• Bumblebee / nvidia issue


    Hello everyone,

    I followed the guide for the bumblebee installation on the antergos wiki, however it seems it’s impossible to use my nvidia gpu.
    When running anything with optirun, the system halts. When I run the nvidia settings program, it says: no nvidia configuration file, even though there is a configuration file under /etc/bumblebee

    I also get some error during bootup, I am posting the relevant dmesg output here:

  • Have you tried the nvidia-installer?

    sudo pacman -S nvidia-installer
    

    If you want to see what the installer will do (without doing anything):
    sudo nvidia-installer -b -t

    If you think it’s ok, then run it again without the -t:
    sudo nvidia-installer -b

    Cheers!

    EDIT: If it does not work, please post here what sudo lspci -nn detects

  • same exact problem running this script, even went for a reinstall of the OS…
    The strange thing is that it used to work a week ago, but then I tried to install prime instead of bumblebee and decided to reinstall the OS after failing miserably, only this time the bumblebee installation isn’t working

    lspci returns the nvidia card

    I like arch linux so much, but we cannot have prime, why?

  • xrandr --listproviders
    

    will show both chips…

    ArchWiki said:
    using the PRIME functionality of the open-source nouveau driver, which allows GPU switching and powersaving but offers poor performance compared to the proprietary NVIDIA driver and may cause issues with sleep and hibernate.

    For performance Bumblebee should give the best option.

    [updates once a week] = [90% less problems]
