My 2. Monitor is not working after the update yesterday

Hello.
After the Update yesterday and manual interception via pacman -Sy chaotic-keyring and 'garuda-update' which fixed the Problem, my Monitor didn't work anymore after a reboot.

I found this other Post where @ filo suggested reinstalling 'optimus-manager' and reboot which didn't work.

'Nvidia drivers install'

I don't know what I could try to solve the Monitor Problem so help would be very much appreciated :slight_smile: .

I can't open Nvidia settings via menu or via Terminal which gives me this error:

'nvidia-settings'

It looks like some people are having problems with 495.46 - but for other people it's working fine (and there doesn't seem to be any obvious pattern).

You could try downgrading all your nvidia packages (nvidia-dkms, nvidia-settings) to the previous 495.44 version to see if that helps.

Same here, only on a GeForce RTX 3050 Mobile.

Hello Jonathon,

Downgrading the nvidia-dkmsPackage via the downgrade command didn't work because it depends on the nvidia-utils Package.
Downgrading the Nvidia-Utils Package dint work either because it depends on nvidia-dkms.

I read, that the nvidia driver version is tied to the Kernel version that's why but I have no clue.

I ended up Timeshifting back before the Update with the Python thing and it's working again. I guess I have to wait for a patch and update then. Is there a way to exclude the nvidia drivers from an update so I can update the other packages maybe? IgnorePkg nvidia-dkms didn't did the trick.

What about downgrading them both rather than separately?

That's also a valid temporary workaround.

Partial upgrades are not a good idea. However, it doesn't make sense that the Python update is still creating issues - all packages should now be rebuilt.

I too used timeshif to get my second monitor working. I also followed the advice in this thread which suggested doing the upgrade, then reinstalling optimus-manager before rebooting. I did that but it didn't work for me.

That implies you have a different problem, unrelated to optimus-manager. Unless, of course, you reinstalled an old version?
