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!

Use this forum thread for discussion:

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.

@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.

For the ones interested in refining and testing the patch for upcoming linux 5.11:

based on the initial work: and then fiddled around to make it work for 390xx

its only tested as in, the module compiles and is loadable on 5.11.x

Recently, i've updated my system and noticed that 3d applications doesn't work anymore. The error is aways the same described bellow:

@iron_overheat Yes (GF117 for reference). I don't think a Xorg update could be responsible for screen tearing unless they break backward compatibility. Anyway, it's now working fine with the latest update and kernel 5.10.5, thanks!

CyrIng commented on 2021-01-07 19:59

I have some rare flashing since day one!

iron_overheat commented on 2021-01-07 19:58

@lqptjq I am having extreme tearing issues as well. But I've been having them since a X.Org version update I believe, so maybe that is the culprit? Are you also on a Optimus laptop?

Regardless, someone who knows their stuff should really look into V-Sync issues with this driver. Cheers!

lqptjq commented on 2021-01-06 14:02

I'm facing screen tearing issues since kernel upgrade 5.10. It used to work fine on 5.9 and my Xorg configuration / kernel parameters haven't changed since then. Does anyone have VSync working on latest kernel?
