Status in ubuntu-drivers-common source package in Trusty:
A recent security update of the nvidia driver provided new EGL libraries and
new kernel modules (such as nvidia-modeset and nvidia-drm), which are not
handled by the current gpu-manager (ubuntu-drivers-common) and nvidia-prime in
14.04. This problem is fixed in Xenial or newer.
ubuntu-drivers-common also does not distinguish between the different
LTS stacks, and this is a major problem on Intel+Nvidia hybrid
systems, as anything running stacks older than 14.04.5 will require
using the intel driver with SNA acceleration, whereas the rest should
use the modesetting driver. Boot parameters can also be passed to use
other driver combinations (for unsupported use cases).
1) Enable the trusty-proposed repository, and install the
ubuntu-drivers-common and the nvidia-prime packages.
2) Install the nvidia driver.
3) Restart the system and see if it boots correctly. If unsure, please
attach your /var/log/gpu-manager.log and /var/log/Xorg.0.log
Low, the above mentioned changes are already in Yakkety (and most of them
have been in Xenial since its release).
