Re: [ERROR] [SOLVED] makepkg can't extract the Nvidia driver to patch it

You forgot --extract-only ?

Now guess what? I've done the exact same thing as with my main account (extracting the driver package), but with a different user. What is the benefit of this?

Your other thread indicated that this fails and if "sudo fixed it", that's typically just some permission error somewhere.

This was to determine if the issue was limited to the user ironicfur.

Did adding --extract-only produce a coredump using the user someuser?

Nope, it didn't. It extracted the package the normal way.

Re: [ERROR] [SOLVED] makepkg can't extract the Nvidia driver to patch it

On the ironicfur account, running the file without root privileges gave me an error dump

Still the case?

I cannot type 0 in other ttys because the keyboard layout gets corrupted there.

zsh+OMZ?

echo $SHELL # as ironicfur & someuser
echo $TERM # on the "other tty"

Since the path permissions don't seem wrong, what about the output of

ulimit -a # as ironicfur & someuser

?

So; let me tell you how I fixed the driver issue:

1.) I ran the nvidia-all script inside of the alternate user account, but it gave me an error message about conflicting packages.

2.) I removed those packages (strangely including Steam), but it gave me another error about conflicting driver file leftovers.

3.) I then removed said files, installed the patched driver package and ran mkinitcpio -P. I rebooted the machine, and voilà: after a month of b*tching around, IT FINALLY WORKS!!!

The best thing I could do is to mark this issue as solved and start a new thread about the TTY issue.
