I'm really confused on how to setup eGPU on linux, like what driver should i install? when should i install it? what should i do after i installed it? etc

Can someone tell/ link me a guide on how to do this? I would really appreciate it.

Not sure if this will be any of help but My laptop/gpu enclosure  are XPS 13 9370 + Razer Core X (gtx 1070)

Thanks

@sayid Which ISO did you download from System76 website? It’s best to download and install the Nvidia ISO as it contains drivers for Nvidia cards which can be use for dGPU host laptops or externally through Nvidia eGPU. Are you using an external monitor?

Are you trying to install with the egpu connected? If so unplug the egpu and wait until its fully installed before connecting it.

Okay, i just tried what you suggested, i can get to the installation screen and everything is going well until the installation itself then it said hardware error. I think it's because i use the nvidia installation. So i don't know what to do... I'll just stick to linux + igpu and windows + egpu for now.  Thanks for the suggestion btw.

@sayid Since your laptop is Intel iGPU only, I’d recommend Ubuntu 19.10 rather than POP!_OS. Give it a try and see if the installation and eGPU setup goes better.

It actually worked in ubuntu... Thanks

All I did was install latest proprietary nvidia driver and use egpu switcher from here

The thing is, switching to internal gpu still lets me use the egpu for some reason. Weird but it worked so it's all good.
