@beny and blaze:
Did you follow the nvidia archlinux wiki? There is a special section for custom kernel:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NV ... tom_kernel

I would be surprised that I could built it for you. I might not have the time now.

You have to install ABS on your system.

The latest firmware update should cover most hardware. You may need to blacklist nouveau if it gives you trouble as mentioned in another thread.

Nvidia 9600gt: use nomodeset, see:

Or maybe xf86-video nouveau without nomodeset:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/No ... stallation

Pacman -S xf86-video-nouveau

Is good for blaze too:

For me no problem with Intel. Nvidia should work too.

@beny:
It seems you were right the linux-headers are not there:

Code: Select all

root ~ # dkms install vboxguest/5.0.6
Error! echo
Your kernel headers for kernel 4.2.3-nemesis cannot be found at
/usr/lib/modules/4.2.3-nemesis/build or /usr/lib/modules/4.2.3-nemesis/source.
root ~ # 
@brokenman:
Is it possible to get the linux-headers for 4.2.3-nemesis
