Hi, I have a laptop with a hybrid GPU configuration (Intel / NVIDIA). The dedicated card is Geforce M330. Nvidia no longer supports drivers for this card. I have patches NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-340.108-patched-kernel-5.17.run drivers installed. How do I switch between cards? If this is not possible, how to start a linux session on a dedicated card? I have Manjaro Xfce 21.3.2 installed. Thank you for your help. ;)

Sorry for the mistakes. I do not know English very well. :|

I found Optimus-Manager-qt to manage the hybrid GPU. Tried Install this program according to the link:



Unfortunately, after the reboot, I was greeted by a black screen. I am not an advanced linux user.

Does Optimus-manager-qt work with NVIDIA driver patches?
