Note: gbm egl support requires egl-wayland 1.1.8. The repository egl-wayland is currently at version 1.1.7. Use egl-wayland-git if you need this feature until 1.1.8 reaches the official repositories.

nvidia-powerd is available (again?) and can be installed for nvidia-powerd.service

+    install -D nvidia-powerd -t "${pkgdir}/usr/bin"

However, it might be missing some other file or dependency, or is only supported on certain GPUs:

Jan 12 14:22:29 host systemd[1]: Starting nvidia-powerd service...
Jan 12 14:22:29 host /usr/bin/nvidia-powerd[30738]: nvidia-powerd version:1.0(build 1)

@llamajacker I will add it on a next update. Thanks.

Hey there's a bug in your PKGBUILD on line 33:


Should be:


As it's matching any path that has "so" in it (like my arch username), instead of matching ".so" literally.

dbermond commented on 2021-10-29 17:24 (UTC)

@VitalyR Done.

VitalyR commented on 2021-10-27 18:40 (UTC)

Could you include for nvidia's vulkan support? reference:, For now, I add this line to package_nvidia-utils-beta():

# vulkan
    install -D -m755 "${pkgver}" -t "${pkgdir}/usr/lib" 

And add symlink:

ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

This makes the driver works normally.

dbermond commented on 2021-10-14 21:33 (UTC)

@JDAturbo These config files are part of package egl-wayland, which is a dependency here, so they are not missed. I have already added '15_nvidia_gbm.json' to egl-wayland-git, and this file is most likely to be added to the repository egl-wayland package when it update to the 1.1.8 version. See also my previous comment about egl-wayland/egl-wayland-git.

@ToadKing Implemented, thanks.

ToadKing commented on 2021-07-01 19:05 (UTC)

Can this package be updated to install the new nvngx.dll and _nvngx.dll files for Proton DLSS support? It looks like they're only included in the full download, not the -no-compat32 one at the moment which is probably a bug since those files are 64-bit only.

marcBarbier commented on 2021-06-25 19:47 (UTC)

here is the diff for 470 apply it the same way as for the nvidia-beta

Cabopust commented on 2020-12-24 10:23 (UTC)

Note: starting from driver version 460.27.04, the "AllowEmptyInitialConfiguration" option is enabled by default. You can remove it from nvidia-drm-outputclass.conf.

dbermond commented on 2020-01-28 02:37 (UTC)

@errcsool dkms is related to the driver, and not to nvidia-utils-beta. Install package nvidia-beta-dkms for dkms support on the beta driver, instead of installing (for example) the nvidia-beta package.

errcsool commented on 2020-01-27 22:39 (UTC)

How could I modify this for dkms support?

dbermond commented on 2019-08-31 14:40 (UTC)

@Neros Fixed.

  • Important note:

Package nvidia-egl-wayland-beta was dropped since version 430.14-2.

After updating, replace it with egl-wayland from the official repositories with: pacman -Syu egl-wayland

dbermond commented on 2018-09-22 02:40 (UTC)

I would like to thank @Det for all his hardwork in maintaining the nvidia beta packages on the AUR during the past years.

You'll be missed in the Arch community. My best wishes in your journey.

I hope you can reconsider using Arch again :)

dbermond commented on 2018-09-22 02:33 (UTC)

@Det Thank you for the information. It was very helpful.

dbermond commented on 2018-09-22 02:33 (UTC)

@fafryd I pushed an update to include the ray tracing libraries. Thank you for reporting this.

Regarding the paths you mentioned, I prefer to follow the paths currently used by the corresponding official repository package, even though the library name have changed here in the beta version. It's working fine on this way.

Det commented on 2018-09-21 13:53 (UTC) (edited on 2018-09-21 13:54 (UTC) by Det)

I usually diffed the .manifests from the old and new .run's root after any new major release for list of new/updated files (410.57 = [major numbers].[minor ones]).

They mention external changes usually in the changelogs too:

Det commented on 2018-09-20 17:24 (UTC) (edited on 2018-09-20 17:25 (UTC) by Det)

So. Guys. In June 2013, this one guy "Det" once took maintainership over this package. Within those 5 years both Nvidia and Arch have both come a long way, forming a lot of fun obstacles for me to tackle nights over. And Nvidia, it has been just one group of packages out of maaany many in times to come I've pressed "adopt" on over the years. Boy, I'm even a maintainer in the outstanding Wiki. But times change things, as does 5 years.

Fact is, I don't use Arch anymore, I maintain mostly what's left for fun and for "work" I guess. For taking over that responsibility and making that pledge to deliver to the very best of my timed capabilities.

But this is the day I forfeit that responsibility. When I move on and this thing stays behind. But worry not. Another talent will lead on.

For the fine times with this package.

For the fantastic memories with this distribution.

