I have a early 2017 Dell XPS 9560, with a fairly new Nvidia card, GTX 1050 Mobile.
I do NOT have
in the kernel parameters.
I installed the Nvidia propriety driver provided by the repo using the easy method here: https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:NVIDIA_drivers#Using_zypper. After a most recent
I installed/updated a bunch of Nvidia drivers and got the following output:
Modprobe blacklist files have been created at /etc/modprobe.d to prevent Nouveau from loading. This can be reverted by deleting /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-*.conf.
So I reboot my laptop and wanted to see if it’s working correctly:
# lspci -nnk | grep -A3 VGA 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller : Intel Corporation Device [8086:591b] (rev 04) Subsystem: Dell Device [1028:07be] Kernel driver in use: i915 Kernel modules: i915
Why do I only see Intel driver from the command above? Is it showing the card in use or all cards?
Then I did this:
# lspci -v | egrep "3D|VGA" -A20 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Device 591b (rev 04) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller]) Subsystem: Dell Device 07be Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 139 Memory at eb000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16] Memory at 80000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=256] I/O ports at f000 [size=64] [virtual] Expansion ROM at 000c0000 [disabled] [size=128] Capabilities:  Vendor Specific Information: Len=0c <?> Capabilities:  Express Root Complex Integrated Endpoint, MSI 00 Capabilities: [ac] MSI: Enable+ Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit- Capabilities: [d0] Power Management version 2 Capabilities:  Process Address Space ID (PASID) Capabilities:  Address Translation Service (ATS) Capabilities:  Page Request Interface (PRI) Kernel driver in use: i915 Kernel modules: i915 00:04.0 Signal processing controller: Intel Corporation Xeon E3-1200 v5/E3-1500 v5/6th Gen Core Processor Thermal Subsystem (rev 05) Subsystem: Dell Device 07be Flags: fast devsel, IRQ 16 Memory at ed120000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=32] -- 01:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation GP107M [GeForce GTX 1050 Mobile] (rev a1) Subsystem: Dell Device 07be Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 16 Memory at ec000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16] Memory at c0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=256] Memory at d0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=32] I/O ports at e000 [size=128] [virtual] Expansion ROM at ed000000 [disabled] [size=512] Capabilities:  Power Management version 3 Capabilities:  MSI: Enable- Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit+ Capabilities:  Express Endpoint, MSI 00 Capabilities:  Virtual Channel Capabilities:  Latency Tolerance Reporting Capabilities:  L1 PM Substates Capabilities:  Power Budgeting <?> Capabilities:  Advanced Error Reporting Capabilities:  Vendor Specific Information: ID=0001 Rev=1 Len=024 <?> Capabilities:  #19 Kernel driver in use: nvidia Kernel modules: nouveau, nvidia_drm, nvidia
From this I can see the correct driver is working for Nvidia. But when I went to Gnome control center -> Details I can only see my Intel graphic card.
So is the Nvidia card working correctly? Do I need bumblebee?
Please advise, thanks.[/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size]
