Update nvidia to 450 drivers help

Im trying to install the new 450 drivers, but im having no luck.
In manjaro settings manager, it’s showing im using 440 drivers.

If i try to install 450 drivers i get.

Error: config ‘video-nvidia-450xx’ conflicts with config(s): video-nvidia-440xx

When I try to remove 440 drivers i get.

Removing video-nvidia-440xx…

Honestly, i’m really scared to mess with nvidia drivers lol Its so easy to break the OS. So i thought it best to ask you professionals :slight_smile:

You need to uninstall linux-latest linux-latest-nvidia-440 video-nvidia-440xx
Then reboot, then install video-nvidia-450xx

I just did a quick search for video-nvidia but I dont have it in pamac.

The drivers are installed by mhwd
sudo mhwd -r pci video-nvidia-440xx
Use -r to remove, -i to install
The packages linux-latest linux-latest-nvidia-440 with pacman
sudo pacman -R package

Ah ok, I understand now. Thank you.

you can try this command line from a previous post. Ignore the videomosetting line.

Thank you. Visones advice just did the trick for me. All was smooth. :slight_smile:
