Hello. I realize since a recent clear linux update, installing nvidia drivers for my rtx 2080 seems to not work… I’ve tried disabling the Nouveau drivers in terminal already but when i go to do the install of drivers i get this:
nvidia-installer log file ‘/var/log/nvidia-installer.log’
creation time: Fri Jun 5 12:03:44 2020
installer version: 440.82
nvidia-installer command line:
Using built-in stream user interface
-> Detected 8 CPUs online; setting concurrency level to 8.
WARNING: Unable to determine the default library path. The path /opt/nvidia/lib will be used, but this path was not detected in the ldconfig(8) cache, and no directory exists at this path, so it is likely that libraries installed there will not be found by the loader.
WARNING: Unable to determine the default X library path. The path /opt/nvidia/lib will be used, but this path was not detected in the ldconfig(8) cache, and no directory exists at this path, so it is likely that libraries installed there will not be found by the loader.

ERROR: The Nouveau kernel driver is currently in use by your system. This driver is incompatible with the NVIDIA driver, and must be disabled before proceeding. Please consult the NVIDIA driver README and your Linux distribution’s documentation for details on how to correctly disable the Nouveau kernel driver.
-> For some distributions, Nouveau can be disabled by adding a file in the modprobe configuration directory. Would you like nvidia-installer to attempt to create this modprobe file for you? (Answer: No)
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file ‘/var/log/nvidia-installer.log’ for details. You may find suggestions on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux driver download page at www.nvidia.com.
