I did this wrongly last time according to the EOS community the good advice I got that I quote above along with the install path I chose last time.
I wish to install and do this right this time, what to choose:
I have a “NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070” running on “nouveau” driver, how best to proceed?
Before someone says use EOS’s nvidia tooling, Iam on Arch now.
I have to install the nvidia drivers because Ile 1. be playing games an 2. I will be using Davinchi resolve.
If you are using the dkms version then you need the headers installed also for the kernel being used and also i would have base-devel
A lot has changed with nvidia drivers also. You can use nvidia_drm.modeset=1 as a kernel parameter in the default grub command line and then update grub. Sometimes ibt=off is also required as a kernel parameter.
Of course on EndeavourOS i do things differently now.
Hi, Thanks. @jonathon
How Exactly do I add the kernel parameter to grub? I have navigated to /etc/default/grub and nano’ed grub not much to the file but what exactly to add “nvidia_drm.modeset=1”. Do I append it to the end of the file and exit?
Then if I understand everyone I must update-grub ? sudo pacman -Syu grub??
You see the problem, Ive got to understand the process, if I get it wrong what happens and how to recover without wiping out the drive and going again. That I can do but it wont get me far. It’s what testers do install and reinstall and test. But this is the main computer daily driver. I have windblows but I had rather not thanks.
Last time I installed those drivers(nividia) there was a problem, I have yes me have to work out what it was and report back here.
Edit: just done
sudo pacman -S nvidia nvidia-utils nvidia-settings lib32-nvidia-libgl
I no error this time. Still to update grub.
