Problem with nvidia GPU driver(nvidia GeForce GT 750M)

Still have unknown renderer :smiley: via inxi -Gazy

OpenGL: renderer: Mesa DRI Intel HD Graphics 4600 (HSW GT2)
v: 4.5 Mesa 21.1.5 compat-v: 3.0 direct render: Yes

I guess its because you are using hybrid, so the renderer is the Mesa DRI Intel HD…
Not sure though :man_shrugging:
I use only nvidia, no other stuff. That’s why mine shows nvidia.

But, again to why your Device 2 doesn’t show the driver :man_shrugging: .
I think it should show at least the v: and the driver could show something like hybrid or bumblebee
or whatever along those lines.

Yeah, thats weird, so i decided to search an answer here. Similar topics won’t help me :frowning:

Maybe i should read smth about how to switch between gpu devices…

Finally, nvidia-390xx-dkms is the solution, thanks. Now i got 390.** driver for GPU device #2 displaying via

inxi -G

All works fine as well. To change OpenGL renderer is enough to install optimus-manager from AUR and set nvidia using

optimus-manager --switch nvidia

One more time thanks !

No problem :slight_smile: . I’m glad you solved it.
Cheers… :beer:

Ok, here is the best solution for me.
Ive installed 470.* drivers via AUR and inxi -G displayed the same: device #2 driver: N/A.

BUT!
If you switch into nvidia via

optimus-manager --switch nvidia

All drivers will be displayed correctly. So maybe the default driver, which installs by:

mhwd -a pci nonfree 0300

would work too, who knows(in my case its nvidia-intel-hybrid…390xx-bumblebee, smth like that).
