Ok for Option
You have to install
nvidia-inst first then run
You may need sudo but not if you are logged in as root.
Edit: Yes sorry it may need to be run without root.
If it runs and gets back to desktop after a reboot then post
Installation done I reboot.
Still same problem
What problem? Are you not at the desktop? What did you do trying to blacklist? We need to remove the blacklisting you did.
Edit: If on black screen or not booting you need to get into a tty again and reverse the blacklisting. Need to know what you did?
Yep still on rebooting.
I will go in tty.
But not sure if I remember exactly what I did.
I tried many things to. Remove nouveau.
I. Will try some and let you know.
Why did you try to remove Nouveau? You just need to install nvidia drivers properly and because your card is older it only takes certain drivers … not the latest.
Did you blacklist it in the default grub command line or did you create a modprobe.d.conf file?
Finally I reinstalled the OS.
Btw, if I use that command
nvidi-inst -n I guess the last Nvidia driver will be installed, not the 390xx legacy?
nvidia-inst -n reverts it to nouveau open source driver. What you should do is run this test and post the output.
Important for older Nvidia GPUs!
nvidia-inst does not support installing (older) legacy drivers. This means certain older Nvidia GPUs should use either the
nouveau kernel driver or install the appropriate legacy driver from the AUR (with
Tip: you can still use command
nvidia-inst -t to find the needed commands, just be sure to change the package names according to the version (for example, change
$ nvidia-inst -t bash: nvidia-inst: command not found
If you reinstalled the OS you first have to install
nvidia-inst package before you can run any commands.
From a question on motherboard firmware installation to old nvidia drivers installation and then… re-install OS .
Now, how does randomly shutdown (edited title) connect to this topic?
