[Solved] RTX 2070 egpu setup on Acer swift 3 + ubuntu 18.04 + nvidia MX150 + Razer Core x + Nvidia RTX 2070
I am trying to setup a deep learning ubuntu workstation on my acer swift 3 laptop which has an inbuilt Nvidia MX150 gpu. I am trying to connect my RTX 2070 super to the ubuntu laptop through razer corex.
I can see the rtx 2070 in lspci command but nvidia-smi is always displaying only the internal mx150 gpu.
I used the egpu switcher package but was stuck in a looping log in screen.
Can anyone guide me how to connect my rtx 2070 to the ubuntu machine? I don't worry about the internal gpu.

I think this is a pcie bar resource issue (similar to error 12 in windows). If the command:
contains the error:
NVRM: BAR1 is 0M @ 0x0
