Installing GPU drivers (CUDA) breaks system

CUDA or its dependencies are breaking my system upon reboot after installation. This requires a timeshift restoration and has been replicated to occur. This system is 2 days old.

  • The exact issue occurs at the 3 dots going dark grey after decrypting the drive.
  • Ctrl + f2 let’s me use timeshift or access the journals which were not of much use to me anyway.
  • Let me know what further can help…

Inxi below. But:

  • GTX 1070
$ sudo pacman -S cuda                                                                                                                         ✔

CUDA requires the proprietary NVIDIA driver. See Configure Graphics Cards - Manjaro
