I’m a new user to Endeavour OS and my first taste of an Arch based system.
It has been a fun distro to get familiar with Arch but not without it’s learning curve I’m a newbie to linux but enjoying the discovery all the same.
My problem : - a video driver problem has occurred when booting into Endeavour, initially it was random now it’s continuous.
I have another Arch based system on the 2nd partion of the drive, Garuda , which has turned out to be very helpful .
This is in error mode when booting into EOS
[paul@endeavour ~]$ inxi -G
Device-1: NVIDIA GP106 [GeForce GTX 1060 6GB] driver: nvidia v: 455.45.01

OpenGL: renderer: llvmpipe (LLVM 11.0.0 256 bits) v: 4.5 Mesa 20.3.2
This is what should look like.

It appears to be loading ‘modesetting vesa’ driver instead of the nvidia driver.
There are no problems booting into Garuda, which is a similarly Arch based OS so it appears not to be a hardware problem.
I would appreciate any advice from the learn’ed forum members.
Thank you very much.
