OK, I honestly forgot that I included an example config file. Since I don't have the hardware for testing, and since I still don't have a sense from users that it is a requirement, I will leave it in the post_install and depend on the user's ability to read pacman's output and manually copy the example over.

@CourteousGeek without providing dmesg logs or Xorg logs I can't help you. @esturiano I don't use SDDM.

I don't want to spam the thread with useless messages. If you guys want I can try help. I'm on Freenode and

@vicpt I saw your сcomments in step 15 and did everything as you suggested. But the SDDM does not start. Yours starts, but several users report that it does not.

@vicpt I've tried but can't to get passed the tty,i have added the xorg config in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-nvidia.conf correct with syntax and permissions seems normal, i can't get an Xorg log because sddm needs to be started. 5.10 works normal but 5.11 don't.

@Zappo-II for older kernels the best approach is building yourself. For 5.4 you have all you need here:

vicpt commented on 2021-02-26 23:42

@ansgoati it should work, check your config file ownership and permissions (and syntax if you wrote by yourself). If all good and still not work, check your Xorg logs to see whats going on.

@esturiano not a driver problem, driver works as expected on 5.11.

vicpt commented on 2021-02-26 23:17

@graysky -18 works as expected. Message informing the user about the need of config file and a respective minimal (template) config file is the best approach in my opinion. Otherwise if installed automatically can break user specific configurations. So in sum, its all ok and working on kernel 5.11.

I temporarily switched to 5.10.18-1-lts. Everything works fine with the nvidia-340xx-lts-dkms. I hope that the driver will start working on 5.11. I'm really looking forward to it. @graysky thanks for your time and work.

Sorry for dumb asking, will these and later versions continue to work with linux 5.10 or doesn't anybody care for earlier kernels...??? far as I can see it won't work with 5.4 LTS anymore, does it...??? By the way @graysky: Mate, thanx for all your dedication for maintaining this package that I am using for ages with my Lenovo Laptop, you're my hero...

@esturiano - Yes, only change. Use the 'view changes' to see:
