Gpu issues


I am a Debian user who is using Parrot os drivers support do to Debian main configuration being to complicated. My system ran perfect for a short while, but reverted to some strange driver related issues.

My system has a Nvidia rtx2060 and amd r7 igpu. My system runs fine, but it is not using the Nvidia gpu. Other strange things I am experiencing is that different Gnome desktop sessions are running different drivers. Gnome Wayland is running Nvidia with pcle drivers (see image 1 under images link) instead of Nvidia with amd renoir. Gnome xorg is a bit faster running on renoir drivers, however it has no Nvidia drivers.

The final strange thing is that I am unable to open the Nvidia xserver utility from Parot os to configure the Nvidia driver for different situations. I hope someone knows how I solve these issues, knows of any better software for my system or knows how to completely reinstall the drivers.

  • Parrot version in use (if you are not aware of it, open terminal and type cat /etc/os-release | grep VERSION):

  • Kernel version (if you are not aware of it, open terminal and type uname -r):

  • Logs/Terminal output (use pastebin or similar services):

  • Screenshots:

As Parrot and Ubuntu both are Debian-based distros, problems are often solved similarly . You may try this’s solution, may work: System not using Nvidia Graphics card despite driver being installed - Linux - NVIDIA Developer Forums
