As the title says. My system’s nvidia graphics card driver stopped working after a recent update.
Until yesterday, the driver had no problems and both the driver and optimus-manager were working without problems. But today, after the system update
sudo pacman -Syu , which caused the linux-lts and linux-lts-headers update, both graphic driver and optimus-manager stopped working.
To install the operating system, I used the EndeavorOS with nvidia driver option, and then I downloaded and installed the nvidia 470.161.03 graphic card driver from the nvidia website.
As for optimus-manager, I followed this guide to install optimus-manager
I’ve been searching for a solution for the last 5 hour and got no luck. so here I am. It’ll be great if you could help me, cause at this moment the only solution that I can think of is to reinstall the OS and everything.
Output of nvidia-smi and etc.
$ nvidia-smi: NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn't communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.
$ nvidia-settings: ERROR: NVIDIA driver is not loaded ERROR: Unable to load info from any available system
