New kernel 4.11 = No nvidia

Again, a new kernel is released and dkms nvidia doesn’t build. This is not to ask for support since it is likely that nothing can be done before a new nvidia or a new kernel is made available. This is just to report disappointment.

If you have the nVidia 340.102 version…

What I have done…
Boot with a previous kernel
Make a copy of /usr/src/nvidia340-340.102-1/
Get the patch from here:
Unpack the attachment and copy to /usr/src/
Replace in this patch file: kernel/ with nvidia340-340.102-1/
Apply this patch: patch -p0 < nv_patch_340.102_linux_kernel_4.11
Answer each question with: n
Build & install the kernel-module for kernel 4.11
dkms build -m nvidia340 -v 340.102-1 -k 4.11.0-desktop-3omv
dkms Install -m nvidia340 -v 340.102-1 -k 4.11.0-desktop-3omv


For other nVidia version you have to find the right patch

@adelson.oliveira It’s so difficult for you to select English/Support instead of main English category every time you open a new thread?
Are you aware that users subscribed to Support category will not receive any notification when a post is posted under another category so you’ll have less chance to get help?

If you have any problem please let us know, we can help you.

Thanks MauRice, I’ll check for a proper patch.

Rugyada, I use to post at the support category. I just thought this would not have a support available, I was wrong as MauRice has shown!

Thank you both.

@adelson.oliveira Support requests must go in English/Support category.
Otherwise you just give me more work as I will move your posts to the proper category anyway.

Thanks for collaboration.
