OpenCL install conflict while nvidia driver installing

Hi, just like i said in the subject when i trying to install nvidia 440 driver from the pamac it says that

  • conflicting dependencies: - opencl-nvidia-440xx and opencl-nvidia-340xx are in conflict

and even i setup with a fresh install its just says this error i just want to install Nvidia driver with latest OpenCL version.

If by default MHWD is identifying the Nvidia GPU, your system has, to be compatible with video-nvidia-340xx and installs that, then the OpenCL will follow the same version. If you want to manually install a different driver, then make sure you remove the older one. Before you move forward please provide:
inxi -Fxxxza --no-host

That means you are using the free driver and not the proprietary one. Make sure you follow this:

Read it upfront before committing to install. Once is done and working, then install the
opencl-nvidia-440xx package if is not installed during that procedure.

Thanks for your help i installed as you said drivers and opencl without any problem but now i have another problem vsync is not working correctly i tried to switch nvidia then programs opened but panel and window manager didnt open and background was dark i tested the vsync its working on nvidia then i went back to intel its not working and switched to hybrid (its not actually switched by log out so i made it as startupprogress then i restarted my laptop it switched) and yeah vsync is not working on hybrid like intel, i changed optimus-manager settings for vsync before all i have done then i tried to use __NV_PRIME_RENDER_OFFLOAD=1 __GLX_VENDOR_LIBRARY_NAME=nvidia vivaldi then it said vivaldi commant not found if you can show me how can i use this i really appreciate you thanks for taking care of me btw.

Most is covered by that tutorial, i can't add more to it, just make sure if in hybrid mode you use the shorter command:
prime-run vivaldi
If using just the Nvidia GPU, then you need no custom command as everything will run trough it. SInce i had no hands on such devices i can't give more advice than there already is there. :slight_smile:

Alright then have a nice day!

Sometimes vivaldi is launched by vivaldi-stable if you use AUR install.
