During a recent system update, I was having a problem with the installed
nvidia-utils-beta preventing the rest of the packages from updated. What I ended up doing was running
sudo pacman -Rdd nvidia-utils-beta, then replacing it with the normal
nvidia-utils. After this, I was able to run
sudo pacman -Syu perfectly fine.
However, I’m now having problems with my laptop’s dedicated GPU. Running
inxi -g gives me the following:
Device-1: Intel HD Graphics 530 driver: i915 v: kernel
Device-2: NVIDIA GM107M [GeForce GTX 960M] driver: nvidia v: 510.54
Device-3: Sunplus Innovation Integrated_Webcam_HD type: USB
Display: x11 server: X.Org v: 126.96.36.199 driver: X: loaded: intel
failed: nvidia gpu: i915 resolution: 1: 1920x1200~60Hz 2: 1920x1080~60Hz
OpenGL: renderer: Mesa Intel HD Graphics 530 (SKL GT2) v: 4.6 Mesa 21.3.7
And here are all nvidia-related packages I have installed:
Additionally, trying to run anything with the
prime-run prefix causes errors, but they vary between programs.
I’m not entirely sure how to go about fixing this. I’d like to avoid a full re-install, but am fine with that if need be, and my computer’s working perfectly fine other wise.
