I installed ALVR using yay by following a tutorial to get my oculus quest working. I did get it to install and work, but when I rebooted I was stuck at the Asus slashscreen. I can tty2 and when I try startx I get error messages. It says:
this server has a video driver ABI version of 25.2 that this driver does not officially support.
Fatal server error: no screens found (EE)
(EE) server terminated with error (1). Closing log file.
How can I fix this?
keep in mind that I am a linux toddler
Thanks in advance
Well I managed to fix the problem by following the recommendation in this thread: https://forum.manjaro.org/t/falied-to-start-light-display-manager-nvidia-340xx-drivers-related/91574
By editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf file or in my case /etc/X11/mhwd.d/nvidia.conf in this file we need to add this lines at the end:
sudo nano nvidia.conf
Option “IgnoreABI” “true”
Then everything was working again untill I updated my Nvidia drivers. I was getting a Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module error.
I fixed this by installing nvidia-dkms as was suggested in the thread below.
