This new version is wrong.

It just repackages the current, fixed version of repo nvidia-dkms for the linux-pf kernel that is currently installed.

The package will prevent pacman sysupgrade the instant repo pushes a new version update to nvidia-utils (because of this versioned depends in PKGBUILD). /As of now, it also has a bogus "linux-pf>" entry./

The installed package will also break when there is a new linux-pf update without a new nvidia-pf update.

It can also potentially break if there is a simultaneous new linux-pf update and nvidia-pf bump, if the user just builds linux-pf without immediately installing it, then builds nvidia-pf, then wants to install both.

(The reason behind the latter two issues is this line of PKGBUILD, which was designed by repo maintainers for a specific setup of build steps - building, then installing the intended kernel version before creating the nvidia module package. It does not make sense to just copy-paste repo's solution to this AUR pkg.)

It's better to just rely on nvidia-dkms, which will do the correct thing every time there's a new linux-pf update and/or an nvidia-dkms update, and won't ever prevent sysupgrade.

My recommendation still stands: delete this package, no one has used it for the last 2-3+ years, and no one needs to.

I did the installation of nvidia-pf but I'm finding it failed to load.

the package() function throws an error in sed invocation, complaining about nvidia.install being missing from root directory.

Looks like nvidia.install was removed in this commit c4fdae6200e3 but is still referred in package() function which results in the aftermentioned error.

nvidia.install is missing.

Won't build with kernel 4.10 without patching (kernel-4.10.patch form main repo nvidia package)

kumofly commented on 2017-02-24 22:38 (UTC)

For 378.13 compilation with kernel 4.10: Add this string after "patches here" in PKGBUILD: patch -p1 <<< $(curl

Bad md5sums and missing file: nvidia-drm.ko
