Stuck at Asus splashscreen after installing ALVR


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:

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

Section “ServerFlags”
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.
