I had a previous issue with my laptop (i7-12700H w/RTX3060) not picking up the drivers which was resolved by installing the liquorix kernel (which as far as I understood was 5.17.0-5 (a patch for 5.17.0)).
While this kernel did fix the driver problem it introduced some issues that I had to live with for quite some time, particularly the CPU speed apparently being capped at 2700MHz (that was the max listed speed when I did
lscpu | grep MHz), even though it should be 4700MHz as listed in Intel’s website. I also had other minor things such as keyboard backlight brightness keys not working.
Long story short today I updated my kernel to 5.17.7 via mainline. The keyboard backlight brightness keys now work and when I
lscpu | grep MHz the max MHz is correct. However, when I do
nvidia-smi the system no longer picks up the GPU driver. I tried booting up the liquorix kernel and it also doesn’t recognizes it (although gradients look normal, which they didn’t before I fixed it the first time).
What should I try?
