During the setup of my new laptop (hp g8 - rtxa2000) I’ve successfully installed Manjaro (i3 / Xorg) with proprietary drivers. Graphics card is recognized and nvidia drivers are loaded.
lsmod | grep nvid nvidia_uvm 2633728 0 nvidia_drm 73728 2 nvidia_modeset 1155072 3 nvidia_drm nvidia 39170048 114 nvidia_uvm,nvidia_modeset lspci -k | grep -i vga -A 4 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation TigerLake-H GT1 [UHD Graphics] (rev 01) DeviceName: Onboard IGD Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 8873 Kernel driver in use: i915 Kernel modules: i915 -- 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GA107GLM [RTX A2000 Mobile] (rev a1) Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 8873 Kernel driver in use: nvidia Kernel modules: nouveau, nvidia_drm, nvidia uname -a Linux x 5.15.41-1-MANJARO #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed May 18 09:20:01 UTC 2022 x86_64 GNU/Linux
On Arch, however, I can’t seem to get the system to work. I’m interested to learn about how Manjaro handles the drivers in this case, and to figure out the differences between the two systems.
nvidia-settings lets me know the driver version is 510.73.05. I’ve tried rolling back Arch’s nvidia driver to 510.x, as well as the related linux kernel. That didn’t work out, so perhaps there’s some additional configuration that I’m unaware of?
