So sorry dude, for some reason, I never got any mail about your post! What distro are you on?

What's this about the "systemctl stop nvidia-persistenced.service" that I've just merged, what does it do?

Thing is, there is no such service in openSUSE so it's annoying to have it stop on that. I wouldn't want to axe it, I'm sure you put it there for a good reason! I'd just like to find a more distro agnostic way of achieving the same goal.

Hey, that's OK.  I'm on Ubuntu 20.04 and also Windows 10.  I wound up returning the eGPU and GPU because under Windows the performance was only a little better than my internal GPU, and I decided it wasn't worth the cost for the incremental increase.  Never did figure out how to make Ubuntu use it, it was seen, was working properly, but wasn't being used.  And every time I tried something to make it be used I wound up looking at a black screen, and had to reboot in console mode to fix it.  I think the fact that I have 2 external monitors plus the internal screen made things a lot harder.  Anyways, I decided to fool around with cloud-based solutions for now - less junk on my desk.

I actually wouldn't mind if you removed that line stopping the nvidia-persistanced.service. I added that line because the nvidia persistence daemon caused problems with the code I added. But reading more about it, it seems like it should only be used in a compute only setup without a gui. Since the whole point of gswitch is to setup the xorg.conf it's probably safe to say everyone's using a gui. You can read more about it here.

@edgibbs, Aha, I see, that's strange, because Ubuntu doesn't have a '/etc/X11/xorg.conf', nor any other distro that I know of any more, it's a very old school thing to have. Is it possible you put it there for some reason (trying to make the eGPU work) and forgot about it?

@nu_ninja, Haha, alrighty then! 🙂 Makes my work a lot easier and I agree with you that it felt misplaced. Awesome, I'll keep hacking and keep you posted!

Darn, I'll be working on my "datacenter" today but the new version is close to ready actually. I'm using the old, packaged version right now in openSUSE Tumbleweed and it works! I "just" have to test out your code and package it up. But since I now know how the packaging is done, that'll just be a matter of adding the updated file and triggering the build. Stay tuned!

I think that a script I found on here somewhere created it.  So I guess I should delete it since I no longer have an eGPU.

@edgibbs, Yes, it's safe to remove any leftover config files. Best wishes!
