Will this package be updated to match current linux-rt package version?

Since I'm maintaining this for Manjaro I can aswell adopt the package here, too... ;)
updated to 375.20

As it seems a lot of extra work for nothing to package and test this package, I'm disowning it. I recommend using the distro nvidia-dkms package instead (which I personally have been using for a while now). Requires installing linux-rt-headers in addition to the linux-rt package.

Sorry about the total lack of any responses to the nvidia-rt package.

If you still need me to do anything to give you the package let me know.

Sorry for just disappearing, real life got in the way (work/family)

(I know im not the first)

Truly sorry for abandoning this.

I haven't been running Arch of late, I always thought i'll set it up one day again and continue but that hasn't happened since I started my last job,
I shall do soon though.

@vee: Thanks for pointing out this problem! I missed the change of the package, and since I don't have any systems with nvidia as a primary card, I never saw the problem. Just a couple of systems running bumblebee occasionally.

My X was failing to start after upgrade to X Server 1.18, with a FATAL error module "nvidia-modeset" not found.

Driver version 358.16 generates three modules `nvidia.ko`, `nvidia-modeset.ko` and `nvidia-uvm.ko`, however the PKGBUILD is missing installation of `nvidia-modeset.ko`.

Updating PKGBUILD's `package()` method to the following fixed the issue:

package() {
install -D -m644 "${srcdir}/${_pkg}/kernel/nvidia.ko" \

install -D -m644 "${srcdir}/${_pkg}/kernel/nvidia-modeset.ko" \

if [[ "$CARCH" = "x86_64" ]]; then
install -D -m644 "${srcdir}/${_pkg}/kernel/nvidia-uvm.ko" \

gzip "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/modules/${_extramodules}/"*.ko
install -d -m755 "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/modprobe.d"

echo "blacklist nouveau" >> "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/modprobe.d/${pkgname}.conf"

Tested on the following kernel and xorg-server:
1. linux-rt 4.1.13_rt15-1
2. xorg-server 1.18.3

@blackhole: I don't think so. If you look at the official package, yes the patch is included, but it never gets applied...

Don't know what it's supposed to fix, but so far it seems to run fine without it?

@jhernberg are you sure that the nv-drm-343.36.patch is not necessary?
That patch is always there in the official nvidia 352.09

FWIW, I've uploaded binaries and source to the archaudio-production repo. Hopefully it makes life easier for a few of you :)

As linux-rt 4.0.4-rt1 has been released, here is the corresponding nvidia-rt buildscript:

@Morgan_Cox: My offer to adopt this package still stands :)

I think I'll upload binaries of this package too, when I add it to the archaudio-production repo in a few days.
