Hello, since my nvidia gtx660 (gk106, kepler) card doesn't play well with the newest nvidia 313.x drivers i need to be able to keep installed the 310.19 series.
To do this i'm going to add these packages on the pacman's ignore list this way:
IgnorePkg = nvidia nvidia-utils
Since i do not want to blacklist kernel upgrades, how do i recompile the nvidia kernel module so that linux updates will not leave the machine unbootable every time i update it? I thought to install the nvidia-supplied installer and just executes it every time the kernel gets updated but it sounds a pretty dumb solution, so i thought about dkms? Anyone?

SInce you mentioned it, there's dkms-nvidia in the AUR, just change it to whatever upstream version you want.
Thanks, a custom dkms-nvidia did it, nice!
