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.

I use Manjaro Gnome, and the driver (not dkms) compiled and started at 5.12 as it was starting at 5.11 (there was no need for a patch for 5.12).

Greetings.

I have not tried this myself, but it seems some Ubuntu users are having success using graysky's patches that I assume are the same as those here.

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nvidia-graphics-drivers-340/+bug/1916640

That thread points to this link on editing xorg.conf https://launchpad.net/~kelebek333/+archive/ubuntu/nvidia-legacy

There also seems to be a patch ready to go for 5.12 http://rglinuxtech.com/?p=2896

Any brave folks want to give this a shot?

Confirming that none of the 5.11.x kernels work well for me with this driver on my machine (mid-2009 macbook pro with 9400M). I moved back to a 5.10 kernel (I had 5.10.16 handy) and that fixed my issue. To be clear, with this driver and a 5.11 kernel, I can start X11 just fine, however I'm having issues with libEGL. mpv can't play movies because a double free crash occurs:

free(): double free detected in tcache 2
Aborted (core dumped)

With this backtrace:

Doesn't work on 5.11 here too.

linux-5.11.14.arch1-1-x86_64 with nvidia-340xx 340.108-18 does not work for me (ga-p35-ds3, gtx260, sddm, plasma)

The driver works with kernel 5.11.13 on my ThinkPad T61p (gdm and plasma), not on my AMD desktop

susanne commented on 2021-04-13 08:18

"Anyone please can confirm are there troubles or not with this driver and linux 5.11.13.arch1-1" - yes, me, my Thinkpad R61 only works with this driver on lts-kernel

Today I have updated the system with pacman and I have Graphic mode again. I use XFCE and LXDM, now I can write the password and everything seems Ok, but when I open an application, window manager is not working and I don't have the windows controls.

I tried to execute xfwm4 or xfwm4 --replace but I get the error gtk-warning cannot open display:

With a ps xfwm4 process does not appear.

@tioguda you gave me such a great idea man!!

I completely disabled the DM, I changed the default target to multiuser.target (instead of graphical target) then configured a minimal .xinitrc to start properly the KDE and in the end I automatized startx to autostart after login and finally automatized login user with systemd.service!! Got rid off DMS for good!!

You Rule man! Keep it simple brothers!!
