optirun working fine.

This is issue or information for ignore?


[Testing Update] 2018-02-22 - MHWD, NVIDIA, Hybrid Graphic Setup
#2

nvidiafb is incompatible with nVidia’s driver. It’s merely one of a number of deprecated framebuffer drivers replaced by generic ones and KMS(ie, nouveau).


#3

Thanks for clarification. Have a nice day.


#4

One more: CAN I just blacklist nvidiafb IF is not used by NVIDIA GPU (but loaded in default)??


#5

Simply do and see what will happen. TTY is your friend :wink:


#6

Well…

[fademind@manjaro ~]$ cat /etc/modprobe.d/nvidiafb_blacklist.conf 
blacklist nvidiafb

Working like a charm :wink:

Boot fine.
