I’m running Manjaro, but using a patched kernel from AUR since it has some nice fixes for my system. (It’s the linux-zen-g14 kernel running on my Asus Zephyrus G14 GA401IV_GA401IV.) I read somewhere that in order to have my Nvidia drivers rebuilt with each kernel update, I needed to switch to nvidia-dkms. Some time back I got the
nvidia-dkms driver installed, don’t remember how … It rebuilds with each kernel update, but it doesn’t seem to update between versions of nvidia drivers.
When I try to
sudo pacman -S nvidia-dkms, I get “Target not found: nvidia-dkms.” I’m starting to think that
nvidia-dkms is available in the Arch repositories, but not Manjaro. I’ve seen in this thread some advice to not mix Arch packages in with Manjaro. I’m thinking of trying with nvidia-beta-dkms from AUR–I have no need for a beta driver, but at least I can easily install it.
Is there a reason
nvidia-dkms drivers aren’t brought over to Manjaro? Have I backed myself into a corner by trying to use a custom kernel?
Thanks for any help you can give!
