EndeavourOS fails to boot into the DE

That actually helps a lot. Thanks!

IIUC the package needs some nvidia-utils package, which in your case it can be provided by the other nvidia driver package. For example, you might try installing the specific set of compatible nvidia drivers/packages first and then install your steam related package.


exactly… first get nvidia driver working what means getting the right version installed and system working with it and after this install steam…

or if 470 is supported:
nvidia-inst --series 470 -t

if test (-t) runs without error, you can do real install:
nvidia-inst --series 390 or
nvidia-inst --series 470


Thank you! I installed series 470. and rebooted a bunch of times, so it’s safe to say it’s fixed for now.


I’m glad the problem is resolved. Nvidia drivers can come as a surprise. I also have an nvidia graphics card in my desktop and I prefer to use a nouveau driver because it is proven and works stably.
