Nvidia-340 patch issue

Hi I just installed Manjaro KDE today on my old laptop and i am trying to get nvidia-340 to work in the 5.15 kernel so i tried following a post about patching the driver to work with the kernel and I also disabled nouveau by editing the /etc/default/grub file and at first it seemed to work but I restarted and the driver wasn’t loading so now it won’t boot and I can only access the command line


modinfo nvidia

How output looks like?

Hello and Welcome,

Have you read through this post ??

You can find a lot of answers there + how to patch for kernel 15 and 16 I believe + some other links on the bottom with the same topic about nvidia-340.
