[SOLVED] NVIDIA drivers stopped loading

[SOLVED]: I needed the zen kernel headers and nvidia-dkms to properly install the drivers.

I have arch on my laptop, which has an amd IGPU and an nvidia gpu. However, after I thing running

pacman -Syu

they stopped working, and I don't know how to fix it.

nvidia-xconfig --query-gpu-info

tells me it's not able to query the gpu info, and nvidia-settings tells me that the driver isn't loaded

I'm using linux-zen 5.14.11.zen1.1 as the kernel, and driver version nvidia 470.74.7.

I've already tried to do another

pacman -Syu

but no result. The X server still works fine via the amd gpu.

Re: [SOLVED] NVIDIA drivers stopped loading

For the zen kernel you need to use nvidia-dkms and linux-zen-headers in any case, the nvidia package is only for the linux kernel package.
