NVIDIA 435 driver looks exciting

Leaving this here, sounds exiting



If only Xorg 1.21 was coming anytime soon... :cry:

There must be an AUR for that lol
NVIDIA seems to provide their own (tested?) PPA for Ubuntu already.

May try it out once I receive my Razer laptop.

thanks for supplying directions to the next rabbit hole i'll be falling in to. looks like fun. :+1:


I can check with #canonical to see what is needed to get this going. No problem. Those are the needs.


Wow I am ready to try this anytime. Sounds like a good replacement of Bumbleweed. Let's prime it and get high[er numbers of fps].

If only there was a mechanism to swap x-server versions... :upside_down_face:

It might come even earlier.. :slight_smile:

Oh yeah, baby. At least finally 1st party support for proper hybrid graphics. It's a good thing, I'll wait.

Nvidia already have a patched Xorg package in a PPA.

Kind of depends whether we want to look after a patched Xorg 1.20 stack...

The guy has a PKGBUILD


Wait... Nvidia actually actively doing something for Linux? :exploding_head:

I mean, it's not all black and white?
They developed GLVND, HMM, and all those splendid contributions to Tegra.


We currently get in contact with Nvidia to elaborate.


@philm @jonathon Hi Guys :wink:

They freed up details for programmers about recent architectures (except lastest Turing - they want release it later).

I have to You big question/request: Manjaro will support via MHWD sript chaintool PRIME NATIVE after release proper packages/patches?

I back after long pause - Linux refixed ASUS issues (so far) :wink: Regards.

Well we even have now hardware manufacturers helping us out. So it should be no big deal to tackle this.


getting close... got the patched xorg and nvidia drivers installed, now to setup the the xorg configuration. right now all is good so far

I guess this Nvidia driver and Xorg patch does not have reverse prime for HDMI output, right?

I got the precise instructions from Nvidia and will post them after we had established all the needed parts.


I have been waiting for this so many years, finally laptop support will feel complete in Linux. I hope support for this will arrive soon, I will switch back to unstable to help test it once its available.
Hopefully situation with patched xorg will be figured out soon.
