HP ProBook 470 G5

Yes the kernel driver in use is snd_hda_intel but for some reason I dont have sound.
Well I am going to figure it out tomorrow. Its late here!
I actually did not think it was possible to get archlabs going on this probook!! Really great!


To set mine up I used hda-jack-retask, but I have SUBWOOFER
I’d start here

Yes! Got sound now! Next step is to figure out which solution to use with dual graphic cards. At least 4-5 options to choose from. I wonder which works best?


Hi again!
Dual graphics configuration seems like a finding the needle to me! Having a time even to figure out which drivers to install! I guess Intel is no problem but for a NVIDIA Corporation GM108M [GeForce 930MX] (rev a2) card I have installed the latest nvidia driver from arch repo. It is nowhere to be found in system but it is installed!


You ve got some mystery laptop @womp ! lol

Wonder what s the output of this command from terminal, might give a clue:

inxi -G

I found this needle:


Does that help?

Thx @Head_on_a_Stick , never knew about this.

I actually wrote it in my first post :blush:

Yes itś a mystery-laptop!

womp@archlabs-probook ~]$ inxi -G
Device-1: Intel UHD Graphics 620 driver: i915 v: kernel
Device-2: NVIDIA GM108M [GeForce 930MX] driver: N/A
Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.4 driver: intel resolution: 1920x1080~60Hz
OpenGL: renderer: Mesa DRI Intel UHD Graphics 620 (Kabylake GT2)
v: 4.5 Mesa 18.3.4


Might as well go with the Nouveau driver as for your nVidia card as stated above & see what it s doing @womp

posted answer this command:
glxinfo | grep “OpenGL renderer”
xrandr --listproviders

If you want to use nvidia you should follow this page
for nouveau

I managed to install nvidia latest driver (dkms) but can not use nvidia it seems.
Followed the “Prime-guide” and X hangs and can not open any screen. Can use Intel though but it is a bit slow. xrandr shows that it is pretty slow.
I get a whole bunch of acpi-errors during boot.

[womp@archlabs-probook ~]$ xrandr --listproviders
Providers: number : 1
Provider 0: id: 0x48 cap: 0xb, Source Output, Sink Output, Sink Offload crtcs: 4 outputs: 5 associated providers: 0 name:Intel

[womp@archlabs-probook ~]$ lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation UHD Graphics 620 (rev )

PRIME only works with nouveau.

If you want to use the proprietary drivers then see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NVIDIA_Optimus#Using_nvidia

Either use nouveau, or use the proprietary nvidia, both are not possible.
I use the nouveau.

don@don-pc ~]$ DRI_PRIME=0 glxinfo | grep "OpenGL vendor string"
OpenGL vendor string: Intel Open Source Technology Center
[don@don-pc ~]$ DRI_PRIME=1 glxinfo | grep "OpenGL vendor string"
OpenGL vendor string: nouveau
[don@don-pc ~]$ 

If you want to learn more about the optimus nouveau, follow this link

If instead you want to use, the owners follow the links we posted @head

Hi Guys and thank you for support!!

I managed to get Bumblebee working. Not an ideal solution but itś working.
This HP ProBook I got for beeing elected to the board of an organization and it has only Win 10 on it. Win 10 is absolutely awful and I just had to install archlabs on it! Matter is solved.


Glad that you got it to work !
