Nvidia P2000 installation

I recieved a new workstation which besides the Intel 630 is equipped with Nvidia Quadro P2000.

When I first booted the system I didn't have the time to install it properly so I removed it and used the Intel graphics.

Just this morning I decided to see if the fuzz on Nvidia has a merit.

The free driver don't work with this card - I got a bunch of errors on the monitors.

I rebooted using a ventoy USB and a Manjaro ISO.

Chrooted into the system and used mhwd to install the proprietary drivers.

mhwd -i pci video-nvidia-440xx

Rebooted the system - and what a pleasant surprise - it worked without hitches.

I had the trivial taskto adjust the location of the monitors by swapping the cables - and edit my polybar to display on the correct monitor.

I still have to see what happens on updates - but for now :+1:

I did not have any problems with NVIDA updates, once you configured it it stays as it was.
