After banging my head for couple of days making it work with my HP Zbook (dual boot,win 10, Nvidia Prime), I switched to Antergos, and it works and looks great (after blacklisting nouveau).
My graphics details : (Nvidia recommends 375v for my graphics card)
Graphics: Card-1: Intel Skylake Integrated Graphics Card-2: NVIDIA GM107GLM [Quadro M2000M] Display Server: X.Org 1.18.4 drivers: fbdev (unloaded: vesa) FAILED: nouveau Resolution: [email protected] GLX Renderer: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 3.8, 256 bits) GLX Version: 3.0 Mesa 12.0.6
Now, without installing
nvidia and other libs, my connection to external monitor (4K) using VGA works fine but has very low resolution. When I try to connect via HDMI, it doesn’t detect. I am sure it is a nvidia problem, but as soon as I install nvidia drivers on my Antergos, it would not boot up after the boot screen (hangs up at black screen). Even if I then try to uninstall nvidia, it doesn’t works. This is my 4th fresh install of Antergos, please assist me in getting out of this Nvidia nightmare.
I installed nvidia drivers using
pacman -S nvidia nvidia-utils pacman -S nvidia-libgl
nvidia-xconfig , computer would stuck at black screen after booting.
Many thanks for the help.
