Nvidia packages but no nvidia hardware

Hi !
My Victus has no nvidia hardware but I see nvidia packages.
Is this normal ?

~]$ sudo inxi -G --gpu

/]$ pacman -Q | grep "nvidia"
mhwd-nvidia 515.76-1
mhwd-nvidia-390xx 390.154-2
mhwd-nvidia-470xx 470.141.03-3
nvidia-utils 515.76-1
opencl-nvidia 515.76-1

Yes, this is normal. Those are only modules belonging to mhwd.

Think of it this way: my system has no Bluetooth adapters, and yet I’ve got Bluetooth-related packages installed as well. I also don’t have a modem, and yet I also have the ModemManager package installed. :wink:


Those are not and can be removed on a system with no NVIDIA hardware.


Thank you for caring.
obviously this came from gpufetch (that I removed)
