Archlinux News: primus_vk>=1.3-1 update requires manual intervention

Recommended Posts

This is mainly for those who have a hybrid intel/nvidia GPU and use Bumblebee.

 

Quote

The primus_vk package prior to version 1.3-1 was missing some soname links. This has been fixed in 1.3-1 so the upgrade will need to overwrite the untracked soname links. If you get an error like:


primus_vk: /usr/lib/libnv_vulkan_wrapper.so.1 exists in filesystem primus_vk: /usr/lib/libprimus_vk.so.1 exists in filesystem

 

when updating, use:


pacman -Syu --overwrite=/usr/lib/libnv_vulkan_wrapper.so.1,/usr/lib/libprimus_vk.so.1
to perform the upgrade.

Me too. All of my laptops run intel video and the one that has hybrid graphics, I turn it on and use only nvidia.

Bumblebee is hard, one of the main source of help requests at MX and Debian forums along with wifi. If I ever get a laptop I will probably avoid Optimus graphics.
