Starting with version 3.3.6-1 of package nvidia-installer-dkms, a new tool nvidia-installer-check is included.
It can check which of the nvidia driver variants (nvidia-dkms or nvidia-390xx-dkms) supports your Nvidia graphics card.
It does that by
- finding the card id of your GPU
- downloading the latest information about supported card ids from the nvidia.com
- comparing the data
Here are some examples of using the tool:
$ nvidia-installer-check Your graphics card (id 1dba) is supported by the nvidia-dkms driver. $ nvidia-installer-check Your graphics card (id 06c4) is supported by the nvidia-390xx-dkms driver. Use the --force option with nvidia-installer-dkms. Then, BEFORE rebooting, install nvidia-390xx-dkms from the AUR, for example: yay -S nvidia-390xx-dkms $ nvidia-installer-check Sorry, your Nvidia card (id: aaaa) is not supported by nvidia-dkms nor nvidia-390xx-dkms.
