Just to let you know. Kernel update 4.18 leads to "installing linux (4.18.1.arch1-1) breaks dependency 'linux<4.18' required by nvidia-vulkan"

Based on this commit and this commit, you need to change the line _extramodules=extramodules-4.17-arch to _extramodules=extramodules-ARCH in the PKGBUILD

jcstryker commented on 2018-08-05 13:39


This is due to a change in the extramodules directory with the latest kernel package in the arch repos. Should be resolved now, let me know if you have any other issues.

The build is failing for me with the following error:

==> Starting build()...
cat: /usr/lib/modules/extramodules-4.17-ARCH/version: No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

The file does indeed seem to be missing. Is there some package I'm missing, or is this due to a change in the kernel packages?

The regular nvidia-vulkan is packaged for the standard linux kernel in the main repos, while nvidia-vulkan-dkms is packaged for use with dkms and can be used with any kernel(standard, linux-lts, linux-hardened, etc.)

Feature-wise there is no difference, so when in doubt use the non-dkms version.

twisty commented on 2018-07-22 03:13

What is the difference between the two packages (dkms vs not)?

@DAVVVVE I am glad you got this working on your system

jcstryker commented on 2018-07-17 20:16

To properly handle the choice between nvidia-vulkan and nvidia-vulkan-dkms, I recommend using an AUR helper with proper split package support.

You are very welcome. I corrected the package to provide nvidia-utils and opencl-nvidia.

While testing, I was able to install cuda on my system. Let me know if you have any other issues.

It is structured as a package group, so this package will build the nvidia driver, utils, lib32-*, etc.

Most aur helpers will let you pick which components of the package group to install, which is where you would choose the main or dkms version of the driver, same process with a standard git clone and makepkg(though I suppose the -i flag would cause issues).

Some aur helpers will let you build the package but install only specific packages of the group e.g.:

'aur-helper -Syu nvidia-vulkan nvidia-vulkan-utils'

This would avoid the conflict between nvidia-vulkan and nvidia-vulkan-dkms.

If you or anyone else has an idea on how to structure this better I would welcome it. However right now it works well for the way I install aur packages (aurman).
