Tried to install AL today and thought it went well but when i installed nvidia drivers for my geforce 1060 all i got was an black screen with a blinking -. When i changed to another console and tried to startx i got the error No screens found, what am i doing wrong? The drivers works in ubuntu.
^ This usually indicates that kernel mode setting (KMS) needs to be disabled.
To do this, press “e” with the ArchLabs boot menu entry highlighted then add
nomodeset nouveau.modeset=0 to the end of the line that ends with “linux” (also add
i915.modeset=0 if you have a integrated Intel card)n then press <Ctrl>+x (at the same time) to boot the modified entry.
If this works, add the parameters to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX in /etc/default/grub and run
sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg to update the boot menu.
Is this a laptop or desktop?
If it’s a desktop then make sure you have the correct driver packages installed
sudo pacman -S lib32-libvdpau lib32-nvidia-utils libvdpau libxnvctrl nvidia nvidia-settings nvidia-utils
If all is well now run
sudo nvidia-xconfig this will create a default config
/etc/X11/xorg.conf after restarting xorg or rebooting you should be able to start xorg. Use
sudo nvidia-settings to further configure screen(s). For more info see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NVIDIA#Configuration
If this doesn’t solve the issue perhaps I missed something, for laptops these steps will not be the same.
Hello, and thanks for the replies!
Unfortuanely none of these solve my problem i still cant boot after installing nvidia driver.
What nvidia packages do you have installed?
pacman -Qssq nvidia
I would post from terminal output fron inxi -G , might help a bit, never know.
I installed the packages you said, is there a way i can save output from the terminal because now when i cant start x i dont know how to copy text from the terminal when i dont have any GUI.
These are the packages i have installed
is there some package here that could cause an problem?
Natemaia asked you @inkoqnito if it was either a laptop or a desktop , might help you in here fella.
Sorry it is an desktop.
@inkoqnito , thx , might help you in there mate.
See if removing
xf86-video-nouveau makes any difference.
