I recently built a new PC recently, but I’m having issues with screen tearing. I notice it when scrolling on some websites and especially on YouTube videos. I tried installing the nvidia and nvidia-beta drivers from the Arch repo’s and the AUR, but both of those resulted in X booting to a blackscreen. I tried to trouble shoot this with the tips on the Arch Wiki under the Nvidia section, but I couldn’t get anything to work, so I’m wondering is the GTX isn’t well supported yet.
To my understanding, installing the Nvidia drivers over the default free drivers involves simply installing nvidia and nvidia-libgl, and then running nvidia-config on the next boot, however I can never get to that next boot because I get a blackscreen on X and cannot even get into an alternate terminal.
Am I missing something with the Nvidia installation? If not, is there anything I can do to improve the screen tearing with nouveau?
