Nevermind, after checking dmesg I realized I needed to run mkinitcpio. Thanks

I currently run the DKMS version with the stock kernel. Any error messages when you run dmesg?

Can't seem to get this to boot using the DKMS package on stock and zen kernel

@krompus i managed to get steam running after installing the lib32-drivers (and opencl , but dont know if you need this) and than did a restart

@chimaera I'm glad you were able to resolve it, arch recently fiddled with the naming of their extramodules directory, but it should be stable now with new kernel releases. Using makepkg -i wont work because this split package includes the dkms version as well, you need to build it then install manually or use an aur helper.

@krompus I'm not sure that your issue with steam is related to the driver update. Make sure you have all the dependencies and try searching for the error that steam gives you if you launch it from the command line.

@jcstryker Thanks! I've managed to install these drivers now, but Steam won't launch anymore.

cat: '/usr/lib/modules/extramodules-*-ARCH/version': no such as file or directory I get this error during compilation of the nvidia-vulkan

Edit: I solved this issue by updating all my packages. Probably the previous kernel version was too old.

Now it creates all the packages without issues, but there is still one final issue (during the dependency check after I enter the correct user password) preventing the installation:

"nvidia-vulkan and nvidia-vulkan-dkms are in conflict"

What can be the cause of this conflict?

Edit 2: It gave the dependency conflict error via the "makepkg -si" method.

Because I couldn't resolve this conflict via the recommended "makepkg -si" I tried to install the package again but this time by using the AUR helper bauerbill.

And it installed without problems. Maybe it's not because I used bauerbill but because I rebooted, I don't really know. But anyway it worked and I think these instructions may help people with the same problems :)

I am getting this error as well, still investigating. The download link does work in firefox but fails when makepkg uses curl.

As a workaround for now, you can create a ~/.curlrc file with the line --http1.1

I'd like to try this driver out because I hear that it works better with Proton for Steam than the main nvidia 410.57-4 driver. I'm getting a download error when I try to install this, though. I entered the url in my browser, and it was unresolved. Removed the "s" from https (so, just http), and I was prompted for the download. Tried editing the pkgbuild with that, and the download error persisted. Any ideas what the issue might be? Thanks!

I'm getting the following error:

:: installing nvidia-vulkan-utils (396.54.05-1) breaks dependency 'nvidia-vulkan-utils=396.54.02' required by nvidia-vulkan-dkms
