Hello all! I am back for the second time with this problem, but this time, I do not manage to solve it in the previous way. The nvidia-390xx package has ceased to exist? Without it, it seems, I will not be able to install the driver. My card is nvidia 540M.
It is about the package “nvidia-390xx”. For 340 there is this package, for 390 there is no more
You can use nvidia-390xx-dkms instead.
Then you need kernel headers too, but they should be there already.

Or I’m spouting stupidity however. I’ll make sure once again 100% and let you know…

-t for a dry-run, i.e. just to see what would be done without -t.
Exactly as you wrote. Apparently for this install script I have to manually download these packages:
Packages missing from currently configured repositories:
nvidia-390xx-dkms nvidia-390xx-utils nvidia-390xx-settings
I don’t know why I insisted on not using the script, as I used with the -b switch. Age does its thing as you can see… I will check the result in a moment
All be done. Thank you for your patience
Please note that using flag
nvidia-inst adds a third party repository which contains those pre-built legacy nvidia driver packages.
But of course you don’t have to add the repo since you will have the (updated) packages from the AUR with e.g.
