I’ve recently got an Aero 15 laptop, which has Optimus graphics. The digital outputs (HDMI and DP) are wired to the 1060, the LCD is wired to the Intel chipset.
Under Ubuntu 18.04, PRIME works fine. In built LCD works, desktop is extended across the digital outputs when a monitor is plugged in. So far so good.
When I try to replicate the same setup in Arch linux, I can’t get it to work. I’ve got the nvidia drivers installed, and have enabled nvidia-drm.modeset=1 in grub. However, firing up X and then issuing:
xrandr --setprovideroutputsource modesetting NVIDIA-0 xrandr --auto
crashes the X server:
72.691] (EE) modeset(G0): failed to set mode: No space left on device [ 72.691] (EE) Fatal server error: [ 72.691] (EE) failed to create screen resources(EE)
The only reference to this message I can find on Google relates to Gentoo, where the X server is compiled without Glamor support. Glamor support is enabled in Arch, so it doesn’t seem like the same problem.
Anyone got any advice?
