Nvidia graphics seem broken on linux 5.15

I just tried updating my kernel to 5.15. Everything seems fine and inxi shows I’m using nvidia proprietary, but steam games are refusing to run. Proton games don’t run at all and linux native games lock up before rendering anything.

I assume something has gone wrong with the graphics drivers. What can I check?

Also, the GRUB boot menu is not showing up for me, how do I restore it?

Ok, maybe there is just some kind of driver mismatch. I didn’t even realize that 5.15 is only on rc3 as it didn’t say that in the mhwd name.

5.13 works fine for me.

Update again: Nope, it has linux515-nvidia-470, so it was definitely on the right drivers. Just didn’t work for whatever reason. Oh well, I’ll just use 5.13 for now, doesn’t really matter.

Also spamming escape during boot seems to give the GRUB menu.

Edit /etc/default/grub and look for the line that reads… :arrow_down:


Change that into… :arrow_down:


Save the file and then run… :arrow_down:

sudo update-grub

5.13 is EOL. Switch to 5.14 or use an LTS kernel like 5.4 or 5.10.
