Downgrade Nvidia driver

I’m still learning how EndeavourOS/Arch works, so I need some help here. I need to downgrade my Nvidia drivers to the v470 branch. I will also need the 32-bit multilib support drivers for Steam. Is there a how-to someone can point me to?

should be that per default already…

oops you’re right about that :sweat_smile:

and if you are on 470xx drivers … you will find them in the AUR:

yay -S lib32-nvidia-470xx-utils

For example:

sudo pacman -R nvidia-dkms nvidia-settings
yay -S nvidia-470xx-dkms nvidia-470xx-settings

There’s not a specific how-to, because it’s the same process as any package management.

OK, @jonathon got me started with purging the v495 branch and correctly loading the v470 branch with:

sudo pacman -R nvidia-dkms nvidia-settings
yay -S nvidia-470xx-dkms nvidia-470xx-setting

@joekamprad got me over the finish line with Steam, as when it was installed after the driver reinstall (and subsequent reboot), it installed the v495 version of the lib32-nvidia-utils package. This command got rid of the conflicting package, now Steam starts up as normal.:

yay -S lib32-nvidia-470xx-utils

Thanks to everyone who replied here. While I’m still green around the edges with EOS/Arch, I’ve been with Linux since the late 90s; just gotta get used to the differences.
