• Driver Nvidia installation.


    Hi.
    With the new release of Antergos, the installation of the Nvidia drivers is changed.
    I can install these drivers I follow these steps ( I have quoted the new commands needed):
    pacman - R xf86-video-nouveau
    "pacman - R lib32-nouveau-dri"
    pacman -R nouveau-dri
    pacman -S linux-headers
    pacman -S nvidia nvidia-utils

    after the reboot:
    sudo nvidia-xconfig

    This allows me to install the drivers, but some software that need lib32, like Acroread,Sopcast and Veetle don’t install.

  • Sorry.
    wich is the right way to install the Nvidia drivers?
    thanks.

  • hi, albert:

    1- sudo pacman -Rs nouveau-dri xf86-video-nouveau  
      
    2- sudo pacman -S nvidia nvidia-utils
    

    Those who need to[b:o8hwc7ob] install 32-bit applications[/b:o8hwc7ob] should install lib32-nvidia-libgl, I assume that will active the pear repository mutilib these matters. If you do not already know:

    sudo nano /etc/pacman.conf
    

    Near the end of the line you seek regarding the [b:o8hwc7ob]multilib repository and uncomment[/b:o8hwc7ob], [b:o8hwc7ob][u:o8hwc7ob]does not[/u:o8hwc7ob][/b:o8hwc7ob] [b:o8hwc7ob]uncomment multilib-testing repository.[/b:o8hwc7ob]

    3- sudo pacman -R lib32-mesa-libgl  
      
    4- sudo pacman -S lib32-nvidia-libgl  
      
    5- sudo reboot
    
    6- \# nvidia-xconfig

  • hi,Hector. I thank you for your reply.
    I have tried without a new installation and your advices works.
    I will try tomorrow with the complete installation.
    However ,I have decommented two line( not only [multilib]) as below:
    [multilib]
    Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

    is correct?

  • Yes, it’s correct.

  • Hi,Hector.
    Trying with a new installation I had to change the order of your (and mine) commands, in this order:

    $ pacman -R xf86-video-nouveau
    $ pacman -R lib32-nouveau-dri
    $pacman -R nouveau-dri
    $pacman -S nvidia nvidia-utils

    $nano /etc/pacman.conf

    $pacman -R lib32-mesa-libgl
    $pacman -S lib32-nvidia-libgl
    $reboot

    $nvidia-xconfig

    Otherwise it does not work.( in my case,I mean.)

    Again, thank you very much.

  • Hi there,

    The issue I run into is that when I’m installing the nvidia drivers, even with --nodeps, pacman won’t allow me to complete the install without removing Mesa-libgl. On reboot, I get a blank screen. I did add multilib to pacman.conf. Any ideas on how to skip he dependency check and insure that both nvidia and Mesa-libgl play nice?

  • Hi,

    Try this:

    pacman -Rdds --noconfirm nouveau-dri xf86-video-nouveau mesa-libgl lib32-nouveau-dri lib32-mesa-libgl  
    pacman -S --noconfirm nvidia lib32-nvidia-libgl
    

    Cheers!

  • Hello!

    I’m a new Antergos user. My issue lies with the nvidia drivers. My GTX 660 wont get the proper drivers by this instructions (see above and earlier posts). Have a thread in the Google+ antergos forum but that one hasn’t helped me (unfortunately…).

    Anyway. I have just installed Antergos again. Fresh install ready to go!

    1. I use the Terminal and search for my drivers with the command sudo pacman -Ss nvidia.

    2. Locate the nvidia-304xx 304-121-5 in the list that comes up. This is the driver ([https://www.archlinux.org/packages/extra/x86_64/nvidia-304xx/][0]">[https://www.archlinux.org/packages/extr][1] … dia-304xx/) which was updated yesterday.

    3. Next I try to install the drivers by typing $ sudo pacman -S nvidia-304xx 304.121-5
    but get the message: error: target not found: 304.121-5

    Why do I get target not found?

  • Hi,

    The install command should be:

    sudo pacman -S nvidia-304xx
    

    Hope it helps

    Cheers!

  • It did not

    error: unresolvable package conflicts detected
    error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies)

  • I was able to fix this issue with these lines

    sudo pacman -R nouveau-dri xf86-video-nouveau lib32-nouveau-dri && sudo pacman -S nvidia-304xx nvidia-304xx-utils nvidia-304xx-libgl

  • Heyyo,

    Is anyone else having problems with 3.15 kernel and nVidia drivers 340.24??? I can’t seem to get X to load with nVidia drivers…

  • [url:j2wo0qgz]https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/41373[/url:j2wo0qgz]
    Either rebuild nVidia from ABS or wait for the new package currently in testing.

    Install the Arch Build System from root.
    # pacman -S abs

    Download the PKGBUILD from the nvidia package.
    # abs extra/nvidia

    It will download the files to your ABS Root specified in /etc/abs.conf

    cd into the directory.

    # makepkg makepkg --asroot -Si

    Wait for it to build and install.

    #pacman -U nvidia-340.24-1.src.tar.gz

  • Heyyo,

    Yeah turns out once I got home they rebuilt the package. Now the nVidia driver is 340.24-3 which is built against 3.15.7 which now works for me. That was pretty quick.
