• Problem with GTX 1080


    Hey,

    I remove the GTX from my system and installed antergos over the mainboard HDMI. All looks great!
    Now I want to install the driver.

    pacman -S nvidia
    pacman -S lib32-nvidia-utils
    

    /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-nvidia.conf

    Section "Device"
            Identifier "Nvidia Card"
            Driver "nvidia"
            VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation"
            Option "NoLogo" "true"
    EndSection
    

    Reboot and plug the GTX in.
    Now I end up with a grey/black screen and a mouse wich is possible to move.

    Do you have any ideas what i might have done wrong?

  • Able to change to TTY2?
    [Ctrl+Alt+F2]
    then you can take a look:

    dmesg | grep nvidia
    
    dmesg | grep nouveau
    

    Wiki say:

    pacman -Syy nvidia nvidia-utils nvidia-libgl
    # It will ask you if you want to handle a conflict..you should choose "Yes"
    systemctl isolate emergency.target
    modprobe -r nouveau
    pacman -Rccn xf86-video-nouveau
    modprobe -a nvidia
    depmod -a
    systemctl isolate graphical.target

    This solved my problem.
