Does anyone have a recommendation for this particular setup:
GeForce GTX 770 (passthrough to Windows VM)
GeForce GTX 970
linux-vfio - 5.8.13-arch1-1-vfio (from AUR)
nvidia-440xx-dkms 440.100-1 (from AUR)
System update fails due to inability of nvidia-440xx-dkms to be installed on both 5.9 and 5.10 - or rather their corresponding vfio patched kernel versions.
It was really easy to have the system up to date all the way up to 5.8. Normally, vfio patched kernel is built (installed) after an hour or so, and then dkms takes care of nvidia drivers - they get built (installed) as well and system is then ready for a reboot.
I have tested installing nvidia-440xx-dkms on stock Manjaro kernel 5.10.2-2 and I also faced the dependency conflict as giobego above - yay did not resolve the conflict in my case.
So, it seems nvidia-440xx-dkms on both stock and vfio patched kernels is broken, and the maintainer and packager of AUR (en) - nvidia-440xx-dkms has apparently quit.
- What are my options ?
For now I’m stuck and sitting on 5.8.13-arch1-1-vfio as it is the last one with which nvidia-440xx-dkms was able to be installed.
Thank the stars for Timeshift + dd + external backup disk.
