I just bought msi gs40 6qe. This laptop has skylake core i7 6700hq (which means integrated graphic HD 530) and discrete GTX 970. I'm struggling to start xorg on archlinux.
I'm trying to run xorg withing
nvidia-libgl packages as it described on wiki with modesetting. I added those ~/.xinitrc:
xrandr --setprovideroutputsource modesetting NVIDIA-0 xrandr --auto
I also have the same xorg.conf as on wiki. But when I start xorg I get black screen.
[ 9.205720] nvidia-modeset: Loading NVIDIA Kernel Mode Setting Driver for UNIX platforms 358.16
Here'are my, xorg.log, and dmesg (those one with started sddm configured to plasma5 and
modesetting). I'm installing up to date archlinux with 4.2.5-1 kernel with this patch. (Thus I got rid of
this pci device is not a vga device message in kernel log.
Any kind of help is greatly appreciated. If you need any other configs or logs just tell me.
Well, starting X first and then setting provider from another tty changed everything. Now Screen goes totally black(no backlight), until I set provider from tty2. Here's listproviders, tty output and xorg.log At least I got something....
Here's xorg.log if I set modprovider in ~/.xinitrc and startx. Xorgs terminates with 0 right after start.
- Here's xorg.log with sddm and modeset in sddm/Xsetup - Screen goes black without backlight
