[SOLVED]nvidia-open driver fails to work on Hyprland (wlroots)

my specs:
cpu: Amd Ryzen 7 3700x
Gpu: Nvidia GeForce 470 GT
Motherboard: MSI x570 MEG Unify
Drive: SK Hynix Gold 512GB ssd
RAM: 16GB Crucial ballistix 3600mHz

I know this is a very common issue, but I'm pretty sure my card will work.
I have followed the instructions here ( and also added nvidia nvidia_modeset nvidia_uvm nvidia_drm and nvidia_drm.modeset=1 to my /etc/default/grub and regenerated the config. When launching Hyprland through the wrapper the first time after boot, I get: "

Seat opened with backend 'logind' 
Successfully loaded libseat session
Found 1 GPUs
Initializing DRM backend for /dev/dri/card0 (nvidia-drm)
Found 4 DRM CRTCs
Found 12 DRM planes
Supported EGL client extensions: EGL_EXT_platform_base EGL_EXT_device_base EGL_EXT_device_enumeration EGL_EXT_device_query EGL_KHR_client_get_all_proc_addresses EGL_EXT_client_extensions EGL_KHR_debug EGL_KHR(screen cuts off here). And then it doesn't open and the prompt appears again with [SIGABRT] in front of it.

After that, every time I run it I get: "fish: Job 1, './.local/(username)/wrapperh1' terminated by signal SIGABRT (Abort)01), message: "eglInitialize"o create screen"yDevicesEXT: failed to allocate device list.form_xcb EGL_MESA_platform_surfacelesslient_extensions EGL_KHR_debug EGL_KHR(screen cuts off here)".

Any help is very appreciated, this is my first time posting an issue, so if you need any information I have not supplied, please ask for it. I am aware there may be no solution to this problem and it might just not work.

Your card and the driver you are required to use for it (... you'd need nvidia-390xx-{dkms,utils} from the AUR for that) are too old to support these developments. It should work if you opt for the open source nouveau though. You need to remove nvidia-{open,utils} regardless.

GBM support in the nvidia driver was only introduced with the 495 driver:
