Linux: NVIDIA Driver 375.39 vs Kernel 4.10

  • I run Fedora on my primary desktop at home and just updated to kernel 4.10. NVIDIA's later driver has a bug that causes it to fail to compile with this kernel. Posting the workaround in case anyone else runs into this issue.


    Extract the installer:

    sudo chmod +x ./
    ./ -x

    CD into driver directory and download patch:

     cd ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-375.39

    Apply patch:

     patch -p1 < kernel_4.10.patch

    Run the driver installer:

    sudo ./nvidia-installer

    Driver should install successfully!
