The input path can be specfifed so it will always work as long as the patch-file is included in the source= array .


Also using the long versions of the parameters makes the patch command  a lot easier to read and understand.

example

patch --directory="$srcdir/folder_where_sourcecode_is_downloaded_to" --forward --strip=1 --input="$srcdir/your.patch"

Re: [SOLVED] nvidia-390xx-dkms build failure

Eventually I had to boot into Windows (after 8+ months!) to prepare the sources in the Linux partition because with that screen resolution in the terminal without GUI, I had difficulties. It's one thing to have a bunch of commands typed whereever (in a DE for instance), its another to be stuck in tty2. So in order to help other users like @TechXero I will provide the following simple instructions. You can even use your phone to visually copy the commands as I did.

cd ~

git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/nvidia-390xx-utils.git

cd nvidia-390xx-utils

curl https://pastebin.com/raw/yFUHW90p > gcc14.patch

curl https://pastebin.com/raw/h6cNVmN3 > PKGBUILD

makepkg

sudo pacman -U ./nvidia-390xx-dkms-390.157-8-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

reboot

Thank me now, you 're welcome. Sure I am a long time Linux user, but not so advanced as others. I came back to Arch after using Mint for almost 10 years.

@twilight0 what were your reasons for choosing that patch?

No reason in particular, it just works.

Re: [SOLVED] nvidia-390xx-dkms build failure

The reason why loqs asked is because this is the -fpermissive/-fno-pie patch which loosens the compiler way beyond what's actually necessary (and I'm not even sure whether -fno-pie  matches the linker settings here - if not, this might actually just introduce relocation issues)

More directly, to save other doofys like me hours of frustration (not because the comments on this post wheren't helpful, you all are amazing and I'm so thankful I found this post, I just didn't understand something lmao), these are the specifics for the 390 at least. I use an NVIDIA Quadro 4000 myself.

your patch should be in /path/to/nvidia-390xx-utils/gcc14.patch, and the exact patch command to insert is this:

patch --dircetory="$srcdir/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-390.157" --foreward --strip=1 --input="$srcdir/../gcc14.patch"

Have a nice day, my friends, and thank you so much to the previous posters for all the help! I hope this helps as well!


Explain it to me like I'm a 5 year old. (not actually, but I'm bit doofy sometimes, be patient haha)

Re: [SOLVED] nvidia-390xx-dkms build failure

--input="$srcdir/../gcc14.patch"

The parent of $srcdir while running makepkg (building) is undefined and can't be relied upon.
example: during clean chroot building $srcdir/../ DOES NOT point to the directory the build command was executed from but to the buildroot of the chroot .

However, makepkg does put everything in source-array in $srcdir, so it should be --input="$srcdir/gcc14.patch"

Re: [SOLVED] nvidia-390xx-dkms build failure

Altough marked Solved I'm still vey unsure what I have to do to get into Arch to run from  3.8.7-arch1-1 or more

I've just tried the latest 6.9 update but it still gets stuck at boot, so had to Timeshift back to the previous installation running 3.8.7-arch1-1 (have added to my Pacman conf IgnorePkg   = linux linux-headers to stop updating the kernel)

I'm running a Nvidia GTX 760 card

I keep seeing about patches gcc14 but am totaly unsure how to to do this (am I the only one here who doesn't understand)

Can some kindly clearly explain where to start and how to go about making and using this patch so I can update to the latet kernel and get Arch back up and running for me please, if this is the solution

Thanks

Re: [SOLVED] nvidia-390xx-dkms build failure

The AUR packages have already been patched, just use them.

And how did you install the nvidia 470 drivers?

pacman -Syu will not update your AUR packages…

Went and had a cup of tea, and twigged the 'AUR' while drinking it and then saw your message Seth

Ran yay -Syu, all is good

Many thanks for pointing it out smile

Question, sometimes I run Pacman sometimes Yay, is it better to run just Yay all the time rather than Pacman , or ?


have a great afternoon all

Re: [SOLVED] nvidia-390xx-dkms build failure

This is actually one of the downsides of using yay, it blurs the line between repo packages and AUR packages and leaves people confused about what they're actually doing too often.
