A friendly heads-up: after upgrading and rebooting my system, I experienced severe CPU usage resulting in the mouse stuttering, windows hanging, fonts rendering incorrectly or missing completely, etc. The computer was nigh unusable so I didn't even bother to try and debug the situation, I simply degraded via tty2 and that was that.

I don't know if this is the result of the beta nature of the driver itself, or an incompatibility with KDE (SDDM was eating most of that excessive CPU) or even an incompatibility of the new driver with my really old GPU (Nvidia 6xx series) or whatever else. What I do know though, is that the non-beta 415.18 driver works flawlessly, and so does the old 396.54.09.

So, along with the "GetThreadContext failed" thing, this seems like one more good reason to wait before upgrading to the new version.

PSA: Unity Games under DXVK using driver 415.18.02 are reportedly crashing with the error message "GetThreadContext failed". If this is an issue for you, I recommend staying on the old version until a patch is released. You can access the previous version using the following commands:

git clone
cd ./nvidia-vulkan
git reset ac92350fd8540d75a6d6a49373529a31ffcfd77f --hard

@everyone The driver is updated to the new branch. This includes a lot of PKGBUILD changes, please report any issues or missing features.

@ChrizVR You need to install either the regular or dkms version, not both. Try using an AUR helper like 'yay' or use makepkg without the -i flag.

@ChrizVR Could you post the output of "pacman -Qsq nvidia"?

i get the following error:

looking for conflicting packages... error: unresolvable package conflicts detected error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies) :: nvidia-vulkan and nvidia-vulkan-dkms are in conflict ==> WARNING: Failed to install built package(s).

anyone know why?

Yes, right now is fixed and working pretty fine. Thank you @jcstryker

Sorry, @Nocifer, I was confusing with the real maintainer, hehe.

Work like a charm. Thank you :)

@Nocifer Thanks for your help! I am going to include Tk-Glitch's patch for kernel 4.19 [0]. His patch is very similar to the two that you provided. Hopefully we get a new vulkan release based on the 410 branch soon.

@wyre Please try the new version. I am running the DKMS version without trouble so far, let me know if you run into issues.

@Nocifer Thank you for the patches. I also had success with them on 4.19 kernel, and so far everything is working perfectly.

Nocifer commented on 2018-11-14 15:25

@wyre what do you mean? Of course I applied the patches, that's how I managed to build the package, I just didn't provide the modified PKGBUILD and the two patch files because I wanted to wait for a response from @jcstryker first.

Also, what kind of error does your pacman return? In my case everything built smoothly and all the modules installed correctly, in fact right now I'm booted in a 4.19 system with the nvidia-vulkan modules active. The only problem is that these API changes aren't compatible with the LTS kernel (which I keep installed as a backup), but that's a minor thing. Could it be that you also have the LTS kernel installed, and these errors are produced by it?
