Probably overkill, but
nouveau was blacklisted on both the kernel command line, and in
/etc/modprobe.d, nouveau was not installed either. I did reinstall Nvidia a few times as well lol.
lsmod | grep nouveau confirms it’s not loaded.
xorg.conf looks like this:
Section "Module" Load "modesetting" EndSection Section "Device" Identifier "nvidia" Driver "nvidia" BusID "1:0:0" Option "AllowEmptyInitialConfiguration" EndSection
I’ve also confirmed the bus id is identical with:
lspci | sed -ne'/NVIDIA/s/ .*$//p'
and I also have a startup in my
xrandr --setprovideroutputsource modesetting NVIDIA-0 xrandr --auto
I’m at a loss as to where this issue could be coming from.
I should also note that Nvidia drivers work absolutely fine on my regular workstation with an Nvidia 1070, my laptop has a hybrid graphics setup that’s most likely complicating the issue. Still strange though how it works fine in Arch, and Ubuntu for that matter with identical configurations.
EDIT: Probably should note that I’m not too concerned with the Nvidia issue as I’m able to boot multiple distros from my zpool, if people are really interested in helping me solve it I can create a new topic for it.
