The install script sounds cool. Either would work I guess. By the way the systemd service should be installed in /usr/lib/systemd/system.

I suggest adding some way of keeping user changes of configs. Currently if you make some changes (for example I need to adjust pci ids), then after removing a package and then reinstalling it, I need to make adjustments again. I am making changes in: etc/X11/nvidia-xorg.conf (just fix nvidia gpu pci id) etc/default/nvidia-xrun (fix nvidia gpu and pci bridge ids) I am not sure (at the time of writing this) if it is intended to edit them directly or specifying correct ids in some overriding file (at least there are such examples in project's Readme and in ArchWiki).

To keep user changes it is possible to use backup array in PKGBUILD. Or I can think about another way of solving a problem: adding an .install script to the package that will automatically detect nvidia pci id and pci bridge id and then change it after installation.

Any thoughts?

Can you please add nvidia-xrun-pm.service to the package?

install -Dm 644 nvidia-xrun-pm.service "$pkgdir/etc/systemd/system/nvidia-xrun-pm.service"

/usr/bin/nvidia-xrun sources /etc/default/nvidia-xrun. It should be included in PKGBUILD install -Dm 644 config/nvidia-xrun "$pkgdir/etc/default/nvidia-xrun"

Moreover in /usr/bin/nvidia-xrun for UNLOADING MODULES the command should be rmmod OR modprobe -r

echo "Unloading module ${module}" execute "sudo rmmod ${module}"

@Witko, I finally found the button that gives maintainer permissions. Now you have those.

PedroHLC commented on 2019-01-18 21:16 Seems like bbswitch is no longer needed.

Could I also be maintainer of this one? Ive asked for it quite some time ago. When i want to test new stuff this is a nice way for me to do it. But as im not the maintainer i cant change it when i need to. I also dont want to create a competitive package.

That fork has several problems.

1) It only contains updated .spec files for Fedora packaging.

2) It has been merged upstream, because upstream is not, in fact, dead.

This fork seems more updated...

Why bbswitch?
