Need some help downgrading nvidia-304xx on Arch


Hi all. Because of an upstream bug I have to downgrade nvidia-304xx on a new install, so I'm trying to use downgrade but get this message: warning: cannot resolve "nvidia-304xx-utils=304.131", a dependency of "nvidia-304xx" :: The following package cannot be upgraded due to unresolvable dependencies: nvidia-304xx. So what's next? Any help would be welcomed.

Maybe post it to Arch subforum? If it was me, I would simply grab the installer from geforce.com.

Thanks for the reply. All I can get from the site is the current driver, which doesn't work.

Figured it out. Did 'pacman -Rdd nvidia-utils' and the downgrade succeeded.
