for desktop , using a driver nvidia require a kernel ( linux) for , it wont works if drivers is just added
( need in fact to be compiled drivers & kernel in the same pass )

for option yay see this ( as pacman )

use theses options - Ss - Qs or -Si -Qi for search

moved to #other-os since it's about Arch Linux.

I installed linux-lts, it didn't work?