Thank you, and..

May Arch live forever.

2xsaiko commented on 2017-04-24 16:08 (UTC)

I wanted to install a modified nvidia-beta-dkms, wanted nvidia-utils-beta but not nvidia-libgl-beta. Thanks, it's working now, no pacman -Rdd needed.

Det commented on 2017-04-23 16:42 (UTC)

The libgl piece is this (it's a split package): I almost always deal with those with a "pacman -Rdd", but you'll break your system, if you're not careful. Probably tho you're not getting the rest of the split packages installed? Poor AUR tool? Tried manually/makepkg?

2xsaiko commented on 2017-04-23 16:37 (UTC)

So this conflicts with libglvnd, but doesn't provide libgl, so when I try to install it a bunch of packages complain, e. g "xorg-server: removing libglvnd breaks dependency 'libgl'". What am I doing wrong?

Det commented on 2017-04-03 11:12 (UTC)

There is no conflict anymore, you know.

colemickens commented on 2017-04-03 11:10 (UTC)

Yes, I had simply forgotten that it was an AUR package. Regardless, the conflict exists. I've just switched back to the stable driver for now because I want to stay on 'testing'. Just an FYI, not a demand for support or anything. Thanks for maintaining this.

Det commented on 2017-03-25 19:44 (UTC)

Lol. You shouldn't create a bug report about an AUR package.

colemickens commented on 2017-03-24 04:50 (UTC)

Please see this issue, there's a conflict between this package and 'mesa' in testing.

Det commented on 2017-02-14 23:55 (UTC)


Teknoman117 commented on 2017-02-14 22:44 (UTC) got bumped to version 1.0.1 which breaks the PKGBUILD as it looks for 1.0.0.

Det commented on 2017-02-12 18:31 (UTC)

Dat is totally fixed, mate.

Anthony25 commented on 2017-02-12 11:27 (UTC)

Hello, It should also provides 'libegl' and 'libgles' to avoid a conflict with recent mesa update.

:: nvidia-libgl-beta and mesa-libgl are in conflict (libgl). Remove mesa-libgl? [y/N] removing mesa-libgl results in: :: nvidia-libgl-beta and bumblebee are in conflict (nvidia-libgl). Remove bumblebee? [y/N] you may want to work on the conflicts, as bumblebee and nvidia-libgl-beta shouldn't conflict from my understanding- correct?

Xaero252 commented on 2016-12-11 01:06 (UTC)

I'm not sure but shouldn't this package _PROVIDE_ libcl and not _DEPEND_ on it? Seems to be impossible to resolve dependencies with the current depends array.

Needs a PKGBUILD update for vulkan-driver.

Vash63 commented on 2016-12-01 13:10 (UTC)

Can this be updated to provide 'vulkan-driver'? As the non-beta version is currently synced it isn't urgent but I have to either modify this pkgbuild to provide it or switch all of my packages off of the beta ones in order to upgrade my system.

Why doesn't this depend on libglvnd like nvidia-utils?

lubosz commented on 2016-04-01 22:45 (UTC)

This should provide and conflict with nvidia-settings and libglvnd.

lonaowna commented on 2016-03-25 18:04 (UTC)

Both nvidia-utils-beta and nvidia-libgl-beta should conflict with libglvnd.

After two hours it finally got my bumblebee up running again, thanks to this: Check blablo's linked PKGBUILD and the (pending?) edit he mentions there, apparently they are meant to replace those in Extra. Alas they also intend to shift shifting some files around ( ) , all that he puts in nvidia-libgl's /usr/lib used to be in nvidia-utils's /usr/lib/nvidia. Which is a bummer, as bumblebee currently doesn't tolerate the latter package. I copied it manually back for now, same for lib32. Bumblebee has also gained some dumb issues, fixed with this: Which is this: realigned to current bumblebee-git (bit of an explanation at ).

buxit commented on 2016-01-12 08:05 (UTC) (edited on 2016-01-12 08:05 (UTC) by buxit)

for this to work with bumblebee / primus i have to add two symlinks manually: ln -s "/usr/lib32/nvidia/" "/usr/lib32/" ln -s "/usr/lib/nvidia/" "/usr/lib/" (maybe the bumblebee package should do this, since it claims to provide nvidia-libgl?)

352.30 — Changelog: ✔ Added support for the following GPU:    ✓ Tesla K80    ✓ GeForce 910M ✔ Fixed a bug that caused poor video post-processing performance in VDPAU when operating on a large number of video streams simultaneously. ✔ Updated nvidia-installer to use modprobe(8) when leaving the NVIDIA kernel module loaded after installation, instead of insmod(8) or libkmod. This allows the kernel module to honor any configuration directives that apply to it in /etc/modprobe.d when it is loaded. ✔ Fixed a bug that allowed console messages from the Linux kernel to be drawn over the user interface of nvidia-installer.

nvidia-beta and nvidia-beta-all both require this package. That sounds like you're somehow trying to remove it.

