I did this tutorial.

First uninstalled everything and installed from AUR all for nvidia-340xx and the dkms - rebooted and nothing.
Then uninstalled again and followed the tutorial - rebooted and again nothing.

Is the module in some of the packages and how can I extract it ??


Hello @GokuSan :wink:

Check this folder:

find /usr/lib/modules/$(uname -r)/extramodules/ -name "nvidia*"

and please post this content:

cat /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-drm.conf

However… I would rather say it is nvidia_drm and not nvidia-drm.

Hi :slight_smile:

$ find /usr/lib/modules/$(uname -r)/extramodules/ -name "nvidia*  # its empty.

However if I check manually

$ la /usr/lib/modules/5.10.56-1-MANJARO/extramodules/
.  ..  version  # Only this file is present.
$ cat /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-drm.conf
options nvidia_drm modeset=1

For example

modinfo nvidia_drm

will show you the path… if not there try nvidia

$ modinfo nvidia_drm
modinfo: ERROR: Module nvidia_drm not found.
$ modinfo nvidia
filename:       /lib/modules/5.10.56-1-MANJARO/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.ko.xz

Nvidia and nvidia-uvm exist.

$ fd 'nvidia-uvm' /

@megavolt I just recompiled the driver through dkms. This is the short output of the log

$ vim /var/lib/dkms/nvidia/340.108/5.10.56-1-MANJARO/x86_64/log/make.log

Can this help you, help me :slight_smile:
Colud this be the culprit for me not having the nvidia-drm module ?? :thinking:

I searched a bit… could it not be the simple fact that v340.108 just don’t have nvidia_drm? nvidia_drm was at that time not there as I remember… Maybe I am wrong.

If I search it:

KMS site: at DuckDuckGo

I get no result.

If I search it like this:

KMS site: at DuckDuckGo

The earliest version is 390 which documented KMS and therefore nvidia_drm.

So my conclusion: Below v390 has no nvidia_drm (KMS).

Hello, have a :coffee: am buying :slight_smile:

I had the module prior to 19.Dec.2020. It was working. I accidentally deleted my /usr directory and after I reinstalled everything, the module was gone.
Since than I had one post about it, but it wasn’t solved. This is my second post about it in hopes that I resolve the issue and find the module. There must be someone on this forum that uses the nvidia-340 with this module.In the meantime I’ll keep looking if I missed something.
