(4.14.5+) Because Arch itself has dropped i686 support, I have removed i686 from the PKGBUILD and there is no config file either.

If you don't want to compile this package yourself, I am providing the package on my repo [1].

The latest version (4.19.8-arch1-1-vfio) has build error due to patch:

drivers/pci/quirks.c:4617:28: error: ‘pci_acs_overrides’ undeclared here (not in a function); did you mean ‘pcie_acs_overrides’? { PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, pci_acs_overrides }, ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ pcie_acs_overrides

I have pushed something that the patches apply, but I haven't tested the package itself.

You shouldn't have any troubles using the patch in your sources for 4.19.8. Built and tested it myself with linux from the core repo. If you'd like, I can help keep this maintained.

archqemu: I try to keep up to date with regards to whatever version is in [core]. The problem is, on version releases (e.g. 4.14 -> 4.15), I often have to rewrite the patches (this isn't normally a problem on patch releases like 4.16.7 -> 4.16.8). Because I'm both a full time student and work full time as a software engineer, I am sometimes unable to set aside enough time to update the patches and I get to it when I can. The semester is almost over at the time of this comment, so I should be able to set aside time for sure then, if not sooner.

okay cool, thanks for your quick reply!

I was just curious if there is any systematic release schedule related to the kernel releases.

archqemu: When it's done.

archqemu commented on 2018-12-05 10:07

When can we expect an update of this package?

jmandawg commented on 2018-10-29 17:51

Awesome thanks markzz, I didn't know this, i'm still a bit of a noob (switched from debian) i'm going to try this for the next kernel update. Thanks again.

markzz commented on 2018-10-29 14:44

jmandawg: This is because when you boot this kernel without building the dkms module for it, it will of course not work. Because this is information any user of DKMS should know about, I don't see a reason to pin a comment about that.

I think this is something that you should read what the wiki states on DKMS because it actually lays out the steps to make sure the module is built for your kernel in use and does not require a reinstall of the nvidia-dkms package.
