I’m familiar with what driver version I’m running, and how to find them; this is a regular old desktop with no switchable graphics or the like:
[[email protected] ~]$ pacman -Q | grep nvidia lib32-nvidia-340xx-libgl 340.101-1 lib32-nvidia-340xx-utils 340.101-1 nvidia-340xx 340.101-4 nvidia-340xx-libgl 340.101-1 nvidia-340xx-utils 340.101-1
I was more asking if there is a recommended procedure for updating the drivers from the legacy set to the current that won’t leave me stumbling around in just a terminal if something goes wrong; something like Manjaro’s mhwd-gpu or Mint’s “proprietary drivers” tools.
Between the lack of results in searching on my own and the lack of responses here, I’m going to assume such a thing simply doesn’t exist for Antergos and forge ahead with some combination of what I can find here: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=207265 and my own intuition.
Thanks for the response, have a happy new year.
Long time Arch user, in fact this system used to be vanilla arch before a hard drive died on me.
I had a much older nvidia card when I installed my desktop with Antergos. Recently, I bought a newer card to help with driving three displays, but there are some quirks that I suspect might be due to still running the nvidia-340xx drivers that the old card was limited to.
Is there a recommended way to go about ripping out the 340xx series drivers and installing the current ones (375 now I believe)?
