NVIDIA Vulkan Beta Driver 515.49.14 out now

By - | Views: 18,784

NVIDIA has released the latest update to their special Vulkan Beta Driver, for developers and users who want to test out the very-latest stuff. Designed mostly for developers, normal every-day users should probably just stick to the regular driver

Here's what's added / changed in version 515.49.14:

VK_EXT_attachment_feedback_loop_layout is a new extension worked on by people from Valve, Collabora, Google, Igalia, Samsung and Arm. As the official spec reads:

"This extension adds a new image layout, VK_IMAGE_LAYOUT_ATTACHMENT_FEEDBACK_LOOP_OPTIMAL_EXT, which allows applications to have an image layout in which they are able to both render to and sample/fetch from the same subresource of an image in a given render pass."

That mhwd fuckery...

It works flawlessly here.. kernel header package is needed for it to be able to compile the modules.

Maybe someone with manjaro can help you with that, but it seems that distro is doing something differently with the packages, which is why you are getting problems

Quoting: Pirolisinow I am following this guide let's see if something change
It works, if I had to bet ,I guess was this modification that makes the difference GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="nouveau.modeset=0"

That is strange. Manjaro trying to default to nouveau? or doesn't add the nvidia modules into startup or something?

does manjaro have mkinitcpio?

[email protected] ~ $ grep MODULES= /etc/mkinitcpio.conf
#     MODULES=(piix ide_disk reiserfs)
MODULES=(hid-logitech-hidpp nvidia nvidia_modeset nvidia_uvm nvidia_drm it87)


Thats the place that hooks up modules early on boot at least for Arch/Arch-based distros.

Basically command mkinitcpio -P should check and list the modules for all kernels but that should be done automatically when you install new nvidia packages/kernels but just in case can always manually run.

edit: Then again, manjaro seems to invent their own bicycle with many things, which break the compatibility with Arch/AUR packages.
