@milkii You need to install all related packages at the same time.

:: installing nvidia-utils-beta (525.78.01-1) breaks dependency 'nvidia-utils-beta=525.60.11' required by nvidia-beta-dkms

edit: ah i see they've all gone up to .78, i'll go back to the regular package. hopefully the horiffic external monitor bug(s) are fixed now..

525.53 causes me (I presume) some big issues with cursor state: the cursor is either not visible at all (which happens especially under GNOME 43.1 after some time) or the image is stuck in one state (arrow [the usual state] or hand [to drag something] or I [text selector]) across all apps. It is always in arrow state when I move the cursor over the Waybar panel, but it changes to the previous stacked state when moved over a (Wayland) window. The cursor state works in alacritty, portmaster-bin, slack-electron, electron-mail, telegram-deskop. It does not work in mailspring, firefox-nightly (heftig repo), sublime-text, Discord (flatpak: com.discordapp.Discord), todoist-appimage.

As for the glitches, 525.53 solves most of my glitches exept for one: electro-mail which is an Electron app, however, I have run it under XWayland before upgrading to 525.53, and after I upgraded to 525.53 I run it with --ozone-platform=wayland --enable-features=UseOzonePlatform --enable-features=WaylandWindowDecorations (thus in Wayland). That said, even glitches in electron-mail are mostly removed, however, when I launch electron-mail, I get mostly grey (only the divider between the message list and the reading pane is visible) until I move the cursor of the 3-4 grey areas.

Also, I have issues with screen-sharing (in Firefox using WebRTC + xdg-desktop-portal and both xdg-desktop-portal-gnome and xdg-desktop-portal-wlr), even under GNOME 43.1. Note that I use sway-git as my default WM.

Just to provide more information, I use the following env vars (/etc/environment), maybe I have something incorrectly configured:

525.53 is definitely a problematic driver. It breaks a lot of things.

Fazzi commented on 2022-11-25 21:18 (UTC)

Having a lot of issues with this build. Just me?

Launching firefox with video hardware acceleration setup, I get this error: [GFX1-]: glxtest: VA-API test failed: process crashed. Please check your VA-API drivers.

Discord doesn't launch, gives me these errors: [19563:1125/] GPU process exited unexpectedly: exit_code=256 (electron) 'gpu-process-crashed event' is deprecated and will be removed. Please use 'child-process-gone event' instead.

Is there a package with developers version of the drivers? The latest version is 515.49.19 for this.

tnujaka commented on 2022-10-12 14:09 (UTC)

New version released. It would be great if you update it to 520.56.06

When I tried to install either of beta drivers (nvidia-beta or nvidia-beta-dkms) I get an error:

==> dkms install --no-depmod nvidia/515.76 -k 5.10.147-1-MANJARO
==> dkms install --no-depmod nvidia/515.76 -k 5.9.16-1-MANJARO
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 5.9.16-1-MANJARO (x86_64)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/nvidia/515.76/build/make.log for more information.
==> WARNING: `dkms install --no-depmod nvidia/515.76 -k 5.9.16-1-MANJARO' exited 10
==> depmod 5.10.147-1-MANJARO
==> ERROR: Missing 5.10.135-1-MANJARO kernel modules tree for module nvidia/515.76.

Is there way to avoid the error?

@dbermond, do you mean like this? It does not work. Both paths exist and are built.

sudo pacman -U ~/.cache/yay/nvidia-utils-beta/ ~/.cache/yay/nvidia-beta-dkms
loading packages...
error: could not open file ~/.cache/yay/nvidia-utils-beta/: Error reading fd 7
error: '~/.cache/yay/nvidia-utils-beta/': cannot open package file
error: could not open file ~/.cache/yay/nvidia-beta-dkms: Error reading fd 7
error: '~/.cache/yay/nvidia-beta-dkms': cannot open package file

If it is not obvious, I get exactly the ~~same~~ similar error as @ChrisK.


Running yay -Syu while it contains updates of nvidia-utils-beta nvidia-beta-dkms (both packages should be clean-built) actually fails with this error:

looking for conflicting packages...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: installing nvidia-utils-beta (515.57-1) breaks dependency 'nvidia-utils-beta=515.48.07' required by nvidia-beta-dkms
 -> exit status 1

The only way I found to ~~fix~~ work around this error is to reinstall it like this:

# Fix by removing and reinstalling the packages
yay -R nvidia-utils-beta nvidia-beta-dkms
yay -S nvidia-utils-beta nvidia-beta-dkms

# Just to make sure everything is updated
yay -Syu

@ChrisK The package already depends on "nvidia-utils-beta=${pkgver}" (see the PKGBUILD). You need to separately build nvidia-utils-beta and nvidia-beta-dkms, and then install both together with 'pacman -U path/to/nivida-utils-beta path/to/nvidia-beta-dkms'.
