Hi all,

Has anyone been successful installing the Nvidia blob with kernel 4.4.70x
and 4.4.71x while using Leap 42.3?

ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia-drm.ko'. This happens most
frequently when this kernel module was built against the wrong or
improperly configured kernel sources, with a version of gcc that differs
from the one used to build the target kernel, or if a driver such as
rivafb, nvidiafb, or nouveau is present and prevents the NVIDIA kernel
module from obtaining ownership of the NVIDIA graphics device(s), or no
NVIDIA GPU installed in this system is supported by this NVIDIA Linux
graphics driver release.

It was working with kernel 4.4.68


So, it builds OK, but refuses to load ? Check whether nouveau is blacklisted.
Rin mkinitrd.
