Nvidia 340 driver install errors

hello everyone, I'm trying to install a 340 dkms nvidia driver on the latest kernel, but nvidia-xconfig throws an error "unable to locate/open X configuration file", but before that gnome started quite successfully in software rendering (I think). Device macbook air 2010 with gt 320M. What should i do?

Re: Nvidia 340 driver install errors

but nvidia-xconfig throws an error

Running nvidia-xconfig *is* an error. Don't do that and don't try to write a static server config otherwise.
The server has decent autodetection and unless you know what config you actually need to write, you'll just break things this way.

but before that gnome started quite successfully in software rendering

What does that have to do w/ nvidia-xconfig?

What should i do?

Forget about nvidia-xconfig and tell us what you *actually* want to achieve.

Re: Nvidia 340 driver install errors

"Use them."

If you encouter some problem, you need to be specific about that.
We're currently not even at the "does not works lol" level (ie. it's not even clear whether there's any problem whatsoever)

Re: Nvidia 340 driver install errors

If there were any issues during the installing of the 340 packages from AUR then the pacman command you used and its full output.  If there was no issue during package install and the issue is with X post the contents of Xorg.0.log and the system journal for that boot.

Re: Nvidia 340 driver install errors

You're not loading the nvidia drivers at all, what exactly did you install? The xorg stuff needs nvidia-340xx-utils. Also don't post camera pictures of text post actual text: http://wiki.archlinux.org/title/List_of … n_services

There's nothing to "try" - this will merely post some relevant information into a pastebin service and hand you a url to share.

Re: Nvidia 340 driver install errors

Seth, here is output for your command

(I've deleted driver before your command for install with patch, but after install nothing changed)

Re: Nvidia 340 driver install errors

You need to update your system and install linux-headers and nvidia-340xx-dkms in that order

Re: Nvidia 340 driver install errors

Reboot and recheck xorg.log/repost the commands requested by seth if you still encounter issues.

Re: Nvidia 340 driver install errors

You follow all the steps here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/NVIDIA#Installation

If you missed step 5, rebooting alone won't work.

Re: Nvidia 340 driver install errors

The older drivers need the IgnoreABI option in xorg.conf. Fortunately startx will tell you so. Of course this is AFTER everything else is correctly set up/installed.

Re: Nvidia 340 driver install errors

Thanks. Yes, IIRC this file is included in the package and just needs to be copied to the conf.d directory.
