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

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

@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?

Apparently extra/nvidia (i686) is also still 367.35:

This doesn't compile on i686:

/build/nvidia-beta/src/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-370.23/kernel/nvidia-drm/nvidia-drm-fence.c:414:37: error: passing argument 2 of 'nvKms->allocateChannelEvent' from incompatible pointer type [-Werror=incompatible-pointer-types]
/build/nvidia-beta/src/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-370.23/kernel/nvidia-drm/nvidia-drm-fence.c:414:37: note: expected 'void (__attribute__((regparm(0))) *)(void *, NvU32)' but argument is of type 'void (*)(void *, NvU32) {aka void (*)(void *, unsigned int)}'

Works ok on x86_64.

You can try directly installing nvidia-utils-beta with makepkg, or seeing if there's anything in the meat manpage for installing all split packages.

I use Yaourt. Lot of people I know use pacaur.

E: Looks like meat is unmaintained since 2013, and wasn't even pulled to AUR4: https://github.com/e36freak/meat/commits/master, https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/?K=meat-git

It's not listed in the Wiki either: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AUR_helpers

How do I do that?

Or can you recommend an AUR helper that works better than meat?
