recent updates, I had to modify that file to now also include the BusID of the nvidia card. Details found here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Bumblebee#Multiple_NVIDIA_Graphics_Cards_or_NVIDIA_Optimus

So after adding in the BusID (along with the "IgnoreABI" setting), it is working again.

Do you guys have a solution to avoid the XID errors which freeze desktop ?

JKMooney commented on 2021-11-10 22:07

Impressive, a patch put in place within a day....and here I was getting ready to just concede "end of life" for this old card ;)

jonathon commented on 2021-11-10 17:47

I've included an override file with 390.144-3 as a stop-gap until Nvidia update the driver - while things might randomly break, at least Xorg will load...

hute37 commented on 2021-11-10 17:17

@Scarlet, work like a charm!. For lazy ones like me still using bumblebee the xorg,conf is: /etc/bumblebee/xorg.conf.nvidia

quimkaos commented on 2021-11-10 16:57

@Scarlet Thank you for that!! That was really useful! In my case i had to create a xorg.conf in /etc/X11/ only with that section, since i had no xorg.conf file.

@Scarlet, thanks a lot.
