first sorry if this is repeated question. A while ago my endeavouros system broke. That was because the new nvidia 495 drivers don’t support my gpu. I wasn’t able to debug at that time so I jumped to another distro. I am now again using endeavouros. My GPU is NVIDIA GeForce GT 710.
On nvidia’s website it looks like 470 driver series are supported. This is what I did:
I followed this
$ sudo nvidia-installer-dkms --force
# Installs the latest 495 series drivers
$ sudo pacman -Rs nvidia-utils nvidia-dkms nvidia-settings lib32-nvidia-utils
$ yay -S nvidia-470xx-dkms
This seems to be working now. Please could someone confirm this is the right way to do it, means it won’t break after updates to kernel or driver.
As i say we do currently work on enhancing the script.
It is not needed to install the wrong drivers first… but while doing this the script will enable DRM modesetting for the driver, what is needed for Optimus systems to not boot into black screen.
