Please install the service to /usr/lib/systemd/system instead of /etc/systemd/system

Also, if you make it depend on NVIDIA-MODULE instead of nvidia, you will fix the issue reported by @MartinX3

If you run the LTS kernel, it wants to force you to install the packages "nvidia", instead "nvidia-lts" and "kernel" instead "kernel-lts". Please fix it.

For all those asking for 390xx support, you just have to clone and edit the PKGBUILD and change nvidia to nvidia-390xx on the depends array and then build the pakage the arch way.

Error while updating nvidia-dkms:

error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies) :: installing nvidia-dkms (440.64-10) breaks dependency 'nvidia' required by nvidia-xrun-git

Does nvidia-xrun-git not work with nvidia-390xx-dkms? Installing nvidia-xrun-git warns of replacing nvidia-390-dkms with nvidia-dkms. Is this intended?

The install script sounds cool. Either would work I guess. By the way the systemd service should be installed in /usr/lib/systemd/system.

I suggest adding some way of keeping user changes of configs. Currently if you make some changes (for example I need to adjust pci ids), then after removing a package and then reinstalling it, I need to make adjustments again. I am making changes in: etc/X11/nvidia-xorg.conf (just fix nvidia gpu pci id) etc/default/nvidia-xrun (fix nvidia gpu and pci bridge ids) I am not sure (at the time of writing this) if it is intended to edit them directly or specifying correct ids in some overriding file (at least there are such examples in project's Readme and in ArchWiki).

To keep user changes it is possible to use backup array in PKGBUILD. Or I can think about another way of solving a problem: adding an .install script to the package that will automatically detect nvidia pci id and pci bridge id and then change it after installation.

Any thoughts?

Can you please add nvidia-xrun-pm.service to the package?

install -Dm 644 nvidia-xrun-pm.service "$pkgdir/etc/systemd/system/nvidia-xrun-pm.service"

/usr/bin/nvidia-xrun sources /etc/default/nvidia-xrun. It should be included in PKGBUILD install -Dm 644 config/nvidia-xrun "$pkgdir/etc/default/nvidia-xrun"

Moreover in /usr/bin/nvidia-xrun for UNLOADING MODULES the command should be rmmod OR modprobe -r

echo "Unloading module ${module}" execute "sudo rmmod ${module}"
