Hi,

I would like to achieve a full installation of this new PC. This model I have supports Ubuntu 16.04 LTS but I am looking for a better distro (that is why Archlinux). In other distros I have been expirencing problems to install the drivers of the two graphic cards I have (Nvidia quadro p4000)

Does any one has successfully install Archlinux with this pc specs that could support me?


Thanks community!

jmbruges, Welcome to Arch Linux.  I took the liberty of adding code tags to your post so that I could read it.  Sorry I cannot provide any insight into Nvida cards.

Re: Help on installing Archlinux on Precision 3630 Tower

Your card is supported by the latest nvidia driver, see https://www.nvidia.com/Download/driverR … 8589/en-us .

Your system also seems to have an integrated intel GPU , making this a hybrid graphics system.

Read https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Hybrid_graphics , https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NVIDIA_Optimus and https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Bumblebee to get an idea of the possibilities.

Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them
