Long time, dedicated user, new to the forums.
The short and sweet-
I have an optimus laptop (discrete+nvidia 1060), and my primary card is not supported by nouveau.
What I would like to do is simple - install Antergos without nouveau. I have tried installing and hand-picking out nouveau but not no avail (blacklisting, rebuilding initramfs, etc). I would like to knock out the installation of nvidia proprietary drivers during installation, can anyone provide me the definitive way to do this? I am very familiar with bumblebee as long as I am at a point where nvidia drivers are installed an nouveau is gone.
I have tried some guides to removing it post install but a lot are outdated/a lot of people just assume nouveau works now for everything. There used to be an option in cnchi to install but it does not seem to be there anymore. I have logged a bug in the bug tracker about this, but no response as of yet.
Thank you all in advance for your help!
