BBQ Linux install drivers

Below approaches were tried to install the NVidia run driver in the Arch Linux.

Approach 1 :

The NVIDIA package includes an automatic configuration tool to create an Xorg server configuration file (xorg.conf) and can be run by:

# nvidia-xconfig

This command will auto-detect and create (or edit, if already present) the /etc/X11/xorg.conf configuration according to present hardware.

If there are instances of DRI, ensure they are commented out:

#    Load        "dri"

Double check your /etc/X11/xorg.conf to make sure your default depth, horizontal sync, vertical refresh, and resolutions are acceptable.

Installation using official repositories

pacman -S foobar

Installation using the custom repositories
makepkg -sri


Approach 2 :

Run the .run file provided by Nvidia.

Before that the X Server needs to be stopped.

systemctl start example.service

systemctl stop X

run the .run file

the restart the server X using systemctl start X
