I recently created a dual-boot on my Asus ROG STRIX Scar 15 w/ NVIDIA RTX 3080 GPU. I had some issues installing Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS, but finally got it to work, however, my GPU is not coming up when I look for it in Terminal.
Looking at the
ubuntu-drivers devices I get:
:~$ ubuntu-drivers devices == /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.1/0000:01:00.0 == modalias : pci:v000010DEd0000249Csv00001043sd00001602bc03sc00i00 vendor : NVIDIA Corporation driver : nvidia-driver-460 - third-party non-free recommended driver : nvidia-driver-460-server - distro non-free driver : nvidia-driver-465 - third-party non-free driver : xserver-xorg-video-nouveau - distro free builtin
I tried purging nvidia, reinstalling, rebooting, etc. but nothing seems to work. When I go into my Ubuntu settings the GPU that is shown is: llvmpipe (LLVM 11.0.0, 256 bits).
When I try
lspci | grep VGA I get:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation Device 249c (rev a1) 05:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Device 1638 (rev c5)
Additionally, when I try nvidia-smi I get "NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn't communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running."
When I try
nvidia-settings I get:
ERROR: NVIDIA driver is not loaded ERROR: Unable to load info from any available system (nvidia-settings:5634): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: 15:28:57.073: g_object_unref: assertion 'G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed ** Message: 15:28:57.075: PRIME: No offloading required. Abort ** Message: 15:28:57.075: PRIME: is it supported? no
When I type
prime-select query the only item is
nvidia (which used to show nothing but
I tried downloading from the nvidia site with the .run file, I tried autoinstall, I tried
prime-select intel then reboot then back to
prime select-nvidia, but nvidia-smi and nvidia-settings still fails.
When I try
sudo lshw -C video I get

which doesnt seem right to me?
My monitor will also not work in Linux, which also seems to have something to do with the GPU.
