I was trying to figure it out and then see people saying not to use their installers on manjaro/arch… So is it possible to install this?
There some PKGBUILDs in the AUR:
$ pamac search nvidia beta opencl-nvidia-beta 460.27.04-1 AUR OpenCL implemention for NVIDIA (beta version) nvidia-utils-beta 460.27.04-1 AUR NVIDIA drivers utilities (beta version) nvidia-settings-full-vulkan-all 455.46.02-1 AUR Tool for configuring the NVIDIA graphics driver for 'nvidia-full-beta-all' nvidia-settings-beta 460.27.04-1 AUR Tool for configuring the NVIDIA graphics driver (beta version) nvidia-beta-dkms 460.27.04-1 AUR NVIDIA driver sources for linux (beta version) nvidia-beta 460.27.04-1 AUR NVIDIA drivers for Arch's official 'linux' package (beta version) libva-vdpau-driver-shadow-nvidia 0.7.4c-1 AUR VDPAU backend for VA API. (Patched special version for shadow-beta) lib32-opencl-nvidia-beta 460.27.04-1 AUR OpenCL implemention for NVIDIA (32-bit, beta version) lib32-nvidia-utils-beta 460.27.04-1 AUR NVIDIA drivers utilities (32-bit, beta version)
No idea if it works, but i guess they are made for arch. No warranty that it works on manjaro flawless.
When I searched my package manager with AUR enabled, it returned nothing. But searching in terminal I get the same result as you. How to install though?
pamac build <name-of-AUR-package>
yea, but there are 7 items there with the driver version…
You most probably need these two.
This damn Cyberpunk 2077 game got me up in here reaching for straws trying to install beta drivers in hopes the game might not freeze on me so much… I have downloaded the driver and have been attempting to manually install the thing via terminal trying to root sh install it but no luck… I must be doing something wrong like a noob.
@foxy-jack why didn’t you use the AUR packages that have been mentioned?
They are not showing up for me, in the software center with AUR checked on in settings or when I search the site. This is first time I’ve not just used a quick command line in terminal or the software center.
Well in that case you could try running
pamac build nvidia-utils-beta nvidia-beta-dkms and see if that succeeds. Note that you’ll most probably need to remove the already installed nvidia driver before installing the beta one.
That is what I was looking for! I’ve seen this way of adding beta apps, drivers, kernels to other distros, man alive I hope this works!!
@pobrn That did some stuff & things, I only seen one/two hiccups at the end.
Install DKMS modules [2/2]
==> Unable to install module nvidia/460.27.04 for kernel 5.10.0-1-MANJARO: Missing kernel headers.
==> Unable to install module nvidia/460.27.04 for kernel 5.9.11-3-MANJARO: Missing kernel headers.
A restart is required for the changes to take effect.
Transaction successfully finished.
You need to install the kernel headers for the installed kernel(s):
sudo pacman -Syu linuxZZ-headers (where ZZ is the version like 59 or 510).
Thanks much!! Working on it now!! Should I be worried if my system reboots before figuring out how to do that?
So far I’ve figured out I’m still using the as shipped headers…
pacman -Q | grep headers linux-api-headers 5.8-1
I used the kernal install function found in the system settings thing.
I see I do have 5.10 installed
[mr-excuses@The-Excuse-Box ~]$ uname -r
Got it… I think!!
sudo pacman -S linux-headers
==> dkms install --no-depmod -m nvidia -v 460.27.04 -k 5.10.0-1-MANJARO
==> depmod 5.10.0-1-MANJARO
THANKS MUCH @pobrn for all the help & @inertiacreep for posting about this!!
