• Nvidia update == broken system


    Today’s update brought me an Nvidia driver update that rendered my system (almost) unusable… i only have access to the TTYs, and for my good luck they are configured to US keyboard (my keyboard is Portuguese).

    first i had access to the (modified) GDM login (is Antergos using a moded GDM or is it another login manager?).
    I could enter my password but i got an crash error.

    then i runned the command [command:2n7tbw7s]sudo nvidia-xconfig[/command:2n7tbw7s] , rebooted and now i don’t even have a login screen.

    Any suggestions in how can i fix this?
    Please help. this is currently my only working PC and i can’t stand ruindows!

    = update =
    And the Xorg log says that the Nvidia kernell module failed to initialize

  • Hi,

    For a quick and dirty fix you can switch to another VT (Ctrl + F2) and then downgrade your kernel[command:l8yqhx9f]sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/linux-3.16-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz[/command:l8yqhx9f]

    Let me know how it goes

    Best Regards,

  • nop… didn’t work…
    i tried linux-3.16.2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz and linux-3.16.1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

  • mmmmm
    did:
    [command:2wvt0o1s]pacman -S linux-headers nvidia nvidia-utils --noconfirm[/command:2wvt0o1s]
    reboot > no joy

    did:
    [command:2wvt0o1s]pacman -Syu[/command:2wvt0o1s]
    and…

    I didn’t follow this step in the nvidia wiki page ([http://wiki.antergos.com/tiki-index.php?page=nvidia][0]">[http://wiki.antergos.com/tiki-index.php?page=nvidia][1]):
    Setting up drivers for Kernel updates via Terminal
    is this the cause of my problem?
