    I'm going to skip over Linux Kernel 5.6 and jump to Linux Kernel 5.7-RC5. Even in Linux Kernel 5.6.11 in Arch Linux, PulseAudio is not listing NVIDIA HDMI Audio. Linux 5.5 is working just fine compared to 5.6.

        At least three Linux kernels are being developed simultaneously: 5.6. 5.7 & 5.8. Announcements every few days for each of the three. Three Linux kernels were released by Ubuntu all on the same day.

        v5.6.9/ 2020-05-05 23:09

              You should definitely read more release-announcing emails then ;] Most of the time he's gentle as a lamb there.

                I compiled Linux 5.7.0-rc5 successfully, but as I was attempting to install the DKMS nvidia module for the kernel, I get this:

                less /var/lib/dkms/nvidia/440.82/build/make.log
                Code:

                So that's not going to work. I'm thinking about getting an AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT just to get away from NVIDIA GTX 960.

                  This is the correct answer.

                    Important fixes from upstream get backported to older kernels, so that distros don't have to up-version any sooner than necessary.
