With current getting wayland, any gotchas those of us using the NVIDIA drivers should be aware of? Seems to be life as usual with it installed.

Are you using it? I thought it didn't work with Nvidia cards yet?

Un-installed the Nvidia driver, installed the updates which included wayland, xorg, mesa and a new kernel, rebooted and re-installed the Nvidia driver (440.59).
All is well, but if you are asking if I've purposely implemented anything that uses wayland, then, no.

Oops. Spoke too soon. No audio. Seems to be a kernel problem.

Hi guys!

I have a Geforce GTX 980Ti and a G-Sync/ULMB Monitor, I sometimes want to use G-Sync and sometimes ULMB.
The problem is, that the monitor is always announced as G-Sync regardless if G-Sync is ticked in or out in nvidia-settings.
Code:
nvidia-settings -a AllowGSYNC=0
Does really disable G-Sync, but it's still announced on the monitor so ULMB can't be turned on.

When starting xorg i ran nvidia-settings and clicked the "Save to X Configure File" and and saved it in
/etc/X11/xorg.conf

My old solution was to edit xorg.conf, and add a MetaMode in the Section "Screen" which had something like this:
Code:
    Option         "MetaModes" "2560x1440_165 +0+0 { AllowGSYNC=On }"
When i wanted to turn on/off G-Sync, i quitted xorg with ctrl + alt + escape and just change the file (from On/Off)

To the solution: first of all, add 2 modes in xorg.conf, in my case i will have these two lines

Code:
    Option         "MetaModes" "2560x1440_165 +0+0 { AllowGSYNC=On }"
    Option         "MetaModes" "2560x1440_120 +0+0 { AllowGSYNC=Off }"
To disable G-Sync (In my case the 165hz selection is used by default, probably because it's first in the xorg.conf)
Code:
nvidia-settings -a currentmetamode="2560x1440_120 { AllowGSYNC=Off }"
Monitor led is set to white, G-Sync is not announced and ULMB can be used.

To enable G-Sync
Code:
nvidia-settings -a currentmetamode="2560x1440_165 { AllowGSYNC=On }"
nvidia-settings -q AllowGSYNC
nvidia-settings -a AllowFlipping=1 #this is needed for G-Sync to work in wine + dxvk

Hope anyone else has a G-Sync capable monitor which has ULMB as well :-)

The video driver has nothing to do with this particular problem, but thanks for taking the time to reply.

440.64

Nvidia's latest "Long Lived Branch" driver, version 440.64, has been released and
can be found here, https://www.nvidia.com/download/driv...x/157462/en-us

Release highlight:
Quote:
Added support for the following GPUs:

GeForce MX330
GeForce MX350

Fixed a regression that allowed displays to enter DPMS mode even when DPMS is disabled in the X server settings.
Fixed driver installation failure on Linux kernel 5.6 release candidates, where the NVIDIA kernel module failed to build with error "implicit declaration of function 'ioremap_nocache'".

Hi there.
I'm on a slackware64-current.
At the moment I'm on a working nvidia driver version 390.77 and I want to upgrade to 440.59.
I tried to use the SlackBuild script but it failed. (Ref https://slackbuilds.org/slackbuilds/...ver.SlackBuild)

Indeed it fails after the "compiling nvidia-settings block" when it go for:
Quote:
install -m 755 src/_out/Linux_$TARGET/libnvidia-gtk3.so $PKG/usr/lib$LIBDIRSUFFIX/libnvidia-gtk3.so.$VERSION
and this happen because the nvidia-settings compiling doesn't provide the libnvidia-gtk3.so file (I tested this by hand. The compiling goes well, but provide only gtk2 lib).

1. Someone can help me to understand why the libnvidia-gtk3 is expected but my system doesn't generate it. What lead this?
Quote:
# slackpkg search gtk
[...]
[ installed ] - gtk+-1.2.10-x86_64-7
[ installed ] - gtk+2-2.24.32-x86_64-3
[ installed ] - gtk+3-3.24.14-x86_64-3
[...]
All the libs seems installed.
Please note: my current is not fully installed (but is almost full). wayland, for example, is not. I don't think should to be this missing, but if it is, of course i can install it.

2. can you explain me why the libnvidia-gtk* are provided by NVIDIA-Linux-xxx.run script but the SlackBuild script overwrites them with the nvidia-settings products?

I just posted nvidia-440.64 updates to SBo for the next weekly release. There were a view script bugs but nothing that would effect nvidia-settings
  1. both libnvidia-gtk3.so and libnvidia-gtk2.so get generated on my Slackware64-current box. Something screwy with your current install? pkg-config? always re-test on FULL slackware before posting a bug report. Note that Current (15.0) support is EXPERIMENTAL.
  2. The SBo buildscript compiles all the open source nvidia utilities natively on Slackware so that Slackware versions of the necessary system dependencies are used. This is right and proper.
