Re: nvidia-390xx AUR package discussion thread

Did you also add the modules to mkinitcpio?

lsinitcpio /boot/initramfs-linux-zen.img | grep -i nvidia

The nvidia driver is loaded, but the GPU is taken by the modsetting driver.
Since this is an optimus system, ensure that you read https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NVIDIA_Optimus and elaborate on your setup.
As the GPU isn't detected by any driver, also post the output of "lspci"

Re: nvidia-390xx AUR package discussion thread

Thanks Johnathon for all your work keeping this working.  I also have the hardware (NVS 4200M) and am willing to test, but I'm not sure how to do that.  If someone who knows how could give a high-level guide or point me in the direction of more info I would really appreciate it.  Currently the best I can do is reboot and see if lightdm fails to start.

Essentially, install the driver and use it. If it's a hybrid/Optimus setup then there's a link above. If it's a dedicated GPU then install and configure as normal.

Re: nvidia-390xx AUR package discussion thread

Thanks to a pointer from BlackIkeEagle I have added a patch for kernel 5.12 support (taken from https://build.opensuse.org/package/view … h?expand=1, credit for this one goes to Larry Finger): https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/ … ecb2e5f69b

If anyone wants to test with linux-mainline in advance of the 5.12 release then let me know how it goes!