OffensiveGuin commented on 2014-09-26 15:27 (UTC)

My system wouldn't start X today, giving a nvidia error. I decided to reinstall the nvidia - beta package, but it fails to install nvidia-utils-beta. When nvidia-utils-beta is installed, pacman says "Failed to prepare transaction could not satisfy dependences: nivida-betea requires nvidia-utils-beta" it looks like when you try to install it, it instead tries to install nvidia-beta?

Det commented on 2014-08-12 04:04 (UTC)

We already have that on the driver component itself.

340.24 Changelog: I switched the source to the HTTP mirror, which gives me pretty much the full speed of ~10MB/s, while the FTP one is seemingly capped at 886 kB/s (many times much less). The web interface will still show the FTP mirror (overridden in the .AURINFO), as it gives you a much easier access to all the driver downloads.

That's fixed in git ( Either install 'nvidia-utils-beta' or temporarily switch to 'pacaur-git'.

Google-chrome, google-chrome-beta, google-chrome-dev, google-earth, google-earth6, jre, jdk and vmware-patch to name a few. I did have high concerns about the use of them breaking my packages, indeed. I'm glad it didn't.

What package would contain the "msg" "msg2" command used in the *.install? Might freak some people out. Everything works nonetheless.

Please update this package, it prevents nvidia-beta-dkms/nvidia-beta from updating, and add the backup line if possible

anish commented on 2013-07-03 06:10 (UTC)

You need to add backup=('etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-nvidia.conf') to the PKGBUILD

Det commented on 2013-07-01 19:35 (UTC)

Started using scripts to update these things. Just mention anything I might've fucked up.

Det commented on 2013-06-27 13:02 (UTC)

Updated and split into 'nvidia-utils-beta', 'nvidia-libgl-beta' and 'opencl-nvidia-beta'. The reason it took me so "long" is that I wanted to upload 'nvidia-full-beta'[1] and 'nvidia-full-beta-all'[2] on the same go. These are for people who are tired of the update conflicts and downloading the same source twice for the two different halves of the nvidia driver. 64-bit systems can also set the option "_lib32=1", which will pull in the 32-bit compatibility sources for all parties involved (again, obviating from the unnecessity of downloading multiple sources) and use them to build the 'lib32-nvidia-utils-full-beta' group. This only needs to be set once and will remain until the lib32-* packages are removed. [1] = [2] =

Oh, I just followed the repo package actually. Also, my nvidia laptop just died and now I'm using an optimus machine, so haven't looked at the nvidia group of packages for a while. Det, interested to take over maintenance?

Det commented on 2013-06-08 06:42 (UTC)

Why isn't 20-nvidia.conf being installed anymore? It's not just for autodetection, it's for hiding the Nvidia logo during X startup as well.

sl1pkn07 commented on 2013-05-03 03:10 (UTC)

have support to 3 systems: systemd, sysv and upstart (see contents on nvidia-persistenced-init.tar.bz2) i waiting to [extra] update greetings

ngoonee commented on 2013-05-03 02:28 (UTC)

I have no idea what that is and what its useful for. As far as I'm concerned if the nvidia-utils in [extra] doesn't provide it this won't. You can modify the PKGBUILD, shouldn't be hard to copy the relevant files over (however, it looks to be tied to the old init system and not systemd ready).

sl1pkn07 commented on 2013-05-03 02:04 (UTC)

Doesn't provide nvidia-persistenced-init? greetings

319.17 available at

ngoonee commented on 2013-04-05 00:17 (UTC)

No it doesn't. In the repos (as far as I can see) only the nvidia package depends on nvidia-libgl. Everything else just requires libgl (which this package provides). If you check the PKGBUILD out you'll notice I have a MIXNVIDIA variable, it relies on some as-yet-un-uploaded dummy packages, I'm testing out the usage of nouveau together with nvidia on the same machine.

Det commented on 2013-04-04 10:16 (UTC)

Doesn't provide nvidia-libgl..?

ngoonee commented on 2013-03-02 02:05 (UTC)

My bad, bugged out the build. Should work now.

BrainwreckedTech commented on 2013-03-02 00:37 (UTC)

This AUR package is missing the /usr/lib/ link that is present in the mainline nvidia-utils package in the official repos. I only noticed becuase I had a VM set up to auto-compile some AUR packages, nvidia-[utils-]beta and cairo-dock* being some of them. The cairo-dock* packages won't compile due to this omission. The actual computers that have the mainline nvidia-utils package from the official repos have this link present.

ngoonee commented on 2012-11-02 00:10 (UTC)

Thanks, tested and updated.

