I have been trying to install antergos on my notebook which has a nvidia gtx 950M along with intel integrated graphics, and it’s an Optimus card.
I had to use modprobe.blacklist=nouveau to boot to install the os without crashing.
I followed the bumblebee tutorial on the antergos wiki tutorial multiple times but it doesn’t boot after I install all the packages. I just get a flashing cursor for some seconds and then the fans start working at maximum and nothing happens. Without bumblebee It would boot and then crash at almost anything i opened.
I have also tried to use the nvidia-installer to make sure it wasn’t something I had done wrong, but the result is still the same.
One thing i noticed was that for some reason i did not have any nouveau drivers package installed on my first boot, and I installed the OS multiple times, i had xf86-video-mesa and another one, xf86-video-fbdev i think .
In my BIOS there’s no option to enable/disable anything related to the video cards. I wouldn’t mind using only the integrated graphics or the nvidia card if that was easier but It doesn’t look like that’s possible.
This is the tutorial I followed antergos[dot]com/wiki/hardware/bumblebee-for-nvidia-optimus/
Any help would be appreciated .
