Nvidia GPU Not Working on Hybrid (AMD/NVIDIA) Setup

Hi all,

Wanted to get hybrid GPU setup to work. Followed the instructions here. Installation was successful, however, Nvidia GPU is not working (drivers aren’t loaded perhaps?).

Running commands with prime-run will return the following error:

$ prime-run glxgears
X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  152 (GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  3 (X_GLXCreateContext)
  Value in failed request:  0x0
  Serial number of failed request:  26
  Current serial number in output stream:  27

Running nvidia-settings with or without prime-run returns the following:

ERROR: NVIDIA driver is not loaded
ERROR: Unable to load info from any available system

Running nvidia-smi:

NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn't communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.

Help is appreciated, thanks!

Did you reboot ?

Yep, rebooted. Tried both drivers (with and without 470xx) and rebooted. Still doesn’t work.

Found the following things in journalctl. Possibly related?

journalctl output
$ journalctl -b
Jun 23 18:14:54 xxxxxx-15ach6h systemd-modules-load[343]: Failed to insert module 'nvidia': Exec format error
Jun 23 18:14:54 xxxxxx-15ach6h kernel: nvidia: version magic '5.17.15-1-MANJARO SMP preempt mod_unload ' should be '5.17.9-1-MANJARO SMP preempt mod_unload '

nvidia module is compiled for 5.17.15-1-MANJARO but you run kernel 5.17.9-1-MANJARO

Is there an kernel update available?

Confused as to why the version listed are different.

mhwd

$ mhwd-kernel -li
Currently running: 5.17.9-1-MANJARO (linux517)
The following kernels are installed in your system:
   * linux517

uname shows the same version as mhwd.

Manjaro Settings Manager lists running & installed kernel 5.17.15-1. This is the only linux517 available.

It it the same major “5” and minor “17” version, but not the same patch versions 9 <-> 15

As said, you run an older kernel and a pre-compiled nvidia module for a newer kernel. That doesn’t work. Update your system.

sudo pacman-mirrors --country All
sudo pacman-mirrors --fasttrack 5
sudo pacman -Syyuu

Don’t forget to reboot if the kernel or nvidia module has been updated.
