First, I’m very new to Linux, specifically Manjaro. I’ve been using Manjaro on my main PC now for about 5 months, so I still have a ton to learn.
GPU - GeForce GTX 1070
CPU - AMD Ryzen 7 2700X
This morning, I updated a bunch of programs through Pamac, restarted the PC, and was met with a black screen. I could access the Terminal through CTRL + Alt + F2, but there was no desktop. Everything was completely fine before I updated. I did some research and came across some instances of people having the same problem, it having to do with the NVIDIA drivers.
I read from some people that uninstalling the drivers and then reinstalling them could help, I tried to uninstall the Nvidia drivers through the terminal but nothing happened.
When I type in the command $ inxi -G, it says that my driver is N/A
I figured that I needed to install the drivers again. I found my way to the Manjaro wiki on how to install Nvidia drivers from the terminal, because beforehand, when I first built this PC, I used the GUI method.
When I type in the command $ sudo mhwd -a pci nonfree 0300, it says "Skipping already installed config ‘video-nvidia’ for device.
Also, I did try $ sudo mhwd -a pci free 0300, the same thing came up
I really don’t know where to go from here. I’ve been using my Manjaro PC for 5 months and have had zero problems up until this point, I really don’t understand what it was in that update that caused this to happen. I know that people say all the time that Nvidia and Linux don’t go well together due to the drivers and the Kernel, but idk, that’s just what people have told me and what I’ve heard from others. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.
