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.

Linux 5.4 just hit the core, patch much pl0x?

With that release, I think that it might also be a good idea to limit the maximum linux version supported by the package, as it seems that a new major kernel revision is much more likely to break it than not, and that'd provide some notice to the poor nightly updaters.

Per, it seems that it is possible like this:

makedepends=("nvidia-340xx-utils=${pkgver}" 'linux>=5.3.6' 'linux<5.4.0' 'linux-headers>=5.3.6' 'linux-headers<5.4.0')

Except, of course, for the version ought to support 5.4 the values will have to be different. :)

Thank You!

@leejnk - When linux-5.4 hits [core]... currently 5.3.x is in [core].

leejnk commented on 2019-11-26 10:22

Please add support for 5.4 kernel

I can't build this: "NVIDIA: calling KBUILD... make[1]: /usr/src/linux: No such file or directory. Stop. NVIDIA: left KBUILD. nvidia.ko failed to build! make: [Makefile:192: nvidia.ko] Error 1 ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build(). Aborting... " (I'm on kernel 5.3.11 by the way)

Guys - is anybody working on 340 compilation on 5.4 kernel?

graysky commented on 2019-10-13 11:14

I have a working PKGBUILD. I will push it once linux-5.3.6-1 comes out of [testing] due to the obvious incompatibility with previous versions.

@graysky Use dkms or rebuild the package every time you upgrade your kernel.
If you would like to bump pkgrel every time kernel updates, I can give you co-maintainer.

@JerryXiao - You'll need to modify this per kernel package changes.

Changes to kernel:

See nvidia-390xx as a model:

Hey can you please add this patch? It fixes the usercopy error in dmesg.
