[3.2.2] [x64] NVIDIA 340.xx series support

Post#1 by Oracle » 17 Jan 2017, 01:08

http://dl.porteus.org/x86_64/Porteus-v3 ... 64-1bp.xzm

How about 340.xx or 375.xx series support? Is it officially available or user need to create themselves?
Could anyone send me some guides, links to DIY? Probably need a lot of help and love since I am very new into Linux, Thanks.

Yeah, ncmprhnsbl, I still can't create a 340.xx (currently 340.101) Nvidia driver module with the new kernel 4.9.

Oracle, it seems that Bogomips has some clue about this subject. Take a look here: viewtopic.php?f=49&t=6523

340.98 should be all go. However don't think my card stretches so far. Can help you there if you start topic in Intermediate/Advanced Section. :)

  1. For starters, using link in this post viewtopic.php?f=39&t=6397&p=50600#p50598 need to download NViIDIA..x86_64..run for 340.98.
  2. On a real filesystem

    Code: Select all

    mkdir  nvd
  3. Extract to Directory

    Code: Select all

    sh  NViIDIA..x86_64..run  -x  --target /Path/to/nvd/nv340.98
  4. Feed back that got so far awaited.

Hi Bogomips,
based on your suggestion, I downloaded NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-340.101.run, extracted it to /mnt/sda1/nvidia/nv340.101/ already.

340.101
I share some of the possibly to be patched files in mega.nz (based on information on your thread https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=6523)
https://mega.nz/#F!4pAw3aSS!mY0Y9yBGDNA9_72jqhUyQw

kernel/nv-linux.h
kernel/nv-drm.c
kernel/os-mlock.c

Currently taking a quick 101 Google course, how to use Linux patch :%)

Afraid there are Issues with 340.101, however 340.98 is known to run on Kernel 4.9. Can make do with 340.98 for time being?

^ No need to patch as root.

Code: Select all

sudo rm -r  /mnt/sda1/nvidia/340.98
Now extract again, no need to be root. Check the patch file, etc.

UPDATE

Downloaded the .run to see if it patches OK.

I think I should use the patch here, http://pastebin.com/raw/0XE0e8Wx

The patch you provided viewtopic.php?f=49&t=6523&p=51997#p51977 is for version 304.

Let me try again.

Good news.

This error seems to occur when the patch file ends on a line that includes nothing but whitespace characters. Patch files should always end with a Unix return character. If you encounter this error, check to see that the last line of your patch does not contain whitespace characters.
Lesson learned, must press ENTER at the last line of patch file.

Good news? Still an error. Check drm.c against patched extract here: viewtopic.php?f=51&t=6522&p=51843#p51807

I'll have a go at patching it next, and see if come up with same error. Should be clean.

According to your thread viewtopic.php?f=49&t=6523
Next step is :
4. Boot into Text Mode, blacklisting Nouveau > Compile
5. Save Changes > Enter init 4

I know how to boot into text mode, but what is blacklisting Nouveau > Compile?
I suppose I should boot into text mode, and run /mnt/sda1/nvidia/340.98/nvidia-installer

According to thread viewtopic.php?f=39&t=6391
etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-installer-disable-nouveau.conf

Code: Select all

# generated by nvidia-installer
blacklist nouveau
options nouveau modeset=0
Because the nvidia-installer doesn't want to run when nouveau is loaded ( I guess so )
