@DDoSolitary Ok, probably it makes sense to have it on conflicts. I have added it. Thanks.

@dbermond It makes sense, but I still think it should at least conflict with nvidia-dkms in addition to nvidia, becase 1) On a system with nvidia-dkms already installed, installing nvidia-beta-dkms will fail because nvidia-utils-beta conflicts with nvidia-utils, but nvidia-utils is required by nvidia-dkms. I have to uninstall nvidia-dkms manually instead of simply pressing a "Y" on conflict, which is a bit inconvenient. 2) nvidia-beta-dkms and nvidia-dkms will in fact conflict if the latter is updated but the former is not.

@DDoSolitary And you can take a look at other -dkms packages of the official repositories. You'll see that almost all of them conflicts (when a conflict is applicable [when a base package is also available]) with the base package or with the base module, following the Wiki example (witch should be followed). nvidia-dkms and virtualbox-{guest,host}-dkms are the only ones that are different. This package follows the Wiki.

@dbermond It's just an example. You can take a look at the official extra/nvidia-dkms package, which doesn't conflicts with extra/nvidia.

I think it should conflicts with nvidia-dkms rather than nvidia

I'm getting the patch error with this new update.

==> Validating source files with sha256sums... ... Passed 110-nvidia-change-dkms-conf.patch ... FAILED 120-nvidia-linux-rt-gift.patch ... Passed ==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

I don't use any tools, I manually git clone and makepkg.

Ah yeah, I nuked my .cache folder. Now it works, thanks!
