Downgrade nvidia to 470

Hi,
i’m on majaro-gnome i installed nvidia drivers via mhwd is there anyway to downgrade to 470

Hi @bgyiregb12, and welcome!

I think it’s as easy as uninstalling the current one:

Identify which one you’re using by running:

mhwd --listinstalled

It’ll return the list of installed driver. For example, mine is:

$ mhwd --listinstalled

> Installed PCI configs:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NAME               VERSION          FREEDRIVER           TYPE
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
video-nvidia            2021.12.18               false            PCI


Warning: No installed USB configs!

Showing my current driver is video-nvidia. The next step is to remove it.

sudo mhwd --remove <driverToRemove>

Where <driverToRemove> is the driver you no longer want. video-nvidia In this case.

Followed by installing the desired one:

sudo mhwd --install video-nvidia-470xx

Hope this helps!

worked thanks
