New NVIDIA drivers are not available in mhwd after update

Okay, I can confirm mhwd does not show Nvidia drivers up in linux-510 either.

there is not video-nvidia option to select.

I got the same problem after the big update. But i fixed it by uninstalling nvidia-prime,
nvidia-utils, and lib32-nvidia-utils, then install the driver back with mhwd
hope this helps

I’ve uninstalled nvidia-utils and its dependency linux510-nvidia. I rebooted and still mhwd -a pci nonfree 0300 does not install any nvidia drivers. Nvidia drivers aren’t listed in Manajaro Hardware Manager either.

Did you install the driver using mhwd in some specific way?

I removed nvidia-utils, rebooted, and still same issue. linux510-nvidia are not installed either

Manjaro [Stable Update] 2020-12-30 included new package linux-nvidia replacing linux-510-nvidia-455xx

https://gitlab.manjaro.org/-/snippets/570/raw

                     linux510-nvidia-455xx        455.45.01-1.1                    -

                     linux510-nvidia                   -          455.45.01-8

I suggest you check to see if you got the updated packages

pamac search -r linux510-nvidia

When I try:
mhwd -a pci nonfree 0300

the output I get is:

Skipping already installed config ‘video-linux’ for device: 0000:41:00.0 (0300:10de:1e04) Display controller nVidia Corporation TU102 [GeForce RTX 2080]

If I unistall video-linux and I run mhwd again, it just simply installs ‘video-linux’ again, regardless if I had specified ‘nonfree’

Yes, I can see the package linux510-nvidia. I’ve installed it before but I didn’t change anything.

I reinstalled this package again and I am struggling with the same problem. I will give more info about what is installed in my PC:

I installed opencl-nvidia manually.

What if you reinstall mhwd-nvidia ?

Nothing changed :disappointed:

I have also tried to reinstall that package. It didn’t solve anything.

And mhwd-db ?

bash: mhwd-db: command not found

No, I meant, reinstall it: :slight_smile:

sudo pacman -S mhwd-db

Voila. There we have it.

for some reason those files were missing:

warning: could not get file information for var/lib/mhwd/db/pci/graphic_drivers/hybrid-amd-nvidia-prime/MHWDCONFIG
warning: could not get file information for var/lib/mhwd/db/pci/graphic_drivers/hybrid-intel-nvidia-prime/MHWDCONFIG
warning: could not get file information for var/lib/mhwd/db/pci/graphic_drivers/nvidia/MHWDCONFIG

reinstall brought them back.

Thanks man

sudo pacman -S mhwd-db

it solved it for me as well. you are legend my friend.

It would be good to mark this post as solved and pinned somewhere, as other people might have the same issue. This problem happened to me after a fresh install which is uncommon.
