Post by Rickyc81 » Tue Aug 07, 2018 8:49 pm

hi guys ... is there any procedures to install nvidia drivers (gtx1070)? I tried on arcolinuxB(xfce) or arcolinux, installing the site drivers or those from the package manager, and on reboot the lightdm is corrupted .. what can I do?
Thanks!
Ric

This is my installation sequence:
Arcolinux 692, clean install completed, update.
Pacman -S nvidia nvidia-settings
Reboot
Lightdm error and driver video not installed
( inxi -b driver gtx1070: N/A)

hi you need the correct driver for your hardware.
Example mine is Nvidia GT 740 and the working driver is nvidia-340xx.

No bro.. :(

There is something different now, before I touched anything .. Installed the driver from pacman and stop, it was updated by itself, now no longer ..

All already tried, now I'm on Manjaro, I had to install the Nvidia website driver, with its headers, but if an update arrives it will defeat and I have to reinstall the driver ...

Best thing is to keep nouveau drivers. They never let me down.
But that is maybe not possible?
