I’m new to this forum so I don’t how the things goes in here really but I will try to explain my problem as clear as possible and hopefully get some help with this =)
I recently installed 5.12.2-1-MANJARO and I have a problem with my gpus. I got a RX470 8gb and a GT710, really weird setup… I will try some gpu passthrough in the future just to escape from the Windows pyramid and still use my necessary software.
Until then… I noticed that the open-source drivers that Manjaro uses are… not great, possibly just for me. I had a pretty laggy experience using those drivers so I wanted to install the closed-source ones.
First, I managed to install the Nvidia driver but for some reason it didn’t want to run after reboot (in inxi -Gxx just said: driver: nouveau) so I uninstalled all of them and leaved the Nvidia one.
It finally ran and it works flawlessly, pretty good in comparison with nouveau. Great!.. ummm wait a second-_-
Second, my AMD card just stopped working…
I tried installing the amdgpu driver again, no luck.
What I wanted really to make is to use the amdgpupro driver, from what I saw that’s the closed-source one but aparently it doesn’t work like that, it needs to run on top of the amdgpu one or something like that… I’m confused
Reference: https:// wiki.archlinux. org/title/AMDGPU
“…driver called [AMDGPU PRO], which works on top of the open-source AMDGPU kernel driver.”
I tried uninstalling it again, installing it… done that said on the amdgpu page wiki… didn’t do anything… besides that now the monitor lights up but stays black
I don’t know how to actually manage drivers in linux, just to uninstall the old ones and hope that those new work=)
I also read something about configuring X Org but is just chinese language to me…
What sould I try? I’m just very confused… And have some family problems that make all of that worse…
Yesterday I just opened Manjaro, starred at the bash shell and just ran shutdown now so don’t judge me=) any little help would mean a lot!
I hope I didn’t just wrote a whole novel here=))

-X.org files??(not all of them, I think that the important ones):
-Right now I have installed(from pacman -Qe):
(might be more important stuff)
