• Why does settings show my graphics as Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 3.6, 256 bits)


    I actually have:
    $ lspci -v -s lspci | awk '/VGA/{print $1}'
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF108 [GeForce GT 730] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
    Subsystem: Micro-Star International Co., Ltd. [MSI] Device 8a9f
    Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 30
    Memory at f6000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16M]
    Memory at e8000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=128M]
    Memory at f0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=32M]
    I/O ports at e000 [size=128]
    [virtual] Expansion ROM at f7000000 [disabled] [size=512K]
    Capabilities: <access denied>
    Kernel driver in use: nvidia
    Kernel modules: nouveau, nvidia
    Googling shows lots of others having this issue but the only solution I saw (which I dont understand) was -
    “i resolved this by adding my user to the video group and restarting x it was just a permission problem
    eg
    usermod -a -G video sillyme” bbs.archlinux.org
    Ideas anyone?

  • Googling as much as i can to get to the bottom of this but going down the rabbit hole now & getting lost. Seems to be related to DRI2 and using KVM (I am not running in VM) which on boot mine says is disabled by bios.

    Anyone understand this stuff?

  • OK - solved this. Here for anyone else having this issue is what I did.

    Seems the problem was the new Nvidia 352.21 driver. I switched from Nouveau to it & had problems with my game playing VERY slow & laggy. I have just followed ArchWiki instructions:
    Order of install/deinstall for changing drivers
    Where the old driver is nvidiaO and the new driver is nvidiaN.

    remove nvidiaO
    install nvidia-libglN
    install nvidiaN
    install lib32-nvidia-libgl-N (if required)
    

    To change to the older Nvidia 340xx and now my game plays as it should AND setting show Graphics as - GeForce GT 730/PCIe/SSE2
