Steam won't launch with chaotic-nvidia-dkms-tkg 460.27.04-2

Had a weird issue where steam randomly decided not to launch on that driver. I tried reinstalling steam, the driver rebooting. But it just didn't work. Launched steam through the terminal and the error was

SteamUpdateUI: An X Error occurred
X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)

installed nvidia and nvidia-dkms 455 and rebooted and it works. Maybe this will help someone facing the same issue.

I had it same issue if i want to play Xonotic with chaotic-nvidia-dkms-tkg, but i think it will be something wrong in the configuration. If i had chaotic-optimus-manager-tkg, everything works perfectly, better than stock nvidia drivers.

It could be issue with OpenGL, i found a lot of articles linked with this problem.

Remember modified nvidia-tkg drivers, not yet ready for daily use on Garuda. We have testing state, Garuda Team must spend some time with implementation
Just wait and use stock nvidia drivers.
If you want more information about tkg drivers, there is GitHub Frog comminity and my post around tkg drivers.
