• Antergos not launching X server ( Watchdog stuck on #7 CPU )


    I am using Antergos on every PC I have but I bought new one and can not boot…

    Besides error in title is says nouveau: chipset not supported.

    Also a lot of msieport messages from kernel (but can be ignored by appending pci=nomsi to kernel cmd line)

    I tried nomodeset setting but no help.

    Can you try to help me get Antergos working on myy notebook?

    2.8GHz Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor
    Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 2GB graphics
    16GB 2,400MHz DDR4 memory

    I am not a completely newbie in Linux so if you want to something know just fire at me!

    Thank you for helping me.

  • @howp
    Blacklist nouveau.

  • Woop my bad, I just tried turning off modeset. Thanks.

  • @howp and install Nvidia drivers

  • sudo pacman -S nvidia-Installer
    sudo nvidia-Installer -f
  • @joekamprad nvidia-installer make my system freeze. Since the logs are in ramdisk I can not get them because only way to shut it is holding powerbutton.

    Using Antergos with KDE

  • Very well this is weird :D I looked at sources of nvidia-installer and its calling lspci, which is freezing my system…


    It appears to be known bug.

  • I solved it (ot was caused again by nouveau even tho the system booted fine), but once the nvidia-installer finishes installation the Linux wont boot, Xserver could not be launched.

  • If it is a notebook I would check if it is an dualgraphics one, with Intel+Nvidia.


  • It is notebook, but still same problem after installing bumblebee :/

  • do you check the options onto graphics inside Bios? do you check

    lspci -vnn | grep '\''[030[02]]' 


  • Of course, I have no option regarding graphic in BIOS.

    And the output from the lspci was basically same as :

    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0a16] (rev 09) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])


    01:00.0 3D controller [0302]: NVIDIA Corporation GK107M [GeForce GT 750M] [10de:0fe4] (rev ff) (prog-if ff)

    but the dedicated graphic did not have prog-if option

  • I think that only way for me is to force Linux to use just dedicated graphic with official nvidia drivers :/

    Bumblebee no commit for a yearm there is no way then to support new graphic like GTX 1050Ti with combination with Kaby Lake GPU :/
