I just built a gaming PC and installed sparkylinux on it. I cant change the resolution to anything beyond 1024x768. I figured that I probably am missing video drivers for my card: GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2070. I tried the nvidia-detect and it said that it couldnt find drivers that are compatible. Does this mean that I should ditch sparkylinux?
For gaming you will need NVIDIA Proprietary Driver. Here you will find basic information:
Thanks for your reply. The issue is that nvidia-detect is not giving me any information so I am not sure which driver I need.
Disclaimer. I have no access to device with NVIDIA GPU. My knowledge about subject is purely theoretical and might be incomplete.
Run this command to identify your GPU
lspci -nn | egrep -i "3d|display|vga"
And compere the result with list of supported devices here
Before you proceed with istalation make sure you have installed headers for your kernel in use and dkms package.
After successful instalation run nvidia-xconfig
