Installed Elive on the beast last night and everything was going fine until I tried to open OBS and encountered this error: Failed to initialize video. Your GPU may not be supported, or your graphics drivers may need to be updated.
I couldn't get info about the graphics from hp (as they no longer support the device) but lspci reveals that it is an Intel Integrated Graphics Controller, but I don't know which one. I did not chose the NVidia options when I installed Elive and am left wondering what to do.
Are you sure it's an Nvidia graphics chip?

Also wondering if I should continue using the 965 shader drivers rather than the regular 965 drivers.
That's simply a graphics controller using the main CPU ..... generally supported quite well with the i915 kernel-driver. 3D availability is done by the Intel settings, if supported....So it might be down to the OBS settings looking for a GPU that isn't there (where the question arises: is this obs-studio from the repos or is it a flatpak?)
BTW, to get an nice readable overview of your machine use
"inxi- Frnz" command. It'll save a lot of searching in the sense of which hardware and/or drivers in use, divided into sensible sections.

Well device1 is your (internal)GPU and device2 your camera.
Device1 runs i915 as it should.
OBS works fine with i915 ......
So just run the "autoconfiguration-wizard" (it's in "tools") to have it do it right. (where you still haven't told us what OBS version you're using or how it installed)
Standard OBS installed with Elive
OBS won't even open; I just receive the error message.
Then, either use that "configuration-wizard" or else do a reconfiguration of the install with: "sudo dpkg --reconfigure obs-studio" and if that doesn't help:
a first a complete inunstall: "apr --purge obs-studio" and the re-install with "api obs-studio"
On a side-note:
Starting obs from a terminal with a simple "obs" will give a lot of info on what's going on.
