Hey @Askannz, stepping by to say thank you for your this project and for packaging it for the AUR.

I noticed you do provides=(); this should not be needed for the actual $pkgname / $pkgver according to the wiki. Seems you can omit that statement.

Anyways, great job ! Cheers !

@Askannz Thanks. BTW you could go the bumblebee route:

The official nvidia packages are, as listed in the dependencies of bumblebee:

nvidia - NVIDIA kernel driver
nvidia-340xx - NVIDIA kernel driver for even older devices
nvidia-390xx - NVIDIA kernel driver for old devices

Since AFAIK some form nvidia is required for this package.

@jpegxguy I changed the blacklist path and removed the nvidia dependency.

I though legacy packages like nvidia-390xx provided the virtual package nvidia, but it does not seem to be the case. Oh well.

I think the blacklist file optimus-manager.conf should go in /usr/lib/modprobe.d like other arch packages do it (e.g. nvidia)

The nvidia dependency lists packages that are a bit "off", to say the least. I use nvidia-390xx, and I had to edit the PKGBUILD.

The official nvidia packages are listed here:

Please add the 'git' package to your makedepends.

The packages manager "yay" (command: yay -Syu --devel) always see a commit and it tries to update it even if there is no commit.

It's probably a mistake in the PKGBUILD see here:

@ValHue @jpegxguy should be fixed in the new v0.4 release
