So is the new kernel module intended by loaded via modules-load.d or wrapped into the initramfs? I'll give it a go either way and I knew I was overlooking something obvious that's what I get for skimming patch notes.

I changed the PKGBUILD internals quite a lot, because the previous pushd/eval/popd (x2) thing was just a mess:

- old:
- new:

Thanks Det !

Should work now.

sanerb commented on 2015-10-15 03:38

lol, Det beat me to it. ;)

yeah, seeing some issues on my end too.

this likely is related to this in the changelog:

"Added a new kernel module, nvidia-modeset.ko. This new driver component works in conjunction with the nvidia.ko kernel module to program the display engine of the GPU." (

was getting some "FATAL: kernel module nvidia-modeset not found" or whatever the syntax is in the journal.

Seems like you didn't include the new nvidia-modeset.ko?

There appears to be an issue with EDID and metamode detection with this version of the nvidia drivers; I updated from the previous version of this package and had a non-working system; rolling back from these to those in the core repo has me up and running again but I typically run the beta drivers.

Relevant Xorg logs:

*Note: in the second paste I had manually defined my metamodes in my Xorg.conf for my second seat; this was an attempt to get things working on the current version of this package. This did not fix things.

@juston-li This update fixes the 4.3 compatibility issues as well, bumping up to <4.4 now

@anish, "Manage Co-Maintainers" in the "Package Actions" on the right. Third from bottom. I'd be _happy_ to add you in any of my packages you want.

@AnAkkk, yeeeah, but some don't, and makepkg alone surely doesn't, as opposed to just updating them in sync, separately.

E: Okay, even makepkg does with "--pkg <list>":
