I have adopted the 390xx packages to keep them secure. I do not run any 390xx hardware so will not notice any breakages and cannot test any changes.

Until such time as someone else steps up to maintain these packages - ideally someone who actually has 390xx hardware - I have to rely on you to tell me what changes are needed.

Don't expect a response if you post only "this doesn't work", and do not email me to complain about the package not working!

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.

That's correct, it's the same as how the nvidia package only works with the linux kernel.

There's very little point in having a "precompiled" package on the AUR as it needs to be recompiled for each kernel update. Therefore, unless you are compiling once for multiple machines use the DKMS package instead.

does not work with kernel 5.10

Confirmed nvidia-390xx-390.141-3 works with linux kernel 5.11.11-arch1-1 Thank you!

I installed linux-lts (kernel 5.10) after installing this driver, my graphical environment stopped starting. Linux kernel 5.11 installation helped how do i run this driver on kernel 5.10?

(sorry for my English)

What do you mean, add support for 5.10? This driver has worked with kernel 5.10 for months?

Kovalets commented on 2021-03-12 20:33

Friends, thanks for your work! Please add support for LTS kernel 5.10

@jonathon - Thanks for updating the PKGBUILD with the 5.11.patch. No surprises here, but I did re-compile nvidia-390xx-dkms 390.141-2 to ensure it would build correctly for everyone else running 5.11-x kernels - and indeed, it does!

Closing out the pahole issue, heftig has already added pahole as a dependency for linux-headers 5.11.1.arch1-1.

Thanks everyone for testing and confirmation. The pahole issue should only affect the testing branch, and heftig is looking to fix that prior to it reaching stable (

Great work done by @BlackIkeEagle / Ike Devolder in writing the linux-5.11.patch!

You may find it easier to use Ike's PKGBUILD:

I can confirm the patch builds without issue against the 5.11 linux and linux-zen kernels. No nvidia performance issues following reboot!

Thanks Ike!

Adding the linux-5.11.patch requires a new dependency: extra/pahole

Build log without pahole:

Adding this allows nvidia-390xx-dkms to build properly under linux-5.11.arch1-1.

Rebooted to test, works.
