upgraded to nvidia-310.19, but I need nvidia-304xx

I can't seem to install the legacy drivers because of too many dependencies on nvidia and nvidia-utils. How can I get the legacy drivers installed without removing a ton of other programs? Will everything still work with the 304xx drivers?

Shouldn't be a problem:

% sudo pacman -S nvidia-304xx

Post the output.

Re: upgraded to nvidia-310.19, but I need nvidia-304xx

Which specific error do you get?

Which packages require nvidia and/or nvidia-utils?
According to https://www.archlinux.org/packages/extra/x86_64/nvidia/, nothing needs nvidia.
According to https://www.archlinux.org/packages/extr … idia-utils, nvidia-utils is needed only indirectly for libgl.
Since nvidia-304xx-utils provides libgl, it should be no problem and everything should work with the legacy drivers.

Edit: too late

$ sudo pacman -S nvidia-304xx

edit: Once I start trying to remove things package by package, more and more files need dependencies that eventually need nvidia or nvidia-utils.

There are 64bit machines with Geforce 6/7 graphics? Whoa. Is this a laptop or a desktop?

Buy a graphic card. This is a serious suggestion. If you don't have a PCIe slot, there's a GT610 PCI available. As a bonus you'll get VDPAU.

You need to replace your out dated 32-bit libs and try again:

I am getting caught in a loop trying to install the lib32-nvidia-utils-304xx. It still does not want to remove the 310.19 and refuses to 'build'.

You should contact the package maintainer of that package.  You should also get in the habit of posting output to commands to avoid people losing interest in helping you.

Force the removal of 310.19. Then install nvidia-304xx and nvidia-utils-304xx. Then build lib32-nvidia-utils-304 from AUR.

Re: upgraded to nvidia-310.19, but I need nvidia-304xx

I had success using

pacman -Sy lib32-libgl
pacman -Sy nvidia-304xx nvidia-utils-304xx

Then you can build the AUR package listed above

edit: I had to pacman -Rs some other nvidia packages as well, I forget which ones, but pacman will complain about certain files existing in the filesystem. Just run pacman -Qo on the files and remove those packages.
