Nouveau-driver, no HDMI output

Hi EndeavourOS Forum,
just installed the latest greatest EndeavourOS on my old HP 8710w with the Nvidia FX 1600M. The native driver for the graphics card ( is no more supported, so the Nouveau driver is in use. Unfortunately I cannot bring my HDMI(-1) monitor to live

lspci -k | grep -A 2 -i “VGA”

xrandr --listmonitors
Monitors: 1
0: +*LVDS-1 1920/367x1200/230+0+0 LVDS-1

One of the things I tried was

xrandr --output HDMI-1 --auto
nothing happens, no switching no error

Any chances to get the HDMI monitor back to work?

Or is there a chance to get the “Nvidia 340.108” driver back into play? I came along with patch for kernel 6.5 . What are the steps to to build/apply this module?


Welcome to the :enos: forum!

Try dkms version for Nvidia 340.108.

yay -S nvidia-340xx-dkms

That did it!
Thanks a lot
