@Askannz Thanks. BTW you could go the bumblebee route:

The official nvidia packages are, as listed in the dependencies of bumblebee:

nvidia - NVIDIA kernel driver
nvidia-340xx - NVIDIA kernel driver for even older devices
nvidia-390xx - NVIDIA kernel driver for old devices

Since AFAIK some form nvidia is required for this package.

@jpegxguy I changed the blacklist path and removed the nvidia dependency.

I though legacy packages like nvidia-390xx provided the virtual package nvidia, but it does not seem to be the case. Oh well.

I think the blacklist file optimus-manager.conf should go in /usr/lib/modprobe.d like other arch packages do it (e.g. nvidia)

The nvidia dependency lists packages that are a bit "off", to say the least. I use nvidia-390xx, and I had to edit the PKGBUILD.

The official nvidia packages are listed here:

Please add the 'git' package to your makedepends.

The packages manager "yay" (command: yay -Syu --devel) always see a commit and it tries to update it even if there is no commit.

It's probably a mistake in the PKGBUILD see here:

@ValHue @jpegxguy should be fixed in the new v0.4 release

jpegxguy commented on 2018-11-24 23:20

@ValHue It needs this in the service file


Add it with systemctl edit or edit the file directly because it will be there in the next release anyway. It's fixed in github master but not in 0.3
