Newest NVIDIA graphics driver for Ubuntu causes TS5 to error on open

I recently updated to the newest NVIDIA graphics driver for Ubuntu 20.04 Kernel Version 5.4.0-91-generic.

Now on opening, TS5 causes the following error logs to pop up in terminal, and the program doesn’t open:

libva error: vaGetDriverNameByIndex() failed with unknown libva error, driver_name = (null)

Update.

I ran TS5 on the old kernel, so as to avoid the new NVIDIA driver and it opens. It also produces exactly the same error logs as above.

So I think this is a NVIDIA driver bug and not TSs fault. I’m also seeing other graphical instability (notably opening steam causes my monitor to go black for a moment).

So I’ve updated Ubuntu to 21.10 and now I can open TS5 once from a brand new install.

But once it closes and I open it again, I get a permanent loading screen.

Is there a log file made anywhere that I can upload?

You can find the Client logs under Linux here:

Okay so something I did last night must have fixed this problem because it now seems to open without issue.

To summarise for anyone reading:

  • I did a Kernel update on Ubuntu 20.04, along with a new NVIDIA driver and TS5 would no longer open.
  • Booting on old kernel with Nouveau graphics allowed it to open still.
  • I decided to update from 20.04 to 21.10. This didn’t seem to help, even after numerous restarts.
  • But on boot today TS5 opens fine. Closing it and reopening it also seems to be fine.

It fixed somehow :laughing:
