I’m trying to update my NVIDIA driver. Currently, I have
video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-440xx-prime installed. I would like to install
video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-450xx-prime, so I typed the following command:
sudo mhwd -i pci video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-450xx-prime
But this just does this:
> Dependencies to install: video-modesetting
Proceed with installation? [Y/n]
After I type “Y”, mhwd just quits, with no further output whatsoever. The reason I want to install the newer driver is that when I try recording with OBS using the hardware encoding, it doesn’t work, and says I should install a newer driver.
So, does anyone know why this is happening?
This is a bug, please install
video-modesetting and try again.
How can I install video-modesetting? I can’t find it with
pacman -S video-modesetting or
yay -S video-modesetting
You need to install first video-modesettings
sudo mhwd -i pci video-modesettings
Ohh I see, I’ll try that, thank you
Well, it fixed that, but now I’m getting this error:
[j4cobgarby@j4cobgarby-desktop ~]$ sudo mhwd -i pci video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-450xx-prime
> Installing video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-450xx-prime...
Has lib32 support: true
Processing classid: 0300
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: removing nvidia-440xx-utils breaks dependency 'nvidia-utils' required by nvidia-prime
Error: pacman failed!
Error: script failed!
Should I uninstall the previous driver?
nvidia-prime (and other offending packages - not blindly!) and reinstall it after the 450xx driver has been installed.
