Reverted.

Similar to last major release:

patch: **** Can't open patch file ../linux-4.7.patch : No such file or directory

Once again commenting out the line in the PKGBUILD fixes it... which I ended up doing as after I applied the patch the module failed to compile on my 4.6 kernel (can provide logs if they help).

Anyway, issue with the PKGBUILD was bad pathing. Fixed it by adjusting lines 46-49:
45 sh ${_pkg}.run --extract-only
46 cd ${_pkg}
47 # patches here
48 patch -p1 --no-backup-if-mismatch -i ../linux-4.7.patch
49 cd kernel
50

Unfortunately it seems this patch breaks 4.6 compatibility so I ended up reverting back to just commenting out the patch line for now.

Fixed.

Today's version is failing pretty early on:

Uncompressing NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86_64 367.18........................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................
patch: **** Can't open patch file ../linux-4.6.patch : No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare().
Aborting...

As I'm still on 4.5, I just commented out the patch in the PKGBUILD and it builds and works fine now.

No.

Seems like it wants to install mesa libraries which end up conflicting when installing nvidia-utils-beta.

Thanks - I realized today I had forgotten to reply to this. Yeah, I just put it in modules-load.d. At least they are making progress in positive direction.

From the release notes : 'nvidia-modeset.ko does not provide any new user-visible functionality or interfaces to third party applications. However, in a later release, nvidia-modeset.ko will be used as a basis for the modesetting interface provided by the kernel's direct rendering manager (DRM).'

So as of now, putting it in the
initramfs would provide no actual use

Xaero252 commented on 2015-10-15 15:29

So is the new kernel module intended by loaded via modules-load.d or wrapped into the initramfs? I'll give it a go either way and I knew I was overlooking something obvious that's what I get for skimming patch notes.

I changed the PKGBUILD internals quite a lot, because the previous pushd/eval/popd (x2) thing was just a mess:
