I’ve been using Antergos for about 2 years now, and have converted the installation to Antefree plasma (thanks to instructions provided by antergos user just).
I finally have the time and resources to install EndeavourOS.
The graphics card I have is $ inxi -G Graphics: Device-1: NVIDIA GF108 [GeForce GT 630] driver: nvidia v: 390.132 Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.6 driver: nvidia resolution: 1920x1080~60Hz Message: Unable to show advanced data. Required tool glxinfo missing.
So is the recommended method
1. install as normal
2. then run nvidia-installer-dkms ?
I’m assuming this is a laptop then? The reason i ask is you said you are using the 390.xx driver. The
GT 630M takes the 390.xx driver but the GT 630 Desktop card uses the 440…xx series driver according to Nvidia site.
Edit: Are you able to boot up on the live ISO no problem?
If it is a desktop card GT 630 you should be using the 440.xx series driver.
@ricklinux No I haven’t yet on this machine, I’ve tried the net-installer on a laptop, and it got stuck at 17% `twas late at night and the wifi may have been flaky so not worth investigating until I try with a wired connection.
Thanks for your help.
Now, according to the Nvidia drivers page, the one that goes for this graphic is 435.21
Question: Should I change it to 435.21 or continue with 440.44 which I see that I have no tears or strange things on the screen with the native resolution of 1920x1080 ?
Thank you very much, now I do not understand the difference of both pages, the one you answered did not know it and the one I postie is another controller … but hey, I do not want to sin dense or heavy, so I stay as I am with the 440.44
As always very friendly!
It really goes very well, I advise a friend!
I had not changed the desktop PC for more than 10 years, since my son was the one who used it to play and for school, after his death, I decided to buy everything new, up to the cabinet, a Cooler Master 351 and good here we’re …
Thank you for your kind words !
