nvidia 304.131-patched for Port 3.2 rc2

Post#1 by donald » 25 May 2016, 04:30

This is a patched version of the original nvidia 304.131 -- 32 Bit driver.
I build this one for myself, because the original one do not work with the
newer kernels used in porteus 3.2 rc2.
It seems to run fine with XFCE - the only DE i use - but it should (hopefully)
work with other DEs.
Please leave a message if it doesn't
Download
For non-German speaking people:
(wait 15 sec, click "Jetzt zur Download-Seite" > click "Klicke hier, um ihn zu starten"
that's all...and sorry for the ads on this page.

@ Even
This is the latest "legacy" Driver supporting older Hardware like
the widely used nvidia chipsets 7025/7050 n630a.
go here to find out which driver one can use:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html
Unfortunatly there were some changes in newer kernels so that the
latest driver supporting such Hardware don't run anymore without
being patched.
regarding rc3:
if it will sport the same kernel version...nothing has changed.
