NVIDIA 304.* driver on 4.* series kernel (MSI K9N6PGM2 motherboard, NVIDIA GT610 adapter)

Couple of days ago, I've run into a problem with 340.* NVIDIA driver not being able to load on this system -- some issue with IRQ sharing (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi....php?p=5494905). The previous 304.* series driver(s) worked okay for years on the very same hardware, with 3.* series kernel.

As nobody offered any advice, I've had a notion of trying to install the 304.* driver (304.131, actually). However, while it was building okay, it couldn't load the kernel...

SlackEX (Slackware Current/14.2) with KDE 4.14.3 (latest) and kernel 4.4.1 (latest)

Updated 02-03-2016 at 12:03 PM by exton (MORE INFO)

SlackEX is based on Slackware Current/14.2. Slackware is the first widely-used Linux system, which is still developing. Slackware has existed since 1993. The older the fiddle the sweeter the tune or as we say in Sweden: Gammal är äldst.

NEW FEATURES in version 160203 of SlackEX
I have replaced kernel 4.3.1-x86_64-exton with kernel 4.4.1-exton-huge with support for “everything”. Most important is that I have changed repositories from Slackware 14.1 to Current. I.e. upcoming...

Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 4.4.1!

Posted 02-02-2016 at 09:06 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)
Updated 02-02-2016 at 09:07 AM by exton (More INFO)

I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit kernel for Slackware Current (14.2) and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk and SlackEX. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel huge. “My” kernel 4.4.1-exton-huge has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 4.4.1 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released 20160131.

What’s new in kernel 4.4.1?
