OK, I honestly forgot that I included an example config file. Since I don't have the hardware for testing, and since I still don't have a sense from users that it is a requirement, I will leave it in the post_install and depend on the user's ability to read pacman's output and manually copy the example over.

Linux 5.4 just hit the core, patch much pl0x?

With that release, I think that it might also be a good idea to limit the maximum linux version supported by the package, as it seems that a new major kernel revision is much more likely to break it than not, and that'd provide some notice to the poor nightly updaters.

Per https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PKGBUILD#depends, it seems that it is possible like this:

makedepends=("nvidia-340xx-utils=${pkgver}" 'linux>=5.3.6' 'linux<5.4.0' 'linux-headers>=5.3.6' 'linux-headers<5.4.0')

Except, of course, for the version ought to support 5.4 the values will have to be different. :)

Thank You!

@leejnk - When linux-5.4 hits [core]... currently 5.3.x is in [core].

leejnk commented on 2019-11-26 10:22

Please add support for 5.4 kernel

I can't build this: "NVIDIA: calling KBUILD... make[1]: /usr/src/linux: No such file or directory. Stop. NVIDIA: left KBUILD. nvidia.ko failed to build! make: [Makefile:192: nvidia.ko] Error 1 ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build(). Aborting... " (I'm on kernel 5.3.11 by the way)

Guys - is anybody working on 340 compilation on 5.4 kernel?

graysky commented on 2019-10-13 11:14

I have a working PKGBUILD. I will push it once linux-5.3.6-1 comes out of [testing] due to the obvious incompatibility with previous versions.

@graysky Use dkms or rebuild the package every time you upgrade your kernel.
If you would like to bump pkgrel every time kernel updates, I can give you co-maintainer.

@JerryXiao - You'll need to modify this per kernel package changes.
