it works ok. nvidia-bfs & nvida-ck-stable uses the same method :p

Adopted.

After thinking about it and tinkering for a while, I found a better solution for avoiding conflict with other nvidia drivers than my previous suggestion. The blacklist file in the pkgbuild now has a kernel-specific (-lqx) file name. Modprobe doesn't care about duplicated blacklist entries, as evidenced by several other blacklist files in the folder that have duplicate entries. I tested it out and sure enough, both -arch and -lqx kernels work fine with their respective nvidia drivers + blacklists, duplicated or not.

Updated.

The official nvidia packages has that line as well. I'll change it if other people give me the same input. I can't do it for just one personal request.

Yes.. I know.. but _why_? The drivers don't _actually_ conflict with nvidia from [extra], just that single unnecessary (in the package file list anyway) blacklist line does. I would wager at least a large plurality of custom kernel users keep at least two kernels: their custom kernel and vanilla kernel26. This is especially likely considering none of the other custom kernel nvidia packages I've seen thus far conflict with [extra] like this one.

This is my second request that you please change this _community_ package to follow a more reasonable configuration. It doesn't even require extra maintenance on your part on your own system after the aforementioned 30-second pkgbuild change except for blacklisting the other drivers once manually and removing the nvidia drivers once manually, whereas everybody else with more than one kernel would need to manually intervene on *EVERY* update.. A small change would make things much easier for us and is of virtually non-existent trouble/effort for you as far as I can see..

I made a mistake on the md5sums. Fixed. Hopefully.

I use it so that at the end, it removes the nvidia driver and installs the nvidia-lqx package.

Wouldn't it be better to remove the nouveau blacklist echo in the pkgbuild and set it as a post-install message in nvidia-lqx.install so that you can remove 'nvidia' as a conflicting package?
