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.

@JerryXiao , if I use xf86-video-nouveaux some time it freezes system, so I am forced to disinstall xf86-video-nouveaux and use nouveau kernel module (without acceleration)

@sacarde no, use nouveau instead.

is this module right for an old: [GeForce 6150SE nForce 430] ?

I had to do this to get OpenGL to work:

sudo mv /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/{,.old}
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/nvidia/xorg/ /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/

For more details, see

It seems that you are using some sort of script to keep old modules during kernel upgrade. Reboot the system and you should be fine.
