My new Dell XPS15 7590 contains a dual graphics Intel + Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 setup.
The automatically installed
video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-418xx-bumblebee driver package sadly doesn't work for me. I've added my user to the bumblebee to be able to use the
optirun tool, but running
optirun glxgears doesn't show any gears but instead prints
[ 4739.068317] [ERROR]Cannot access secondary GPU - error: Could not enable discrete graphics card [ 4739.068411] [ERROR]Aborting because fallback start is disabled.
And gives this output in
[Jan10 17:36] nvidia-nvlink: Nvlink Core is being initialized, major device number 237 [ +0.000404] NVRM: The NVIDIA GPU 0000:01:00.0 NVRM: (PCI ID: 10de:1f91) installed in this system has NVRM: fallen off the bus and is not responding to commands. [ +0.000009] nvidia: probe of 0000:01:00.0 failed with error -1 [ +0.000011] NVRM: The NVIDIA probe routine failed for 1 device(s). [ +0.000000] NVRM: None of the NVIDIA devices were initialized. [ +0.000106] nvidia-nvlink: Unregistered the Nvlink Core, major device number 237
I've tried to replace the driver package with the newer version
video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-430xx-bumblebee and adding the
nouveau.modeset=0 kernel parameter but that didn't help.
I've found this guide on the arch wiki:
And tried to follow it, but it seems the out of the box bumblebee setup I get from Manjaro doesn't contain a few of the nvidia modules this script wants to use:
./gpucli --on mv: cannot stat '/etc/modprobe.d/disable-nvidia.conf': No such file or directory Turning the PCIe controller on to allow card rescan on Waiting 1 second Turning the card on on Loading module nvidia modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'nvidia': No such device Loading module nvidia_uvm modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'nvidia_uvm': No such device Loading module nvidia_modeset modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'nvidia_modeset': No such device Loading module nvidia_drm modeset=1 modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'nvidia_drm': No such device
How to go on? Can I use the GeForce GTX 1650? (on demand, I don't want it on all the time..)
