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.

@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:

I had the same problem sddm not starting. I downgraded to kernel 5.10.16-arch1-1 together with nvidia-340xx-dkms 340.108-18 and sddm is OK now.

So maybe the problem is in the kernel patch.

Dear @graysky. First thank you for Your work. 17 and 18 differ only in fixing a typo in 'post install'? Now I tried 18. The result is negative - sddm does not start. (I noticed a typo on 'post install' earlier and experienced 17 with the 20-nvidia.conf file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/).

@bieel1503 - Corrected in -18. Let me know if the example config needs to be tweaked.

bieel1503 commented on 2021-02-25 19:31

@graysky yep, -17 works just fine. but you mistyped on 'post install', the path should be "/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/".

@holyArch that happened to me as well, i just uninstalled the nvidia packages, rebooted, rebuild it and it worked.

Hi. on 5.10 patch all was working flawless, now with 5.11 i suppose is the config file but the gui does not work well. xinit cannot initialize.

Using version 17 and manually typing the config on 20-nvidia.conf on kernel 5.11, not successful. GeForce 9500GT.
