Arch stuck at boot when replacing nvidia with nvidia-dmks

Replacing nvidia with nvidia-dmks casues that after the system gets stuck during boot.

$ sudo pacman -S nvidia-dkms
resolving dependencies...
looking for conflicting packages...
:: nvidia-dkms and nvidia are in conflict (NVIDIA-MODULE). Remove nvidia? [y/N] 
error: unresolvable package conflicts detected
error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies)
:: nvidia-dkms and nvidia are in conflict

Is this ok as it is or some log required?

From the message it look you didn't replace nvidia with the dkms version

Of course I didn't because had to restore from tty2, so that command is after that.

Re: Arch stuck at boot when replacing nvidia with nvidia-dmks

So you put the most unhelpful snippet you can find (about not changing the driver)?

1. If the system stuck, post logs (journalctl, xorg log....), check boot without 'quiet'.
2. with dkms, check that you don't see errors during build (specifically the pacman post install hook).
3. if you can change to tty2, the system is not stuck.
