You need to get rid of the first two. Some weird leftovers of probably non-Pacman managed modules.

You can use "pacman -Qo" to check the owners.

[adam@hark ~]$ cat /usr/lib/modules/extramodules-*-ARCH/version
3.18.2-2-ARCH
3.18.2-2-ARCH
4.7.2-1-ARCH

The patch is for 4.8 kernels and shouldn't get applied on your 4.7 at all.

How many /usr/lib/modules/extramodules-*-ARCH directories do you have?

$ cat /usr/lib/modules/extramodules-*-ARCH/version

..should produce "4.7", which is lower than the "4.8", and the patch shouldn't apply.

Getting a fail on install. Not sure how to apply the patch.

Yeah, but there's still extra/nvidia, and you could also test the patch provided.

The talks are in https://devtalk.nvidia.com.

Does this patch work?: https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/957992/linux/370-23-incompatible-pointer-types-with-nvidia_drm_gem_prime_soft_fence_event-on-32bit-with-4-6-7-/

@Det, can you find a patch for i686 on the current beta?

Det commented on 2016-08-25 10:39

Does extra/nvidia work? Is the old version still in your /var/cache/pacman/pkg?

zobi8225 commented on 2016-08-25 10:05
