Most likely yes, but not just yet. You can use this for now:

Are these hooks going to be included in some official arch package?

I just added 2 generic dkms hooks to Andrew's hooks. You can check them out here: I'll probably retire my *-hook packages soon.

@AnAkk, yes that is the plan, I'll try to look into hooks this week-end, should be able to free some time.

Could this be turned into a pacman 5 hook? This way it could properly be applied _after_ both kernel and headers package are installed, as this often not the case since pacman install the headers last.

Maybe, and when I have time I'll fix this, unless someone sends a pr before, but that was no reason to erase the entire section about hooks in the wiki without a proper investigation.

@alucryd, no I did not know that. The DKMS-version of the legacy driver I need is not building due to a GCC version mismatch, so I cannot test until the bug that I reported has been solved.
That doesn't change the fact that this package does not work with nvidia-340xx

@zenlord: You do realize that dkms.service won't build the modules in time for Xorg to work and you'll have to reboot anyway? Using this hook was the only way to have a working system after a single reboot, dkms.service needs 2 of them.

I have added a bugreport based on douedd's comment below.

Also, I will notify the package maintainer that indeed the PKGBUILD needs to be changed due to changes in legacy nvidia-drivers.

Also, the legacy packages in extra should probably be updated to provide 'nvidia-dkms'.
