Nvidia 545 with 6.6 kernel

I’m running Manjaro stable with kernel and 535.129.03 nvidia drivers. I was wondering if the latest new features branch version 545.29.02 are supported on that kernel.


(“Yes, but not on Stable Branch yet.”)

Yes, it does. However, the 545 series is only in the unstable branch thus far. See Switching Branches - Manjaro

No, it doesnt and no it isn’t. That was referencing the 470 series. :wink:

Stigmatism. :person_shrugging:

Works on unstable, just installed kernel66.

Thank you for your reply,
Is this only for the official manjaro repositories? Yesterday I installed the 545 from the run file on the Nvidia website just fine but with the 6.5. kernel.

Dont do that.


So just as a rule of thumb → always install everything through pacman and official repos?

I made a backup before doing that and have already reverted to it so now just switch branches and install the new drivers via pacman?

Not only on manjaro, on everything that is linux (there are a few exceptions) use whatever repository you have access to.
Downloading and installing from a website is a windows thing.

No need to install with pacman, follow yochans instructions on how to switch branch and your installed nvidia drivers will update to the version in the unstable branch.
If you want to change to the latest kernel:
