Bug#924704: bumblebee-nvidia: nvidia-driver 410 doesn't appear to allow the unloading of the nvidia module

Daniel O.
The graphics card in my laptop is an Nvidia Geforce GTX 1050.

Package: bumblebee-nvidia
Version: 3.2.1-20
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Dear Maintainer, I write this bug report because this bumblebee/bumblebeed
doesn't work as it should.

   * What led up to the situation? Bumblebee used to work correctly when the
nvidia driver was at 390. A few days ago it was upgraded to 410. At the time I
was running Debian Buster (testing as of this writing). That's where things
started to get problematic. It appears that the nvidia module couldn't be
unloaded or something. bbswitch reported as "ON" without optirun, and as the
nvidia drivers were considered in use, I was unable to unbind the nvidia driver
for VGA Passthrough as I had been doing before.
   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
     ineffective)? I uninstalled every bumblebee and nvidia package. I then
reinstalled everything. No luck. I then uninstalled everything and went for the
legacy 390 package. Unfortunately there were problems with that: nvidia-cuba-
toolkit and nvidia-cuba-dev require the latest nvidia driver installed. On top
of that, bumblebee refused to see the legacy 390 drivers as a glx alternative.
I uninstalled all the nvidia stuff again, switched to Debian Sid, and installed
the latest nvidia drivers again (they were slightly more up to date on Sid than
in Buster). Still no change.
   * What was the outcome of this action? Bumblebee should be able to blacklist
the nvidia driver and isolate it from the operating system in such a way that
the system would run on the integrated GPU and run the discrete GPU for
applications when called for.
   * What outcome did you expect instead? The nvidia driver is not blacklisted,
and the discrete GPU is in control.

On a different note, I tried posting a bug report upstream. It has some
information this report might not have (vice versa is definitely the case,
unfortunately). It can be found at https://github.com/Bumblebee-
Project/Bumblebee/issues/1023

Bug#924704: bumblebee-nvidia: nvidia-driver 410 doesn't appear to allow the unloading of the nvidia module

Daniel O.
I already tried legacy-390xx. As I said before, there doesn't seem to be equivalents of nvidia-cuda-toolkit and nvidia-cuda-dev that don't try to force the latest nvidia drivers. Also, bumblebee doesn't recognize the legacy-390xx drivers as a GLX alternative (I get an error stating such).

If I was to remove bbswitch, would I be unable to use PRIMUS? Also how would I go about with my VGA Passthrough setup?

Try switching to legacy-390xx, or removing bbswitch and using the
kernel's power management, with these laptops it's always a dice roll
on what will actually work

That's not the case anymore in buster, 390xx works fine with other packages

Bug#924704: bumblebee-nvidia: nvidia-driver 410 doesn't appear to allow the unloading of the nvidia module

Daniel O.
Well, the good news is, the GLX alternative bug with legacy-390xx appears to have been fixed. 

The bad news is that the main bug of bumblebeed failing to load at startup for whatever reason is still there. Have any suggestions for troubleshooting? (Also, since this bug affects both the latest nvidia-driver (410) as well as nvidia-driver-legacy-390xx, I'd prefer trying to work with 410)

Luca Boccassi-3
As mentioned your hardware might not work with bbswitch and might
instead work with the kernel PM. Remove bbswitch and set
AlwaysUnloadKernelDriver=true in bumblebee's config file.

Bug#924704: bumblebee-nvidia: nvidia-driver 410 doesn't appear to allow the unloading of the nvidia module

Daniel O.
Having set PMMethod to "none" and AlwaysUnloadKernelDriver to "true", I still get the bug involving the inability to unload the nvidia module for the purpose of VGA Passthrough. I wonder if my issue is connected to https://github.com/Bumblebee-Project/bbswitch/issues/173 as "lsmod | grep nvidia" gives the result 

nvidia              16670720  9
ipmi_msghandler        65536  2 ipmi_devintf,nvidia

Any new suggestions?

As mentioned your hardware might not work with bbswitch and might
instead work with the kernel PM. Remove bbswitch and set
AlwaysUnloadKernelDriver=true in bumblebee's config file.

Bug#924704: bumblebee-nvidia: nvidia-driver 410 doesn't appear to allow the unloading of the nvidia module

Luca Boccassi-3
There are other threads on the upstream repositories with people
suggesting various acpi values for the kernel command line, have a look
if one of the combinations work for your hardware

Daniel O.
Exactly what acpi values should I try? My GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT reads "quiet nogpumanager acpi_osi=! acpi_osi=Linux acpi_osi=\"Windows 2015\" pcie_port_pm=off intel_iommu=on,igfx_off kvm.ignore_msrs=1 default_hugepagesz=1G hugepagesz=1G hugepages=8 transparent_hugepage=never"

I've been following the guide https://gist.github.com/Misairu-G/616f7b2756c488148b7309addc940b28 (with some differences. Debian doesn't have nvidia-prime for instance).

There are other threads on the upstream repositories with people
suggesting various acpi values for the kernel command line, have a look
if one of the combinations work for your hardware

Bug#924704: bumblebee-nvidia: nvidia-driver 410 doesn't appear to allow the unloading of the nvidia module

Daniel O.
I've done some serious troubleshooting. Here's a new xorg log. Notable issues include "ACPI: failed to connect to the ACPI event daemon", (EE) kbd: <default keyboard>: failed to set us as foreground .pgrp (Inappropriate ioctl for device), and (EE) /dev/dri/card0: failed to set DRM interface version 1.4: Permission denied

Bug#924704: bumblebee-nvidia: nvidia-driver 410 doesn't appear to allow the unloading of the nvidia module

Daniel O.
I've given up on solving this issue. I hope that, if someone else was in the same boat I was in, the issue gets resolved.
