So I had some issues updating nvidia drivers. Looks like I am not the only one with that as there are numerous threads with that topic. I couldn’t find anything fitting my exact problem though…
My current situation is as follows:
Kernel 5.9, but others seem to have the same problem(only tested 5.8 and 5.6rt yesterday I think)
GTX 1060 6GB gets picked up
System uses nouveau kernel despite system settings saying non-free 450 drivers are installed.
I light games like shell shock live I get unplayable fps for the whole system
Lutris says I do not have Vulkan support installed
when trying to reinstall the drivers I get the following error:
[andreas@frostfell-manjaro ~]$ sudo mhwd -f -i pci video-nvidia-450xx
[sudo] Passwort für andreas:
Has lib32 support: true
Processing classid: 0300
Processing classid: 0302
Fehler: Konnte den Vorgang nicht vorbereiten (Kann Abhängigkeiten nicht erfüllen)
:: Entfernen von nvidia-450xx-utils verletzt Abhängigkeit ‘nvidia-450xx-utils=450.66’, benötigt von linux56-rt-
Error: pacman failed!
Error: script failed!
Also trying to remove 5.6rt kernel results in the following:
removing linux56-rt-headers breaks dependency 'linux56-rt-headers' required by linux-rt-manjaro-headers
I already removed a bunch of stuff like cuda and did a lot of reinstalling a few weeks ago and feel like I will break a lot more if I try that again whithout guidance. I would be happy to provide more information if needed and am very sorry if a fix for this has already been provided on this forum.
Thanks in advance!
Also I am probably going with AMD for my next GPU…
