Got a Dell xps laptop (nvidia card 960m - optimus with an integrated intel) on which I’ve done a dual boot installation of Windows 10 and Antergos.
Done it many times; if I selected “Install nvidia drivers”, Antergos wouldn’t boot, but Antergos using LTS kernels would.
Once I’ve realized that the nvidia drivers were the problem, I did an install without them, and could boot in Antergos without using the LTS fallback.
But now I’ve tried installing them following the instructions there: https://antergos.com/wiki/hardware/graphics/bumblebee-for-nvidia-optimus/
I know it worked for this guy (https://forum.antergos.com/topic/5067/nvidia-driver-installation), but not for me.
Before following the steps for Bublebee, the loading sequence ended on an unblinking cursor, without any possibility of accessing the tty.
After, I see the [OK] confirmations (which I didn’t before), and the sequence ends on a blinking cursor. Still unable to access the tty with ctrl+alt+f2.
I can log in console if I modify the grub config (with adding 3 as the runtime level).
I’m at a lost. Any idea where I should look to find a fix? Thanks.
(Pretty sure I got the first BIOS type, if it’s important. No mention of “display” anywhere in it.)
