How to install & configure nvidia driver on arch linux

Godson's Blog - Fri, 11/13/2020 - 12:52

Nvidia is a graphics processing chip manufacturer that currently generates most of its revenue from the sales of graphics processing units (GPUs), which are used for competitive gaming, professional visualization, and cryptocurrency mining.

1. Install nvidia driver using pacman command

sudo pacman -S nvidia

Note: add pacman hook to compile module on kernel upgrades

/etc/pacman.d/hooks/nvidia.hook

[Trigger] Operation=Install Operation=Upgrade Operation=Remove Type=Package Target=nvidia Target=linux # Change the linux part above and in the Exec line if a different kernel is used [Action] Description=Update Nvidia module in initcpio Depends=mkinitcpio When=PostTransaction NeedsTargets Exec=/bin/sh -c 'while read -r trg; do case $trg in linux) exit 0; esac; done; /usr/bin/mkinitcpio -P'

2. Blacklist nouveau driver

sudo bash -c "echo blacklist nouveau > /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nvidia-nouveau.conf"

3. Add graphics card configuration in Xorg server

/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-nvidia.conf

Section "OutputClass" Identifier "intel" MatchDriver "i915" Driver "modesetting" EndSection Section "OutputClass" Identifier "nvidia" MatchDriver "nvidia-drm" Driver "nvidia" Option "AllowEmptyInitialConfiguration" Option "PrimaryGPU" "yes" ModulePath "/usr/lib/nvidia/xorg" ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules" EndSection

4. Load nvidia modules on boot – update firmware

/etc/mkinitcpio.conf

MODULES=(nvidia nvidia_modeset nvidia_uvm nvidia_drm)

sudo mkinitcpio -P linux

5. Finally, update ~/.xinitrc

use this command to list providers and update in xinitrc file

xrandr --listproviders

~/.xinitrc

xrandr --setprovideroutputsource modesetting NVIDIA-0 xrandr --auto exec i3 &>> "/var/log/i3.log"

Test the GPU processes now Using nvidia-smi

Using nvtop
