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 let the package in -16 with historical patches for now. We need to test different xorg configs just to be sure.

Same thing with -16 no OpenGL. It can be xorg server related configs...

Let me know if the original patches or new patches give different results. I can add a post_install that directs users to create the needed config once you guys tell me which patches to use.

@bieel1503 at first I didn't. Now after trying few games that used to work I noticed they stop working. What package are you using, -14 or -15? @graysky reverted the patches he used in -15 to the original ones used in -14 to build the new one -16.

I'm gonna test -16 (with historical patches plus the new one for 5.11) and report back.

@vicpt It worked, thank you very much. But have you noticed a problem with OpenGL? It just won't work, somehow.

@graysky having that minimal config file included in the package must cause problems for users that have specific configurations, so maybe informing users they need that file in order to have xorg server loading the correct legacy driver should be useful. Maybe a pinned post?

graysky commented on 2021-02-24 19:22

@vicpt - OK, I will push -16 which is just -14 (my patches + the new one).

Recommend that you share your results on the appropriate wiki page.

If anyone want a minimal Xorg configuration file to specify the "nvidia" driver instead "nv" one here it is, in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-nvidia.conf :

Section "Device"
        Identifier "Nvidia Card"
        Driver "nvidia"
        VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation"
EndSection

Apparently the problem has nothing to do with the driver. After some debugging I noticed the driver is indeed working, the problem is xorg related.

After a manual configuration of xorg, specifying the driver to use (nvidia) instead of (nv) my graphics are back again.

@graysky the package is ok (probably since -14). Thank you for your time and attention on this package.

vicpt commented on 2021-02-24 16:21

@graysky as you can see dmesg doesn't report any errors and still the driver doesn't work.

@taro_kun do you have the driver working on your setup with the patch you have mentioned in your last comment?
