Nvtop does not start after 20.2 Nibia updates


I tried to solve it on my own for a while but it seems I need some help. I don’t know what exactly caused this but reinstalling does not fix the issue. Here what I get when I try to run it:

nvtop: symbol lookup error: nvtop: undefined symbol: nvmlDeviceGetGraphicsRunningProcesses_v2

I use the driver version 440.100 with Manjaro bspwm.

nvtop requires the 455xx drivers and modules.

Weird, it was working fine until recently. I updated the driver to 455xx and it’s working again.

Though updating process was kinda painful. mhwd or Manjaro-Settings-Manager couldn’t remove 440xx because of dependencies. They also couldn’t install 455xx because of the conflict with 440xx. So I force uninstall 440xx, broke the system, had to login to tty to install 455xx with mhwd -i pci video-nvidia-455xx. I think everything works fine now.

Thanks for the replies.
