Install DKMS automatically without the parameter --no-depmod

So I finally figured out why my PC is freezing and it is because of the
--no-depmod command when installing DKMS.

I removed the old DKMS and re-installed it without using the --no-depmod parameter. No Freezes, No GPU Fallen off the Bus.

How can I make it that everytime I pacman -Syu a new Nvidia Driver that DKMS is installed without the --no-depmod parameter

Thank You for your help

Re: Install DKMS automatically without the parameter --no-depmod

depmod is called by the script, once per kernel instead of after each module. I really doubt this is your issue.

Does just depmod when it's a problem fix it?

You can do 2 things you can install DKMS without --no-depmod or your start the pc and enter the command sudo depmod -a before using the computer, both fix my problem with freezing.

You're using the latest dkms package? It would skip depmod when removing the old module on upgrade, but I don't see any reason it would skip it when rebuilding the module.

Apparently it does
Here is the entry when installing DKMS I thought this was normal behavior.

:: Post-transaction-Hooks werden gestartet ...
(1/6) Creating temporary files...
(2/6) Arming ConditionNeedsUpdate...
(3/6) Updating module dependencies...
scr(4/6) Install DKMS modules
==> dkms install --no-depmod nvidia/510.47.03 -k 5.16.14-arch1-1

Right, it calls dkms with --no-depmod because it doesn't want to call depmod for each build. It calls it once at the end.

So why does my computer crash with --no-depmod and without it not?
