@LuG42 said in (solved) nvidia driver lets system freeze:
Question this may be that the driver is not clear with Wayland and Xorg at the same time?
I’m not sure to interpret correctly the question.
Wayland may or may not work with proprietary nVidia drivers on single-GPU, non-hybrid nVidia cards. I.e., on computers with only one, nVidia GPU. I cannot verify it, because I don’t have such computers.
On the other hand, Wayland has absolutely no problem to work with proprietary nVidia drivers on double-GPU, hybrid nVidia cards - on Optimus cards. I.e., on computers with two GPUs - nVidia and Intel.
I tested Wayland with prop nVidia on three Optimus cards - GT 555M, GT 650M, GT 750M. Wayland with prop nVidia runs smoothly on all three. The results of the tests was many times posted in the forum. For example, here and here. There were no reports about an incorrect work of Wayland + prop nVidia on Optimus in the forum.
Wayland-nVidia works on Optimus.
I’m not speaking about prop nVidia installation here. It’s another question. Using official ISOs only and depending on the card’s type, the driver may be installed in several different ways:
- by Cnchi, for single, non-hybrid nVidia only, and not for Optimus
- by nvidia-installer, for both double- and single-GPU nVidia (Optimus and non-Optimus); nvidia-installer may fail on Optimus with BIOS-controlled graphic card
- by hand, as explained in Antergos Wiki, for Optimus only; it’s probably the only way to install on Optimus with BIOS-controlled graphic card.
