• check graphics card driver | turn off takes a lot of time


    hey guys I just installed Antergos, until now everything is ok… but now I want to know if I have my nvidia drivers installed [I marked them on the installation, but I’m not sure if they are installed]

    further more the computer now takes too long to turn off when with ubuntu it would be almost instantaneous :P any idea how I can figure out this 2 issues, thanks!

  • ahh now that I had a bit more of time and research, I found the answer on how to check the drivers installed.

    for future reference, and maybe we should consider re-name the original post if possible.

    1st step get your card info:

    lspci | grep VGA
    

    Output:

    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Xeon E3-1200 v3/4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 06)
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GM206 [GeForce GTX 960] (rev a1)
    

    2nd get detailed information on the device using the id from the previous command in this case 01:00.0:

    sudo lspci -v -s 01:00.0
    

    Output:

    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GM206 [GeForce GTX 960] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

    see the Kernel driver in use entry on the bottom? :)

    in the end I even used this nvidia-smi to have more info output:
