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.

Confirming that none of the 5.11.x kernels work well for me with this driver on my machine (mid-2009 macbook pro with 9400M). I moved back to a 5.10 kernel (I had 5.10.16 handy) and that fixed my issue. To be clear, with this driver and a 5.11 kernel, I can start X11 just fine, however I'm having issues with libEGL. mpv can't play movies because a double free crash occurs:

free(): double free detected in tcache 2
Aborted (core dumped)

With this backtrace:

Doesn't work on 5.11 here too.

linux-5.11.14.arch1-1-x86_64 with nvidia-340xx 340.108-18 does not work for me (ga-p35-ds3, gtx260, sddm, plasma)

The driver works with kernel 5.11.13 on my ThinkPad T61p (gdm and plasma), not on my AMD desktop

"Anyone please can confirm are there troubles or not with this driver and linux 5.11.13.arch1-1" - yes, me, my Thinkpad R61 only works with this driver on lts-kernel

Today I have updated the system with pacman and I have Graphic mode again. I use XFCE and LXDM, now I can write the password and everything seems Ok, but when I open an application, window manager is not working and I don't have the windows controls.

I tried to execute xfwm4 or xfwm4 --replace but I get the error gtk-warning cannot open display:

With a ps xfwm4 process does not appear.

@tioguda you gave me such a great idea man!!

I completely disabled the DM, I changed the default target to (instead of graphical target) then configured a minimal .xinitrc to start properly the KDE and in the end I automatized startx to autostart after login and finally automatized login user with systemd.service!! Got rid off DMS for good!!

You Rule man! Keep it simple brothers!!

@leopseft @auriculaire I just trying to get the nvidia package work, on kernel 5.11.8 i was able to switch to nouveau maintaining the nvidia but after the upgrade and installing the lts kernel xinit can't start, i have sddm.

auriculaire commented on 2021-03-27 16:13

@ansgoati Personally, I didn't try to reinstall "nouveau" because my graphics card (GeForce 9400/integrated/SSE2) is too old, and I know that my pc (mac) often crashed when I first installed archlinux with "nouveau" by default. However, @leopseft gives you a good direction that you can refine by searching the internet. Sorry about that.
