nvidia-xrun is no longer working for nvidia-470xx-dkms, I'm getting a glitchy screen when I attempt to start Xorg using nvidia-xrun openbox in a new tty.

Ok, running nvidia-xrun i3 manually works! I don't think that's intended, tho.

@X_m7 I did what you suggested (created a .conf with the contents stated on the Optimus wiki - even if I don't use Optimus -, and other directories were already empty) and that led to some progress, now instead of crashing, nvidia-xrun startx, shows a half-second black-screen (like it was switching to X session), but then gets back to tty like it had nothing to do or where to show anything.

In case anyone ran into trouble with the latest Xorg update (which caused it to crash when nvidia-xrun is used) replacing the contents of the /etc/X11/nvidia-xorg.conf with the stuff suggested in for the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-nvidia-drm-outputclass.conf file might help. Deleting the contents of the /etc/X11/nvidia-xorg.conf.d folder might help too, although I didn't need to do that last bit.

Thanks to the folks over at the nvidia-xrun-git AUR package comments for that tip.

Agreed on replacing nvidia with NVIDIA-MODULE. You don't need to change anything with the kernel because that comes from bbswitch and you can just use bbswitch-dkms to get around that.

If you run the LTS kernel, it wants to force you to install the packages "nvidia", instead "nvidia-lts" and "kernel" instead "kernel-lts". Please fix it.

Could you replace 'nvidia' with 'NVIDIA-MODULE'? This way, it will work with 'nvidia-dkms' and other nvidia driver variants (lts, etc)

Problem while updating nvidia-dkms

error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)

:: installing nvidia-dkms (440.64-10) breaks dependency 'nvidia' required by nvidia-xrun
