Hello, I'd recommend to you all using the nvidia-390xx-dkms package. If anyone here knows how to change the script in order for the package to recompile every time linux kernel gets updated, please let me know via email. Thank you.

@Artemis ok, I will take a look. I also run linux-ck-ivybridge, but I have the linux kernel installed too, firstly because if something goes wrong I have one backup kernel, and secondly for that matter. For now I'd just install linux and linux-headers if that is not a big problem. From june the 1st on, I will be having a lot more free time, and so I can try fix some problems with the package. Let me know if there is some other problem. Cheers!

I run linux-ck and the build fails because the PKGBUILD on lines 61 and 68 refers to /usr/src/linux which in my case needed to be changed to /usr/src/linux-ck-ivybridge. Can this be made so it works out of the box?

For anyone having trouble with installing the dkms module on linux-ck 5.6.12 or other linux kernel compiled with gcc 10, you can either install gcc 10 from testing, or compile it with your (presumably gcc 9) installed compiler.

That is, executing this command after updating:

sudo IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH=1 dkms install -m nvidia -v 390.132

Running on the Linux kernel you want to install the module to.

@iKevin that makes much more sense! Happy to hear that you figured it out. Have a nice day and tell me if you have any other problem!

Hi @forcegk

I figured it out. No space left on device!! Wow, I have to be more careful.

Hi @forcegk I get the same error with:

yay -S nvidia-390xx-dkms

I must have some other issue with my system. I will look more deeply into what might have gone wrong. Perhaps the package that does the "extraction" is messed up. I will get back to you and thanks for your help!!

@iKevin I don't know what you did, but I'd suggest installing nvidia-390xx-dkms. For that you could use AUR helper assistance (i.e. yay -S nvidia-390xx-dkms)

You could also do: git clone && cd nvidia-390xx && makepkg -s && sudo pacman -U nvidia-390xx-dkms-*.tar.xz

I suggest the usage of an AUR helper though. Cheers!

I need to update the driver today and I received this error message:

Uncompressing NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86_64 390.132 .. Extraction failed.

Any tips on tracking down the problem? I am sure I did something wrong but don't know where to start?

@chris56 If you use nvidia-390xx you need to run a "makepkg -i" every time after you've upgraded the kernel. If you use nvidia-390xx-dkms, it's enough if you "git clone && makepkg -i" the package when you get an (nonfatal) error during your system upgrade, that's usually with every major kernel update, e. g. 5.6 -> 5.7, as dkms will automatically try to recompile the kernel module.

Does this package need to be updated every time there is a kernel update, or does it just need to be recompiled? In other words, if there is a linux kernel update, do I need to wait until this package gets updated on AUR first and download the new sources before upgrading the kernel? Or can I go ahead and update linux, then do a makepkg -si on the existing downloaded package?
