Hi Vincent,

Sorry to hear about the issues you've been seeing, but glad to see they've been resolved. Before you'd blacklisted nvidia, were you using the proprietary drivers? If so, do you recall which version you'd been running?

VINCENT (sircenty) said : #3


It was Nouveau that had been selected. But the highest on Nvidia was version 435

Hi Vincent,

Thanks again for the feedback! I think for this particular device the proprietary drivers are necessary (as they are preinstalled on the factory image). I'll make sure to add a note to the certificate making this clearer. Sorry again for your troubles but thank you for the feedback.
