New (minor) gotcha with the new 4.14.11 kernel and Nvidia driver


I just installed the new kernel tonight, and when I tried to build the 384.89 Nvidia driver, the kernel module failed. But all was not lost. Nvidia just happened to release an update this evening, 384.111. I was able to build that with no problem, and so far it works fine. For those who don't have the URLs:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html (the new driver hasn't made it to this page yet)

The direct link to the repo:
https://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/

Hope this helps.

Looks like ponce has an updated slackbuild that should build with 4.14.11. It will probably make its way to SBo soon, but for now...

when you have a nvidia link. let me know I fixed the build not a hobby to me. Extract the installer now edit the code for a newer gcc. KISS.
Give me a link to nvidida. Not Ponce.

Fair enough, if you are wanting a fix from nvidia then I guess you will have to wait for the next driver release, but if you look at the patch its a only a few lines of code in one file. You could just extract the .run executable and apply the patch yourself, or just add the few lines of code yourself then run the installer, or last, just download the slackbuilds from ponce and buld, done. Shouldn't take more than a few minutes, but to each his own, I am just trying to help you out.

I updated to 4.14.11 and re-ran the x86_64 version 387.34 NVIDIA installer. It installed without any problems.

in the meantime I updated it in the unofficial repository for current to 384.111 (it wasn't out when I pushed the previous update).
I don't know if Edward feels like pushing this update to SBo yet: it's up to him and SBo supports only stable, so the version that's there is fine.

True, that was just an assumption on my part. Thanks for this update though, do you know if this version is a short term dev version or is it considered a stable release?

according to the page where the lead developer announces the new releases, the 384.x branch is listed as long-lived: also, I suppose the released 384.111 in a rush to avoid breakage with the newers Spectre-safe-kernels so they haven't got the time to update that page yet with the necessary data.

You know, maybe I do nitpicking, BUT...

Nothing protects our sorry asses against Spectre, the KPTI is literally protection against Meltdown.
