Hello Clear Linux Community,
I’m a Linux newbie who’s been distro-hopping to find the perfect fit for my hardware, and Clear Linux has come out on top. It stands out in boot and shutdown times, I’m intrigued by its stateless design, and the fact that it’s a rolling distro meets my needs perfectly. However, I hit a stumbling block when I discovered that Clear Linux does not officially support NVIDIA’s proprietary graphics driver. As I am using a NVIDIA 40 series graphics card, this has posed a bit of a challenge.
To my relief, a fellow Clear Linux user, @marioroy , has a GitHub project that provides a way to install the NVIDIA proprietary graphics driver on Clear Linux. You can find the project here: GitHub - marioroy/nvidia-driver-on-clear-linux: NVIDIA driver installation on Clear Linux.
However, I was wondering if it’s possible to go a step further: could I create a Clear Linux ISO with the NVIDIA proprietary graphics driver already integrated? This would certainly streamline the installation process for me and potentially others who find themselves in a similar situation. Additionally, it could be useful to have the installer in this ISO install the proprietary graphics driver during the installation process itself, eliminating the need for manual installation post-setup.
Is this feasible, and if so, how might I go about it? I’m open to all suggestions and am grateful for any help you can provide. I understand I might have to use some additional scripts or modify some existing ones, but I’m willing to put in the work to make it happen.
Thanks in advance for your guidance!
