Thank you @parsal, but can you please explain how to fix this package? Thank you.

Thank you very much for maintaining this driver. Saved me!
I successfully installed it on Manjaro 20.2 kernel 5.10.2-2-Manjaro. However I think some minor changes could be very useful for everyone:
- On my linux, /usr/src folder is empty (no linux link to kernel headers) so I had to manually create that. I think replacing that with $(uname -r) would solve this issue.
- On my linux, extramodules is not actually in kernel headers folder but in a parent directory (both of them in /usr/lib/modules) and extramodules in kernel headers is symlink to it. After installation on "Cleaning Up" step, I got an error: "/usr/lib/modules/5.10.2-2-MANJARO/extramodules already exists (owned by linux 5.10)" (something like that) and I had to rename the symlink temporarily to be able to install and then copied the files back to the real extramodules folder and created symlink again.
I would change the files and give you a link if I had the technical knowledge.
Thanks again :)

i tried installing this on pamac but it failed and i had to reinstall my arch-based distro (now i,m using endeavour os).

i,m not saying this isn,t working but i,m having a problem installing it.

i maybe a newbie but i have no problem using the terminal if i know what i,m doing / a tutorial.

so can someone please make a step by step installation introduction ?

i,m using zen kernel 5.9 on endeavour os with lxqt DE.

This does not build on kernel 5.10.x, I have updated the PKGBUILD and added the required patch here:

@papakilo - Thanks for point me to the patch. Not out-of-date until 5.10.x goes into [core].

Works well to me on Kernel 5.9.12.

@MegaDeKay Yes, I'm on 1.20

# Xorg -version
X.Org X Server 1.20.9
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0
Build Operating System: Linux Arch Linux
Current Operating System: Linux cursedsun 5.9.9-arch1-1

What do you mean by something newer? According to Nvidia site with gts 250 I must stick with 340xx drivers.

@poluyan "Everything works fine" but are you still on xorg-server 1.20 or are you able to use something newer?

@wurbelgrumpff, I'm with GeForce GTS 250 and Xfce 4.14. Just updated with nvidia-340xx 340.108-12 and nvidia-340xx-utils 340.108-1 at linux-5.9.9 kernel. Everything works fine.

Sorry for asking, but I'm a little confused about the situation. So, NVidia told about incompatibility issue with 5.9.x but here is still a driver's patch for 5.9.x. I'm working on a Core2 Duo with an Asus EN210 (Geforce 210) with kernel 5.8.14 and Xfce 4.14 and driver nvidia-340xx-dkms 340.108-9 which is really doing fine. But now I don't know, if it works after upgrading on actual kernel and driver. Anyone who has made experiences with that? Thanks!
