Issues with gtx 1060 3GB [SOLVED]

I have used the proprietary graphics driver for some time but after updating a lot of things stopped working

When trying to start OBS i got

Re: Issues with gtx 1060 3GB [SOLVED]

uname -a
pacman -Qs 'nvidia|linux'

linux is at 5.12.15 but you're running 5.12.13 so chances are, you're booting an old kernel because you forgot to mount the boot partition during the update.
As a consequence the nvidia module isn't loaded and you're probably running on the vesa driver (check your xorg log)

Re: Issues with gtx 1060 3GB [SOLVED]

Please use code tags, https://bbs.archlinux.org/help.php#bbcode (edit your previous posts)

local/linux 5.13.1.arch1-1
    The Linux kernel and modules
local/linux-api-headers 5.12.3-1
    Kernel headers sanitized for use in userspace
local/linux-firmware 20210511.7685cf4-1
    Firmware files for Linux
local/linux-headers 5.13.1.arch1-1
    Headers and scripts for building modules for the Linux kernel

You've even the 5.13 kernel from testing installed but the problem remains the same:

Linux fractalic 5.12.13-arch1-2 #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri, 25 Jun 2021 22:56:51 +0000 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Old kernel. Because you forgot to mount the boot partition or you did mount it, but are indeed booting from the root partition.
Either way.

Edit:

lsblk -f
mount
cat /etc/fstab

Re: Issues with gtx 1060 3GB [SOLVED]

Not rebooting after a kernel update is a possible cause too, yes.

I have rebooted it many times, for some reason it didn't get fixed until now.

I did remove some amd driver packages (was for the previous GPU).

I also moved the old xorg.conf

Re: Issues with gtx 1060 3GB [SOLVED]

If you had rebooted before, why were installed and running kernel out of sync?

Please always remember to mark resolved threads by editing your initial posts subject - so others will know that there's no task left, but maybe a solution to find.
Thanks.

It was after i did a system update without rebooting.

I didn't expect a system update to fix it this time when it didn't help in the past.
