nVidia Drivers not detecting Quadro card

Post by philbax2 » 2018/03/01 22:14:42

Hi! I had a CentOS 7 box with a 1080 in it, and I was able to use ELRepo to easily install the latest nVidia drivers.

I'm now setting up a CentOS 7 box with what dmesg says is a Quadro P2000 card in it. According to nvidia-detect, I need the latest drivers. According to the notes from nVidia on those drivers, this card is supported.

However, when I install kmod-nvidia and the associated nvidia drivers, I am unable to boot into a graphical interface. The Xorg logs state that the nvidia kernel module couldn't be loaded:

I noticed that no devices were detected as well (right below the marked portion). Out of curiosity, I tried informing Xorg of the device's bus ID. I obtained it with:

Code: Select all

lspci -v | grep -i VGA
0000:b3:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GP106GL [Quadro P2000] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
And entered it into the xorg.conf file like so:

Code: Select all

BusID = "PCI:0:b3:0:0" (I also tried just "PCI:b3:0:0")
In both cases, rebooting resulted in no more kernel module initialization error. Oddly, it also got rid of the rest of the portion marked in the previous log. I'm not sure what module "fb" and "wfb" have to do with anything? Perhaps they are loaded to try to determine the bus ID of the card if none is specified?

At any rate, this is the new output:

I would greatly appreciate some help! Am I doing something wrong to make the driver not find the device? Is there something more sinister at work?

Thanks in advance for your time and help!

Ah! Right, I should've posted that as well. I didn't notice anything, but I forgot to take another look there. Digging into the logs, I found this:

I'm now looking into either disabling secure boot (which I don't believe was enabled on the other machine I was on; it wasn't booting via uefi), or adding the key with mokutil (which there's apparently a bug with mokutil right now: https://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=14050).

I think this'll get me fixed up though.

Thank you for pointing me in the right direction! I tried so many things yesterday, and forgot to go back to the basics and dig through /var/log/messages again.

ELrepo have instructions on how to add their key to the approved list so you could use that and secure boot.

Yeah, the only holdup would be that bug I linked to; apparently the shim doesn't ask you for the password for the new module's key during the next boot.

I ended up turning off secure boot and I'm up and running! Thanks again for the pointers. Sorry I didn't look there first. Hopefully someone else will see this and benefit from it someday.
