When validation fails this is usually because nvidia silently updated a minor version link. The download link redirects to the new minor version. In this case I need to update the pkgver (e.g. 2021.1 -> 2021.1.1) and the checksum.

When this happens, please flag the package as out of date. Thank you.

The 2020.6 build is failing for me in pamac with the message:

==> Starting prepare()...
sed: can't read /var/tmp/pamac-build-neko-san/nsight-graphics/src/nsight-graphics/pkg/host/linux-desktop-nomad-x64/VK_LAYER_NV_nomad.sh: No such file or directory

Thank you for the package.

Would it be possible to change the dependency on the “nvidia” package to “NVIDIA-MODULE” so that it also works if one is using the “nvidia-dkms” package? Thank you in advance.

The desktop entry file could benefit from some additional fields like “Categories” or “Keywords”. I have been using some variant of the following for some time now; feel free to reuse (parts of) it if you would like.

Good catch, should be installing both layers now.

verification failed with the latest update did you run updpkgsums?

jeancf commented on 2019-09-18 07:36

Actually the error happens when using buildpkg. The package builds fine with makepkg and yay. So probably not an issue with the package.
