@RusWolf When the released beta version is the same as the released stable version (as they are currently), they must match versions, as there is not a way to be ahead of something not released.

@urbenlegend AUR helpers are not supported. Use makepkg.

Why is the package called nvidia-beta-dkms when 550.54.14 driver is the production branch of the drivers?

@dbermond I see a similar issue as @jackhodgkinson when I did an upgrade to 550.54.14 today. Maybe it's an issue with paru? If I do paru -Syud, the upgrade goes through fine.

@jackhodgkinson I do not see any issue in version dependency for nvidia-utils-beta. The versions are currently the same: both nvidia-beta-dkms and nvidia-utils-beta are at version 550.40.07 in the current time.

The package nvidia-beta-dkms depends on version =550.40.07 of nvidia-utils-beta, but the most recent version is 550.40.07-1.

EDIT: @dbermond My apologies. It was my first time installing a non-standard 'NVIDIA' driver and I was unaware that I would have to manually remove nvidia-utils and its dependencies.

@dbermond Well hot damn! I thought I was going to have to wait for Nvidia to fix this, but apparently not! Thanks for the quick fix! Can confirm everything works fine on 6.7.3 now.

@urbenlegend Should be fixed by now. Thanks for reporting.

DKMS compile seems to be unsuccessful with 6.7.3

Strange how this happened on a point release as this was working perfectly fine with 6.7.2. Downgrading works fine for now. Is this something that Nvidia just needs to patch with a new beta driver?

EDIT: Yes it is. https://forums.developer.nvidia.com/t/linux-6-7-3-545-29-06-550-40-07-error-modpost-gpl-incompatible-module-nvidia-ko-uses-gpl-only-symbol-rcu-read-lock/280908/22
