[SOLVED] Nvidia 340.108 install?

Post by Christopher67 »

After install of ArcoLinuxb Xfce I updated, then proceeded to do a sudo pacman -S nvidia and it lists this

Package (4) New Version Net Change Download Size

extra/egl-wayland 1.1.4-2 0.06 MiB 0.02 MiB
extra/eglexternalplatform 1.1-1 0.02 MiB 0.01 MiB
extra/nvidia-utils 440.44-3 240.49 MiB 67.16 MiB
extra/nvidia 440.44-14 14.06 MiB 13.89 MiB

Total Download Size: 81.08 MiB
Total Installed Size: 254.62 MiB

:: Proceed with installation? [Y/n]

Which is the wrong driver, I need the 340.108

My video card is 03:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation G92 [GeForce 9800 GT] (rev a2)

So i went to Nvidia website to download the 340.108 driver(NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-340.108.run)

After i cd to my download folder, whats the proper command to install?

Thanks!
Chris

The nvidia website is possible but then pacman can not assist you to update and remove it lateron.

There are articles on arcolinux.com how to do that.

Much easier is to install nvidia 340 from AUR

Code: Select all

yay -S nvidia-340xx
yay -S nvidia-340xx-utils
yay -S nvidia-340xx-settings
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on https://www.youtube.com/erikdubois
then use the power of google
then use the power of our moderators.
