Yet another Bug: NVIDIA v495 Driver is spamming invalid dbus messages at a very high rate

This issue results in ~2GB journal logs per day. (in my case)

Bug Tracker: [BUG] NVIDIA v495.29.05 driver spamming dbus-enabled applications with invalid messages - Linux - NVIDIA Developer Forums

Workaround 1: Downgrade the Driver to v470
Workaround 2: According to people on the Bugtracker on the NVIDIA Forum: installing nvidia-fake-powerd (AUR) (don’t forget to start / enable the service with sudo systemctl enable nvidia-fake-powerd and sudo systemctl start nvidia-fake-powerd)

It’s a production machine, so I wasn’t able to afford upgrading and having to deal with potential issues for quite a while.

I haven’t tried the linked solution as the machine is up and running already. Thanks nonetheless :+1:, as this info in the back of the head might be useful sometime!
