[SOLVED] nvidia bad return status for module on kernel - nvidia dkms

Today, I had an upgrade to linux (4.17.11-2) and nvidia-dkms (396.45-4),

Now I'm getting:

Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 4.17.11-arch1-2-ARCH (x86_64)

Downgrading is now producing the same error wherever I go. First trouble I've had with nvidia, and I don't know where to start looking.

These are the packages I upgraded, and I've now downgraded to the previous version of each. I have no idea where the problem may be:

[2018-08-02 19:16] [ALPM] upgraded binutils (2.30-5 -> 2.31.1-1)
[2018-08-02 19:16] [ALPM] upgraded gcc-libs (8.1.1+20180531-1 -> 8.2.0-2)
[2018-08-02 19:16] [ALPM] upgraded gcc (8.1.1+20180531-1 -> 8.2.0-2)
[2018-08-02 19:16] [ALPM] upgraded gcc-fortran (8.1.1+20180531-1 -> 8.2.0-2)
[2018-08-02 19:16] [ALPM] upgraded haveged (1.9.1-4 -> 1.9.2-1)
[2018-08-02 19:16] [ALPM] upgraded lib32-glibc (2.27-3 -> 2.28-1)
[2018-08-02 19:16] [ALPM] upgraded lib32-gcc-libs (8.1.1+20180531-1 -> 8.2.0-2)
[2018-08-02 19:16] [ALPM] upgraded libtool (2.4.6+40+g6ca5e224-7 -> 2.4.6+42+gb88cebd5-1)
[2018-08-02 19:16] [ALPM] upgraded linux (4.17.11.arch1-1 -> 4.17.11.arch1-2)
[2018-08-02 19:16] [ALPM] upgraded linux-headers (4.17.11.arch1-1 -> 4.17.11.arch1-2)
[2018-08-02 19:16] [ALPM] upgraded mercurial (4.6.2-1 -> 4.7-1)
[2018-08-02 19:16] [ALPM] upgraded nodejs (10.7.0-1 -> 10.8.0-1)
[2018-08-02 19:16] [ALPM] upgraded npm (6.2.0-1 -> 6.3.0-1)
[2018-08-02 19:16] [ALPM] upgraded nvidia-dkms (396.45-3 -> 396.45-4)

Help, please.

Re: [SOLVED] nvidia bad return status for module on kernel - nvidia dkms

Please fix your topic title, and do the same with your previous topics where you have had this pointed out to you.

Check the build log, see why it failed.

Re: [SOLVED] nvidia bad return status for module on kernel - nvidia dkms

Not sure what you mean by "previous". It's not something that's ever been mentioned, to my recollection, but I'll expand it.

As for the build log, where exactly do I find that?

EDIT - Worth mentioning that pacman gives me no error until rebuilding the kernel module - which is something I've never encountered. Downgrading the kernel and nvidia-dkms didn't help. I had to revert all of tonights upgrades. I'm not looking for hand holding, just which may be responsible. From there, I'll fix myself.

EDIT2 - since I reverted and puit all the above on hold, glibc has come up with an upgrade that fails. Before I go through it all again, is there a chance that I've simply got my timing wrong, and managed an upgrade before other packages (official, not AUR) were avilable?

/var/lib/dkms/<your_module_name>/<your_module_version>/build/make.log but if you already downgraded the packages the log will be gone.

Re: [SOLVED] nvidia bad return status for module on kernel - nvidia dkms

I can allow the upgrades again. It will drag the glibc upgrade in this time, which may fix it. Let me test.

EDIT:

pacman -Ss gcc | grep 8.2

So why isn't it using it?

The libre/python/blender ignore are in respect of another problem, and the Windows TTF will probably be uninstalled. I don't see either making a difference, though.

Re: [SOLVED] nvidia bad return status for module on kernel - nvidia dkms

What is the output of `pacman -Q gcc`
Edit:
Already covered.
Edit2:
From the .BUILDINFO

installed = gcc-8.1.1+20180531-1-x86_64

The package was not built against testing and is incompatible with the gcc currently in testing.

Re: [SOLVED] nvidia bad return status for module on kernel - nvidia dkms

So sit back and wait? I can live with that if necessary. I'm surprised that they were all pushed out together, though.

Thank you, loqs. At least I know what to hold back and can get the rest updated. And I got around to removing the win 10 ttf packages, too.

Re: [SOLVED] nvidia bad return status for module on kernel - nvidia dkms

The latest linux update has fixed, I assume now built against gcc 8.2.0.2
