I'm a bad maintainer, but I use the x86_64 nvidia driver on one machine.
I have also done lots of refactoring in the PKGBUILD in the past. If
nobody else will, I can take them.

Have you tried to neutralized the wrong nvidia module by renaming it.

Hi,
Found the problem, forgotten to install the nvidia-kernel-dkms package.
Very happy all work great now and all of the CUDA stuff I installed also
works!

Thanks for your comments,
Jim
