Hey everyone! I’ve been happily using EndeavourOS for a few months and loving it! I’m brand new to this forum, though.
Yesterday I plugged in a new monitor to my laptop and it’s suddenly hella slow. The laptop is dual-boot and performs great with the same hardware running Windows.
Months ago I ran
nvidia-inst but I don’t think it’s having any effect:
$ glxinfo | grep -i "OpenGL Renderer" OpenGL renderer string: Mesa Intel(R) UHD Graphics 630 (CFL GT2)
I think this means it’s not using the Nvidia card.
Looking at the docs for
nvidia-inst I found a
--conf option to create a config file, so I ran again with that option. But then everything froze on boot. Reading a bit more I found the “ibt=off” kernel parameter, and added it, but no dice. Had to delete the config in the tty to get things to work again. Also tried with
--nouveau with the same results.
Any idea what I’m doing wrong? Was I on the right track with the
--conf option to
nvidia-inst? Am I right that the output of glxinfo means that my graphics card isn’t being used?
