Issue with NVIDIA 390.xx Legacy drivers on last Solus update (2018/05/05)
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

I updated Solus on May 5th but impossible to reboot, I had a black screen (I rollback to recover my OS).
journalctl -b indicates thousands of issues with nvidia drivers :

Solus updated drivers to newest series 396 (same GPU, same issue).
Partial solution is to roll back to old drivers (390 series) or manually install 340 series (drawback - needs LTS kernel and boots slower to desktop on my system).

Hi @MiroPsota,

Is it possible to rollback only the drivers but not Solus ?!

You can fully update, kernel and nvidia drivers were downgraded.
