** Description changed:

  gdm3:
-   Installed: 3.28.3-0ubuntu18.04.3
+   Installed: 3.28.3-0ubuntu18.04.3
  
  Description:  Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS
  Release:      18.04
  
- I expected the greeter to display.
+ I expect the greeter to load every boot.
  
  Instead, gdm3 is not stable on my Ubuntu 16.04 system, it will work for
  either one or several boots after I take corrective action, but
  inevitably this results in the greeter not loading. The graphics card on
  my Intel Core i5 system is an Nvidia GTX 970, and I manually installed
  nvidia-driver-415 when I could not load a greeter as soon as I had
  installed.
  
- 
- Searching here and elsewhere, I have tried many things to resolve this, which 
I will outline below. If you know something else I can try - to get either 
greeter stable - please let me know.

  Even with WaylandEnable=false uncommented in /etc/gdm3/custom.conf, I
  usually cannot login, instead of the greeter I would see either a black
  screen or graphic distortion like a black screen with some pink lines
  across the top, and I am only able to login setting nomodeset.
  
  With gd3 not working, I tried lightdm, and on encountering similar
  issues switched back to gdm3 again:
  
  sudo apt-get install gdm3
  sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm3
  
  This seemed to work - kind of, for the first few days I could boot most
  of the time. I have quiet splash permanently removed from my boot
  options, and boot was sometimes hanging on Started NVIDIA Persistence
  Daemon as in the attached images.
  
  Another time with gdm3 I saw the following output instead of the
  greeter, also attached.
  
  How can I begin to resolve this issue please?
