Hi, I tried installing the nvidia drivers after initially installing Manjaro Cinnamon with the free drivers.
I wanted to switch because I had some problems with display errors when I added a second monitor to my setup.
After installing I couldn’t boot anymore, I got stuck shortly after the boot process started with only an underscore on an otherwise black screen.
I have chrooted into my installation with a bootable stick, everything looks intact.
I am now trying to install with mhwd. Problem is, apparently it tries to install a non existant driver.
Short example of what i mean
[manjaro-cinnamon /]# mhwd -f -i pci video-nvidia > Installing video-nvidia... Using default Has lib32 support: true Sourcing /var/lib/mhwd/db/pci/graphic_drivers/nvidia/MHWDCONFIG Processing classid: 0300 Sourcing /var/lib/mhwd/scripts/include/0300 Processing classid: 0302 :: Synchronizing package databases... error: target not found: linux418-nvidia core is up to date extra is up to date community is up to date multilib is up to date Error: pacman failed!
I can’t find linux418-nvidia in pacman, but I can find linux419-nvidia.
I also tried installing the nvidia driver with the official driver from the Nvidia homepage, but it forces me to kill xserver, but I seem to cannot kill it in chroot, as my bootable stick always restarts it
