Hello, this is my first Post. So today i downloaded EndeavorOS for the 6. time while trying to either install my wifi-card driver or my nvidia drivers. So i wanted to ask the “easiest” way to install them.
Currently im having two problems:
after waking up my laptop from sleep, the wifi wents off and sometimes the card dissapears and doesnt show anywhere
This is pretty easy. First post better system information. Go on top of forum >help>eos log tool and post system infos here about your graphics card and installed drivers so we know where you are at. Right now it is unclear why you downloaded eos 6 times…
This article describes how to install the Nvidia driver,
Which other kernel? From the eos discover article link I posted above:
The package is available from EndeavourOS Repository to install it:
sudo pacman -S nvidia-installer-dkms
We ship the dkms version by default so the drivers can be kept up-to-date, regardless of the kernel version you’re using. Using the dkms version also means, you need to install the kernel header packages that match to your installed kernel(s).If you are using our AKM tool, the headers will be installed by default.
// example for linux-lts: sudo pacman -S linux-lts-headers
From what I can see of your hardware output, newest Nvidia driver was installed. If you want to run another kernel like lts I suggest you simply use the akm tool.
Now to switch between your Intel and Nvidia card that’s another story.
From your post it is unclear what problem you have with Nvidia. The other post you were referring to had screen freezes because he didn’t install correctly his RAM hardware… Are you experiencing screen freezes? If yes I suggest to save the journal log right after it happens and post the link here. You can use the eos log tool installed by default or accessible via welcome app
You can always remove the driver if it doesn’t work. Another test worth trying is to install the lts kernel (use the akm app) and check if that may work better. Sometimes it fixes some of these driver issues. Then reboot to that kernel that should appear in grub.
Ok, I think your best bet if you can’t find a reasonable driver for the wifi is to get an Intel wifi card if your laptop allows to swap it and you feel comfortable doing it. There maybe other troubleshooting possibilities with sleep and configuration files but that is beyond my current knowledge…
