Here's a working PKGBUILD for 396.24.2 (by tkg on discord):

@Det Im not sure if it does either, however I was able to modify your PKGBUILD to pull it from

Doing some playing around with DXVK with the new driver, not noticing much difference so I may just switch back.

The nvidia-vulkan-developer-beta? There's no such thing as nvidia-developer, and even from asking in Phoronix last time, I'm still not sure if the Vulkan driver actualy incorporates all the main branch changes.

Is this pulling the developer release, with the .02? Could you include the full version number?

EDIT: stupid question, it is clear that it is not. It's a shame that the nvidia-developer package is no longer maintained.

E: I don't really update to Vulkans, and there's also no way I'm upping epoch for 396.24 → 396.18.07.

Not only sddm, but my whole KDE installation stopped working, so I had to revert to the stable nvidia drivers.

After upgrade to beta drivers my sddm show only black screen(

A note about the .02 driver, it's more than just a developer/testing release. It has massive performance improvements for DXVK that are user facing.


For anyone reading this, to avoid this on 396.18 you can set the variable "__GL_NextGenCompiler=0" to disable the new vulkan compiler.

Not sure if the ".02" vulkan driver is really an update:
