Having the exact same issue with nvidia-390 package at my Ubuntu 16.04, rolled back to nvidia-387 and had the same issue. And later I rolled back nvidia-384, and still the same issue.
Then I downloaded NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-384.111.run from Nvidia's website to see if I am able to get it up and running as Jason claimed in his earlier post. Started installing the manual driver by killing the x server. It prompt as unable to load the kernel module 'Nvidia.ko'. Simply installation failed. I am curious to find out how Jason switched to that version of Nvidia drivers. So for the one last time I tried removing all nvidia-* packages, and tried installin nvidia-331 package from the repository... and the result is the same on my end. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu-X, which is subscribed to xorg in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1750937 Title: 4.4.0-116 Kernel update on 2/21 breaks Nvidia drivers (on 14.04 and 16.04) To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1750937/+subscriptions _______________________________________________ Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-x-swat Post to : email@example.com Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-x-swat More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