Max-P commented on 2012-11-01 23:54 (UTC)

This now needs "pangox-compat" for nvidia-settings to work properly. The last pango update broke it.

Det commented on 2012-10-29 13:24 (UTC)

It's for hardware accelerated video encoding so I wouldn't be surprised. XvMC was the first equilevant for DxVA. The support was probably just removed in favor of VDPAU.

ngoonee commented on 2012-10-17 02:15 (UTC)

I COULD chuck it in there quite easily, let me do a bit of research as to what it is though =). My system works without it, at least.

gun26 commented on 2012-10-17 01:42 (UTC)

libXvMCNVIDIA is indeed gone, but there's now a which wasn't there before. I'm guessing it goes in /usr/lib?

ngoonee commented on 2012-10-16 02:45 (UTC)

Latest 310.14 no longer contains libXvMCNVIDIA, whatever that is. Heads-up for those who do know and who may be affected by that (it was introduced, according to the help, circa 2002)

commented on 2012-08-06 18:59 (UTC)

mrk3004: "...if a value in the provides is not accompanied by his version, it is ignored..." Uhm, that's not what the wiki says. It's not ignored, unless a package depends on a specific version. I consider this not really a problem in case of this packages.

ShyPixie commented on 2012-08-03 10:45 (UTC)

This line is wrong: provides=('libgl' "nvidia-utils=${pkgver}-${pkgrel}" "libcl" "opencl-nvidia") if a value in the provides is not accompanied by his version, it is ignored. libgl, libcl and opencl-nvidia is being ignored in its variable. Replace "nvidia-utils=${pkgver}-${pkgrel}" by "nvidia-utils=${pkgver}", never place the release of the package. from wiki: Provides: An array of package names that this package provides the features of (or a virtual package such as cron or sh). Packages that provide the same things can be installed at the same time unless conflict with each other (see below). If you use this variable, you should add the version (pkgver and perhaps the pkgrel) that this package will provide if dependencies may be affected by it. For instance, if you are providing a modified qt package named qt-foobar version 3.3.8 which provides qt then the provides array should look like provides=('qt=3.3.8'). Putting provides=('qt') will cause to fail those dependencies that require a specific version of qt. Do not add pkgname to your provides array, this is done automatically.

ShyPixie commented on 2012-05-04 13:53 (UTC)

Strange ... I will check what happened. thank you

commented on 2012-05-04 13:41 (UTC)

mrk3004: lib32-nvidia-utils depends on nvidia-utils which is in the conflicts field of this package. Removing nvidia-utils removes lib32-nvidia-utils and nvidia as well, so there's no need for having lib32-nvidia-utils in conflicts here. If you have used something like pacman -Rdd, then it's your responsibility to remove the other packages manually.

ShyPixie commented on 2012-05-04 13:31 (UTC)

I think it should include as conflicting, because here I had trouble installing this version with the official version already installed. I had to manually uninstall the package that worked.

commented on 2012-05-04 12:16 (UTC)

mrk3004: on filesystem, it does not. But if you want to run 32bit apps, you need lib32-nvidia-utils-beta.

ShyPixie commented on 2012-05-04 12:08 (UTC)

it does not conflict with lib32-nvidia-utils ?

ngoonee commented on 2011-10-04 08:13 (UTC)

Updated, but xorg started using full CPU when some apps (Gnome3 ones, mainly) were open, so I have personally reverted to the old beta with xorg-server 1.10. Be warned.

commented on 2011-06-14 19:32 (UTC)

But it's newer then .04, so it makes sense upgrading event this -beta package: It can take some time before next beta comes out and why to force people to switch now to stable drivers and keep checking if new beta is here or not. This way, people can keep using nvidia-beta package, have most up-to-date drivers and will be immediately aware of next beta when it's available.

@ProgDan - was not intending to imply that you're slow in updating. As mentioned in comments on nvidia-beta-all, I was unsure whether this release is a 'beta' or a 'dev preview', because at the time of my posting only showed 256.38.03 (OpenGL 4.1 dev preview).

Updated to 256.52. ngoonee: please, be patient, I'm always trying to update the package ASAP, but it's not possible every time.

Det commented on 2010-08-29 14:29 (UTC)

Just give him time, we all have our lives. And again, it (256.52) is not a 'dev preview' release. See:

Yes, I build xorg-server. What is the problem with explicit version?

commented on 2010-06-21 08:19 (UTC)

Actually it doesn't. If you look at the PKGBUILD closely, the explicit versioning of libgl is only in makedepends and not in depends.

beroal commented on 2010-06-21 02:02 (UTC)

xorg-server-1.8.1-1 requires libgl with explicit version 7.8.1 so please replace: provides=("libgl=7.8.1" "nvidia-utils=${pkgver}-${pkgrel}")
