On a brand new Dell XPS 17 with Nvidia RTX3060 :
On a fresh install of linux Mint 20.2 (Cinnamon running kernel 5.4.0-74) followed by apt-get install update and upgrade I am welcomed by a “no hardware acceleration message”. Incidentally the sound output is a dummy one (I guess the HDMI module might have a connexion to my graphics problem??).
I installed the nvidia 470.63.01 driver and rebooted to a black screen.
I deactivated the secure boot in the BIOS and tried the two different fast boot options (minimal and thorough), without improvement.
TTY was accessible, I ran the bug reporter (see attach).
Could anyone tell me if OPTIMUS cards are at all supported on linux and if experience with this particular machine (Dell XPS 17) is available.
Any help appreciated.
