The build is failing for me with the following error:

==> Starting build()...
cat: /usr/lib/modules/extramodules-4.17-ARCH/version: No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

The file does indeed seem to be missing. Is there some package I'm missing, or is this due to a change in the kernel packages?

The regular nvidia-vulkan is packaged for the standard linux kernel in the main repos, while nvidia-vulkan-dkms is packaged for use with dkms and can be used with any kernel(standard, linux-lts, linux-hardened, etc.)

Feature-wise there is no difference, so when in doubt use the non-dkms version.

What is the difference between the two packages (dkms vs not)?

@DAVVVVE I am glad you got this working on your system

To properly handle the choice between nvidia-vulkan and nvidia-vulkan-dkms, I recommend using an AUR helper with proper split package support.

You are very welcome. I corrected the package to provide nvidia-utils and opencl-nvidia.

While testing, I was able to install cuda on my system. Let me know if you have any other issues.

It is structured as a package group, so this package will build the nvidia driver, utils, lib32-*, etc.

Most aur helpers will let you pick which components of the package group to install, which is where you would choose the main or dkms version of the driver, same process with a standard git clone and makepkg(though I suppose the -i flag would cause issues).

Some aur helpers will let you build the package but install only specific packages of the group e.g.:

'aur-helper -Syu nvidia-vulkan nvidia-vulkan-utils'

This would avoid the conflict between nvidia-vulkan and nvidia-vulkan-dkms.

If you or anyone else has an idea on how to structure this better I would welcome it. However right now it works well for the way I install aur packages (aurman).

Could the nvidia-vulkan-utils package provide nvidia-utils and opencl-nvidia-vulkan provide opencl-nvidia? It is needed for CUDA.

Thank you for your work on this package.

This package now conflicts with itself:

:: nvidia-vulkan and nvidia-vulkan-dkms are in conflict

Is it now a case of having to manually pick out the parts of the final completed build that you want installed?

@pshe94 nvidia-settings is now included in nvidia-vulkan-utils, let me know if you have any other issues

@apathy you are very welcome, glad the package is is working for you now
