• Updated Friday and broke X/NVidia


    first i would allways try is to have LTS kernel and LTS nvidia installed (can be installed aside from latest ones)
    In case of a problem you can boot on LTS.

  • @emyrbateman, @joekamprad hi - sorry for this question but it is not completely clear what to do about linux headers:

    The package

    linux-headers-4.16.8-1
    

    is installed - but when I did run

    sudo pacman -S nvidia-390xx-dms
    

    it installs but says it requires installing three different kernel modules:

    4.14.40.1-lts
    4.16.7-1-ARCH
    4.16.8-1-ARCH
    

    I don’t know how to install multiple kernel headers. Is there a simple way?

    I am not sure what it causing dkms to see the old kernel, may you do not reboot after last kernel update?

    what shows uname -a ?

    linux-headers and linux-lts-headers can be installed side by side … but 4.16.7-1-ARCH should not be present after installing latest one (update)

  • @joekamprad I ended up doing a complete reinstall (as you saw in the other topic) so I didn’t really investigate further this issue with linux headers.

    Anyway, uname -a gives

     4.16.8-1-ARCH 
    

    as the current kernel.

    I imagine for future updates I will have to try (manually?) to stay with this kernel and with nvidia-390xx.

  • may caused by a not completed update the kernel image of the previous kernel was still there…

    Thats not a common problem…

  • –closing– as unsolved, because new install …
