@shoober420 Having depends specified at the package() function does not make any difference in the case of this package, since we are not building any binaries here, but just packaging source files. This will let the user to build the package without having the matching nvidia-utils-beta installed. Being such, a user can separately build all the needed packages and install them at once for convenience. Dependency will be enforced at install time.

Since there is only a single package here, shouldn’t the depends section be where it normally is, and not under the package section? Because it’s under package, there is no warning before building that the user cannot resolve “nvidia-utils-beta”. It should warn the user before executing makepkg that nvidia-utils-beta is required, not after the fact. I only see depends under the package section when there are multiple packages within the PKGBUILD, understandably.

@DDoSolitary Ok, probably it makes sense to have it on conflicts. I have added it. Thanks.

@dbermond It makes sense, but I still think it should at least conflict with nvidia-dkms in addition to nvidia, becase 1) On a system with nvidia-dkms already installed, installing nvidia-beta-dkms will fail because nvidia-utils-beta conflicts with nvidia-utils, but nvidia-utils is required by nvidia-dkms. I have to uninstall nvidia-dkms manually instead of simply pressing a "Y" on conflict, which is a bit inconvenient. 2) nvidia-beta-dkms and nvidia-dkms will in fact conflict if the latter is updated but the former is not.

@DDoSolitary And you can take a look at other -dkms packages of the official repositories. You'll see that almost all of them conflicts (when a conflict is applicable [when a base package is also available]) with the base package or with the base module, following the Wiki example (witch should be followed). nvidia-dkms and virtualbox-{guest,host}-dkms are the only ones that are different. This package follows the Wiki.

@dbermond It's just an example. You can take a look at the official extra/nvidia-dkms package, which doesn't conflicts with extra/nvidia.

I think it should conflicts with nvidia-dkms rather than nvidia

@wden Fixed.

I'm getting the patch error with this new update.

==> Validating source files with sha256sums... ... Passed 110-nvidia-change-dkms-conf.patch ... FAILED 120-nvidia-linux-rt-gift.patch ... Passed ==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

I don't use any tools, I manually git clone and makepkg.
