Addressing Nvidia Issues

Hey guys, kinda bounced around Debian/Fedora based systems and I’m loving EOS so far. I did a Fresh Install and did the usual steps, I am currently running a GTX 1060 and updated the drivers via nvidia-inst but upon finishing the setup and tweaking things, installing packages. I noticed when I am trying to stream, I can stream fine but if I am watching the stream in the other monitor my whole system stutters to the point where my mouse slows down and videos played in my stream background aren’t moving fluid.

lspci -v:

26:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GP106 [GeForce GTX 1060 6GB] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
Subsystem: Corp. GP106 [GeForce GTX 1060 6GB]
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 74, IOMMU group 13
Memory at fc000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16M]
Memory at e0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M]
Memory at f0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=32M]
I/O ports at e000 [size=128]
Expansion ROM at 000c0000 [disabled] [size=128K]
Kernel driver in use: nouveau
Kernel modules: nouveau

Which I believe to be correct, but even a game that is not graphics intensive, like Civilization 6 runs but the map has random blocks of black on the map. Any ideas how to troubleshoot further? I kinda got spoiled with my previous distros and never really had to troubleshoot.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

it is not using the Nvidia Driver (properitary).

There is no need to update the drivers … in case you are using Nvidia boot option on the Installer ISO it will install Nvidia Drivers already… and if you are using online installer mode it will be up to date up from the first boot. Updating the drivers will happen with the regular system update. Using pacman or yay… or the EndeavourOS notifier…

Says everything is up to date and there has been no changes, issue still remains…

ah, I figured it out with the help of Ringo32 in the Telegram Channel, I did a number of things but I think what worked was downgrading and then rebooting, then after I rebooted Plasma was all messed up so I used: kquitapp5 plasmashell && kstart5 plasmashell
to restart plasma and it was all fixed.

and now Nvidia Drivers are used or still Nouveau?
inxi -Gaz would tell…

GeForce GTX 1060 6GB driver: nvidia

I didn’t know about inxi -Gaz, I’ve just been using other commands. This is much neater.
