Patch Nvidia-dkms for Kernel 5.14rc1-1

Hello I am using Garuda for 3 months now and been happy so far but when I updated linux-mainline 5.13 to 5.14rc1-1 I get errors with nvidia-dkms when installing the kernel so I searched and found this:

the problem I have is that I don't know how to patch the nvidia-dkms driver

I hope you can help me

The mainline kernel is only experimental as you are probably aware, issues are to be expected when running this kernel. Unless your hardware is extremely new another kernel may be a better fit. However, there is no way for us to know that as you did not provide your system specs with a inxi -Faz output.

Welcome to the forum.


But the Packager would know.

$ LANG=en pacman -Si nvidia-dkms | grep -E "^Version|^Packager|^Build"

If you include terminal outputs in your post, please use the proper output format in your post.
Using "~" 3 times above and "~" 3 times below the text block will provide a readable, raw look.

I much happier with 5.13 Cacule. I will test 5.14 rc2 later today with the new dkms driver. hopefully it works.
