• \[Solved\] nVidia Drivers and Test ISO


    After reinstalling Antergos earlier today from the latest test ISO (no other media exists), I attempted to install the nVidia driver. The Antergos wiki suggests…

    1. pacman -R xf86-video-nouveau nouveau-dri

    First problem, there is no nouveau-dri package. xf86-video-nouveau exists, but the second package does not.

    The next step was…

    2. NOTE! This step is only if you’re running 64bit skip it if you’re only running 32bit!!! pacman -R lib32-nouveau-dri

    I am running 64bit, so I ran the command but lib32-nouveau-dri doesn’t exist either.

    I don’t want to kill my install by only half carrying out the instructions.

    Could someone please advise me on how to progress?

    Out of curiosity, I also tried the final command…

    3. pacman -S linux-headers nvidia nvidia-utils --noconfirm

    … which is supposed to prevent the conflict between “lib32-mesa-libgl” and “lib32-nvidia-libgl” being an issue, but it came up as a warning anyway.

    Any ideas?

  • I have the same… striclty the same problem.

    I really don’t understand, because ( sorry for my poor english ) on the French wiki of archlinux there’s -> this “pacman -S nvidia nvidia-utils nvidia-libgl”

    that’s what I do, and I removed mesa-libgl !

  • Hi, I added a shell script for switching between the open and closed source drivers. I didnt have time to update the instructions for installing them manually but the script should work.

    Cheers!

  • Where is the shell script located?

  • It’s on the nvidia article in our wiki

    Cheers!

  • It still produces the same error. I copied nvidia_swap.sh to my desktop, made it executable, ran it, and still got the conflict warning.

    [name Desktop]$ sudo sh nvidia_swap.sh
    [sudo] password for name:

    :: nvidia-libgl and mesa-libgl are in conflict (libgl). Remove mesa-libgl? [y/N]

  • No worries, I removed mesa-libgl and everything seems to be working okay.

    Much obliged!
