inxi for Demon Machine in question.
So, I want to switch from the nvidia proprietary drivers to the free nou-whatever.
I can't remove the bloody things!
sudo mhwd -r pci video-nvidia

No, Pcaman, you are in fact not done.
So, I've tried varies things so far.
Searched the forums obviously and found several seemingly helpful threads.
Just two of the many. I've been trying to rip this driver out for about 30 minutes now.
- First thing I did was the normal
sudo mhwd -r pci video-nvidia, then installed the Free drivers.
- Installed other kernels, they keep installing the nvidia modules!
- I've removed kernels and the modules.
I can't remove this stupid thing.
- Tried booting into TTY and removing. Pfft.
pacman --force -S video-nvidia. I come back to
FAILED: Failed to load kernel modulesthen it sits trying to load TLP!? (I thought I uninstalled that stupid thing?)
I seem to be running both drivers at the same time? Huh?
Also, why can one not resize the mhwd window?
It's probably something stupid I'm missing. I feel dumb, help.
As always, thank you for your time, knowledge, and patience.
