Currently this does not work with the latest kernel - linux-5.12.15.arch1-1 so I downgraded my kernel back to linux-5.12.14.arch1-1 for now

Edit: I realise nvidia-beta-dkms is what my use case requires

Hey, what about this? In asus ROG g752 brightness not work with 465 and 470... With 460 every OK!

marcBarbier commented on 2021-06-23 18:18

here is a very simple diff to get 470 running

apply it with patch PKGBUILD -i XXX.patch

< pkgver=465.31
> pkgver=470.42.01

Yeah, your Manjaro's got a different kernel name.

If you are struggling to install this package on Manjaro, you probably need to install nvidia-beta-dkms.

Breaks screen tearing fixes (both forceCompositionPipeline and forceFullCompositionPipeline).

@RemoteAdmin Fixed this issue in the nvidia-utils-beta package.

nvidia-beta and nvidia-utils-beta both contain a LICENSE file at the same filepath. This leads to a conflict at installation. We either have to remove the LICENSE file from this package again or rename either the one from this or the utils one.

I would like to thank @Det for all his hardwork in maintaining the nvidia beta packages on the AUR during the past years.

You'll be missed in the Arch community. My best wishes in your journey.

I hope you can reconsider using Arch again :)

So. Guys. In June 2013, this one guy "Det" once took maintainership over this package. Within those 5 years both Nvidia and Arch have both come a long way, forming a lot of fun obstacles for me to tackle nights over. And Nvidia, it has been just one group of packages out of maaany many in times to come I've pressed "adopt" on over the years. Boy, I'm even a maintainer in the outstanding Wiki. But times change things, as does 5 years.

Fact is, I don't use Arch anymore, I maintain mostly what's left for fun and for "work" I guess. For taking over that responsibility and making that pledge to deliver to the very best of my timed capabilities.

But this is the day I forfeit that responsibility. When I move on and this thing stays behind. But worry not. Another talent will lead on.

For the fine times with this package.

For the fantastic memories with this distribution.

Thank you, and..

May Arch live forever.
