this script saved my bacon when the newest nvidia drivers broke my world. Kudos!

Add it yourself, lol?

Please add "--quiet" to the make command.

I found the cause. I was building on a partition that was mounted with noexec. When mounted with exec option the build went without issues and the executable was included in the package. Maybe it would be an idea to add a check to the build script for that.

rwd2, note that unfortunately this seems to be system specific as I cannot reproduce:

Thanks rwd2, it seems like the packaging issue here:

for script_ in ; do \

It's expecting a variable here to contain the executable names to install, but it's empty so it does nothing. I've opened an issue: https://github.com/archlinux-downgrade/downgrade/issues/220

rwd2 commented on 2023-10-17 12:29 (UTC)

Today I installed 11.3.0-1, but pacman -l shows the package is missing the executable. See build log and output of pacman -l here:

Yup, I've reported the Issue here. Please follow if you would like to know when it's fixed.

The x86-64-v3 level enables AVX, AVX2, BMI2, MOVBE, XSAVE, and other instructions found on Intel and AMD processors of the past several years. Its basically packages builds optimized for newer processors, instead of the generic one which is for compatibility. Using v3 builds could provide 5-10% percformance gain especially in kernels and dkms modules.
