Hello Team, my current desktop has the NVIDIA graphics card. The system works fine with Nouveau drivers. I have been reading some threads wanted to see if I can get the nvidia drivers to work on this old machine.
@ricklinux Hi Rick, if you recall you helped me extensively to get the system running back in October with 340xx and I followed the same approach with new install but not working anymore. I followed the steps in the thread below as well but no luck. May be I missed something. So I reinstalled my old snapshot with timeshift as I couldn’t get past the reached target graphical interface screen…
what are the correct steps to get the nvidia 340xx drivers to install/work?
I am using Cinnamon DE and lighdm with slick-greeter.
Will report back shortly. I’ll install the drivers again.
I had to restore as I wasn’t able to get past the screen.
Thank you again!
currently it shows:
Nvidia VDPAU library
Database for the script to setup nvidia drivers in EndeavourOS
Script to setup nvidia drivers (dkms version) in EndeavourOS
I am about to remove the current 495 drivers and install 340xx-dkms
This is not dkms version so you probably can’t boot on the lts kernel as there is also an nvidia dkms version for lts. So since you have already gone ahead let it finish and see if it boot’s on the current kernel.
installation finished and getting the following message. I didn’t reboot yet. I suppose I will need to edit the grub files as before? using nvidia-drm.modeset=1 and regenrate grub file using grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg correct?
