I upgraded to Bionic using a GeForce 950 and got a blank screen when lightdm should have been visible. The only way I have been able to get it working has been to delete /etc/X11/xorg.conf which was being used before since my card was overclocked. If nvidia-xconfig is used later and creates xorg.conf again the display breaks again until xorg.conf is removed.
The actual text in xorg.conf was the same as what was working previously with artful and nvidia-384. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Desktop Packages, which is subscribed to mesa in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1752053 Title: nvidia-390 fails to boot graphical display Status in mesa package in Ubuntu: Fix Released Status in nvidia-graphics-drivers-390 package in Ubuntu: Fix Released Bug description: I'm using Bionic with the new 4.15 kernel. I've been using the nvidia-384 driver with no problem for a while. Today I issued "sudo apt-get upgrade" and I was prompted to upgrade the nvidia driver to the nvidia-390. After installing the driver and rebooting, I was only able to boot in to the tty terminal. The graphical display failed to boot. I have had similar problems with nvidia driver version 390 with Arch Linux and with Open Suse Tumbleweed.
