Failed to install linux510: nvidia-utils 495 conflicts with nvidia-utils 470

Hi there! I’m new to manjaro and just got my manjaro 21 kde installed.

And I tried to install the lts kernel version linux 510 by:

sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux510

but it failed and the console prompts something like “installing nvidia-utils (495.44-6) breaks nvidia-utils=470.63.01 which is required by linux513(my current kernel)”. anyone knows how to switch the kernel to 510?

And I don’t really want to upgrade nvidia-utils to 495 'cause I read it somewhere that nvidia-utils 495 breaks the display. any hints would be appreciated thanks.

That kernel is out-of-date and no longer supported or provided, so it’ll give errors, yes.

I’m using 495 Nvidia drivers without any problems. But your experience might differ. Only way to know, is to do and see. And, anyway, mhwd has video-nvidia-470xx available, so you could install that.

Altrhough, the more I think about it, the more I realize you’d probably need to do it from a chroot environment, or a different kernel. So just keep that in mind, if nothing else.

Can be done from running system too.
In case you have a custom /etc/X11/mhwd.d/nvidia.conf do a backup of it so you can reuse it … Remove the current video-nvidia and then install video-nvidia-470xx, then install linux510. Restore your custom nvidia.conf if needed. Reboot to linux510 and remove linux513.

thanks, I removed linux513-nvidia and the current nvdia-util, then installed the linux510-nvidia-470xx and linux510 kernel. then I rebooted to linux510 and removed linux513
