I got a new machine recently with an RTX 3080 GPU. When going to install garuda gnome (8-22-2022) my full screen is badly tinted yellow. So bad I can't even see what is going on. If I switch to TTY then I can see just fine. I managed to install by doing side-by-side VM install on my other machine to know what to do. After install and upgrade the yellow tint is still there. I also installed teamviewer and logged in from another computer and see normal screen from the teamviewer client. I also have windows installed and it works great. I tried installing archlinux with the gnome DE and that works great (both open source and nvidia-open).
I found this other thread which seems similar:
The strange part is if I try to install dragonized KDE then there is no yellow tint issue.
There are other bugs preventing install/use of proprietary drivers for the RTX 3080 (see NVIDIA - ArchWiki) and the linux-zen kernel doesn't seem to support nvidia-open kernel drivers which work on archlinux linux image but not linux-zen.
Considering that I must use the open source drivers with linux-zen image, at least for now, is there a timeframe to fix the yellow tint?
I have too and it usually works fine, but the new card I have causes kernel crash and it can't boot or run with proprietary drivers. Besides, telling me to use proprietary instead of open drivers is a total cop-out answer, the open source drivers should still work. The reason I can't use nvidia is why I linked to the arch wiki in my post which says:
I tried the kernel parameter ibt=off but that didn't seem to help at all. So yes there is a big problem with the yellow screen and this is the closest thing I can figure out that is the problem. But perhaps it is a different issue completely. Using proprietary drivers causes a crash and is not a possible solution at this time. I haven't collected any logs because the system freezes.
After a little more testing and restoring snapshots I have figured out a few more things.
Installing nvidia-dkms and reboot causes kernel BUG and GPU freeze on linux-zen. I can still ping it but display not responsive. Then I tried plugging in HDMI to motherboard and find that I can only access TTY consoles. After examining the dmesg log I see it is the same problem as https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/74886
I tried setting ibt=off again and this time it worked and loads without yellow tint. Though it strangely only allows TTY access from the motherboard HDMI, not the GPU HDMI.
I also just realized there is a nvidia-open-dkms which I tried and works without the ibt=off kernel parameter hack on linux-zen image.
So having confirmed my proprietary drivers problem needs an upstream fix per the wiki page, there is still the issue of the yellow tint on open source drivers. I do think that needs to be fixed because it is completely unusable.
Although I have an AMD GPU (6800XT) I had driver issues as well and it also came from the latest kernel update.
I could resolve my issues with "simply" reinstalling my whole drivers package but it is pain in the butt. Something went wrong there I guess......
