Posted new version, with patch for building with 5.1+ kernel (thanks tk glitch). Please report any issues.

Also tried to update to 5.1.x kernel, had to downgrade to re-enable nvidia driver.

I'm new to arch so i might be wrong but is there a lib32 vulkan? i couldn't find any libvulkan in lib32

edit: guess i was wrong. i had to install manually lib32-vulkan-icd-loader. although i've never installed vulkan-icd-loader either. oh well d9vk seems to work now

I dunno why but my Antergos ARCH system can't see 415.22.05-1, it seems to think this is 415.22.01-1 still, kinda confused how that happens!

Driver was updated to version 415.18.04, which should fix the "GetThreadContext failed" error with Unity games. Please report any crashes or performance issues.

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"?
