Message 1973409 - Posted: 4 Jan 2019, 17:51:40 UTC

I attempt to make Linux (Ubuntu) install on HDD but can't start installation - it fails to initialize video mode.
CPU is IvyBridge. GPU is embedded iGPU.
Did anyone encounter such issue?
In text mode nothing "red". But time to time it displays garbage on screen then again black screen (loos like next attempt of initialization procedure).
Pressing Ctrl-Alt-F2 I can login in text mode ("ubuntu" user).

I would make sure you have nomodeset on the kernel command line in the grub file in /etc/default. Then do a update-grub. That will make the display manager boot the most basic video modes.

If you can boot to Terminal mode via a Ctrl-ALT-F2, then navigate to that directory and edit the grub file.
 sudo nano grub


Look for the line that looks like this:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=""


Put nomodeset between the ""

Thanks, Keith.
Pity that Linux so hard to get working :/
Currently I "solved" issue by disabling iGPU and re-wire display to NV GPU via another cable (1050Ti doesn't have D-sub I used with embedded GPU). So, "ten minutes to install" constituted many hours attempts as usual...
But finally I get it installed. So, ready to try Petry's app.
I'll try to find info in corresponding thread but if someone could give very short version (what to type in terminal to get it working) I would very appreciate it.

If i recall correctly, you would have had to do that anyway to run the special app.

dont think you can run the monitor off the iGPU while crunching on the GPUs. something to do with conflicts of the nvidia driver and the iGPU driver, or maybe something to do with the Xserver. if there's a way to use the iGPU for monitor, and nvidia cards for crunching, i wasnt aware of it. i tried it briefly at first and couldnt get it to work, but i didnt spend much time on it. it's no big deal to just run one of the cards to the monitor for display.

you need to install the nvidia driver. which version of the special app are you trying to run? that will determine which video driver you need.

CUDA90/91 i believe can use the the normal repository driver (version 380 something?)
CUDA92 will need at least nvidia driver 396 or higher.
CUDA100 will need at least nvidia driver 410 or higher.

there are a couple ways to install the nvidia drivers. if you need the 396 or 410 variants, you'll have to add the Ubuntu Official PPA for graphics drivers, then install from the command line, or download the nvidia drivers from nvidia's website and install manually via their .run file. the install process from the PPA is MUCH easier in my opinion.

Well, do we have anything better than https://arkayn.us/forum/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=144 for 1050Ti ?

I downloaded NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-390.87.run
Will 1050Ti require anything better ?

which version of the special app do you have? i listed the driver versions you need for each one.

you linked to the cuda 60 app, which is mega old. SoG is faster than that one IIRC.

all the newer versions are CUDA90/91/92/100

i would recommend downloading the cuda 90/91 package, and just installing the nvidia driver via the Ubuntu terminal or display settings. it will be a MUCH easier experience than trying to install from the run file. it's not Windows, you can't just click on the .run file like an executable.

there are many guides, both here and elsewhere on the web, just a google search away, that are very thorough in showing how to install the nvidia drivers on Ubuntu. It's easy, but it's not like Windows, so following a guide is best.

So I missed links to fresh ones.

EDIT: found some

EDIT2:
Linux_MultiGPU-v0.97b1_Special.7z

Linux_Pascal+0.97b2_Special.7z

Perhaps second one the best for 1050Ti.

nVidia driver asks for Nouveau disabling.
And addition of some conf file didn't help.

they will all perform similarly on a 1050ti. the difference will be small or none.

that's why I said don't do that. it's a complicated manual process that isn't nice for linux newbies.

add the Ubuntu graphics drivers PPA and install the drivers from there. it is MUCH simpler.

I wouldn't use the 410 driver on a Pascal 1050 Ti card. It is meant primarily for Turing cards. Will work but not as fast as the 396 drivers on the CUDA92 app. The ppa is the fastest method for installing the drivers in my opinion.

Without the original links on CA that were removed, you will have to scour the threads here in NC for private links people have posted for the applications.

I already downloaded apps and 396.51 NV driver.
But now would like to learn PPA thing too :)
