Important: Starting today this repository will compile the kernel from source – the binary package is now available in a custom repository:

From now on the prebuilt kernel will be built using clang 10 as clang 9 has some weird non-determinism as per

Seems you need to add bison to dependencies? Failed in prepare() without it. Fine after manual installation.

Thanks, although you should update the pkgrel

linux-nitrous (AUR) is supposed to be the same as linux-nitrous (pacman repository) just that the AUR version is compiled from source.

This one still being 5.5.11 is a coincidence because I did not actually intend to keep this one at 5.5 but since nvidia was causing some problems it was better to keep this one as is.

linux-nitrous-git is the development version (which most of the times is the same as this one)

I will update this one now. Usually, the AUR and pacman binary versions are the exact same versions and updated at the same time.

Good news! The nvidia-dkms package has been updated to patch the driver for Linux 5.6. Now you can use that as usual.

If you installed the driver manually, start the installer with the --uninstall flag from a TTY, making sure there are no GPU applications running.
