I have a new Acer Nitro 5 Laptop and it has the internal video and a nvidia card:
# /sbin/lspci | grep -e VGA 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation TU117M (rev a1) 06:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Renoir (rev c6)
I install F32 KDE and my original plan was use the internal video for the desktop GUI, and only use the nvidia card for CUDA… (now, I’m willing to compromise). I follow the fusion guide for drivers install and as far as I can see, the driver and CUDA is working… Next, I plug a external monitor and, to get video on it I added the Option “PrimaryGPU” “yes” to the X11 nvidia.conf file (Can someone clarify me if the optimus things apply to me having an AMD not Intel chip?)
But, in this config, I get frequently freezes an crashes, like this one:
So… I try to disable the amdgpu driver using grub options… like this:
rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau,amdgpu modprobe.blacklist=nouveau modprobe.blacklist=amdgpu nvidia-drm.modeset=1 resume=/dev/mapper/fedora_localhost--live-swap00 rd.lvm.lv=fedora_localhost-live/root00 rd.lvm.lv=fedora_localhost-live/swap00 rhgb quiet
But then the laptop screen goes black… I get video on startup and shutdown, but nothing else. I cannot work without my second screen… what I can do ?
